My name is Julian Dalanhese and I am a two-time Dean’s List graduate. I possess a Bachelor degree from Utah Valley University in Psychology and a Master degree in Clinical Social Work from the University of Southern California (USC). I utilize evidence-based practices to treat adolescents and adults with a variety of mental health issues. Among my areas of expertise are: addictions (e.g., illicit drugs, alcohol, sex, food, and gambling), anger management, anxiety, depression, obsessive compulsive, trauma, personality types, and identity loss. I started my experience working for Washington County at the Youth Crisis Center. Then, I worked in the most intense inpatient facility in Utah at the time as a unit leader with juveniles who were gang affiliated from across the US. I worked as a child endangerment specialist and conducted in-home investigations for Child Protective Services for the State of Utah. While attending graduate school at USC, I was a counselor for the U.S. Department of Parole and a group facilitator for clients participating in the California State Probation Re-entry Program.
I entered the mental health field after having a successful athletic career as a football player and coach. It was after coaching as a defensive coordinator that I realized my passion for inspiring and influencing people would require more tools to significantly change lives; this fueled my educational and professional pursuits to become a mental health therapist, a Licensed Clinical Social Worker, and creator of The Language. I am an acculturated therapist that speaks Portuguese while also bringing a combination of experiences that allow me to engage well with clients and establish strong therapeutic relationships necessary to assist one’s personal journey towards change.
