About Me

Hello,

My name is Kishan Bevil and I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) in the State of California. I have a diverse professional and personal background, which has provided me with a multi-cultural perspective, as it pertains to mental health. My professional background includes working with children and youth in foster care, probation detention facilities, wraparound services, and in-home mental health programs, over the span of 12 years. I also work with adults in forensic settings, dealing with a multitude of mental health issues, including schizophrenia, substance use disorders, and trauma. In addition to my overall professional experience, I have also obtained the following certifications: Domestic Violence Facilitator from Anderson & Anderson Psychological Services and Seeking Safety from the Center for Nonviolent Education and Parenting dba ECHO. Seeking Safety is an evidence-based treatment for trauma/PTSD and substance abuse/unsafe behaviors.

As a Licensed Clinical Social Worker, I take a Biopsychosocial Model approach to treatment. This means that I consider how a person’s biology, psychology, and socio-environmental factors are interconnected, and in what ways they influence and impact a person’s presenting problem. I will draw from various evidence-based practices and interventions to address presenting problems most comprehensively. I believe that the most important factor to any intervention; however, is the creation of a collaborative, trusting, and respectful working relationship.

I look forward to joining you on your journey to achieving more positive outcomes, increased emotional well-being, and improved mental health.
