About Us

Trauma and Hope was formed by Deepa Patel and Pablo Moro. Deepa and Pablo are considered senior clinicians and have contracted with numerous county, private and non-profit agencies for many years. Through years of experience Trauma and Hope was formed and provides specialized assessments and treatment for children, adolescents, families, and adults as well as consultation and training. Clinicians at Trauma and Hope have expertise in the following areas: trauma informed care, sexually acting out, mood disorders, anger management and substance abuse/use. The treatment methodology comes from a holistic philosophy using evidence based approaches and interventions.


Trauma and Hope educates, advocates, and helps build communities of well-being by providing individuals and families a range of prevention, intervention, and behavioral health treatment services. These services are culturally inclusive, client/family-focused, and recovery-centered through service excellence, leadership and treatment.


We seek to be the mental health provider of choice because we demonstrate the ability to undertake challenges, succeed, and we deliver exceptional services. We seek to impact the mental health system through education and advocacy so that there are sufficient resources to provide services. Our employees develop and deliver services focused on our clients, community, and within our scope of mission and responsibilities.


Trauma and Hope is inclusive, which means we provide recovery-focused resources from specialized clinical assessments to individuals, families, couples, support systems, and the community. Strengthening the lives of individuals and families strengthens our society. Our comprehensive, evidence-based programs and services are designed to give individuals and families the courage to overcome adversity and empower them to meet their recovery goals. At Trauma and Hope, we understand social and cultural differences. We meet the needs of thousands of children, adolescents, seniors, and their families each year, and we treat each individual with dignity and respect, without question. Our clients may face life issues and disease, but continue on their road to recovery despite adversity, encouraging each other. Our staff work to encourage positive change.
