Dr. Mullen's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Mullen "Dr. Colleen Mullen, Psy.D., LMFT has been practicing counseling in San Diego for over a decade. She has integrated success coaching methods into her practice in efforts to help clients that want to effect change quickly and efficiently. Colleen's work in private practice now focused on what she calls Motivation, Achievement and Recovery Coaching. Her clients often present with struggles around alcohol or drugs, relationships, depression, or anxiety. Part of the practice is geared towards her high-achieving professionals and she can provide in home, in-your-office, video-conferencing calls and/or community based meetings as part of her concierge services. In addition to her private practice work, Dr. Mullen is currently a podcaster and contributor on Price of Business dot com and 1110AM KTEK Houston. Before entering private practice in 2007, I held positions as: "Director of Rehabilitation Services (DRS)" at the Salvation Army Adult Rehab Center in San Diego. As the DRS, Dr. Mullen was responsible for client care, supervision of treatment administration, scheduling, program budget, quality of care of a residential drug and alcohol program which housed 145 men and 15 women. "Team Lead" at the Telecare ACT Program in San Diego. Here, she managed the treatment team and coordinated care for over 50 clients per week who were determined to be severely and persistently mentally ill. The ACT model of treatment is community-based so services were often rendered on the street or at Board & Care facilities or Assisted Living homes in which the clients resided. The goal of the program was to help these once long-term institutionalized clients live healthy lives outside of the institutional settings. "House Social Worker" at LLL Group Homes in Ramona, CA. Dr. Mullen oversaw the care of 6 adolescent females in this residential group home. She provided individual and family therapy, supervised staff, coordinated daily activities and house schedule and was charged with making sure all house staff carried out safe and ethical care to the residents who were all foster children in San Diego County."
