Dr. Mark Stahlhuth has been working in the field of addiction since entering graduate school in 1980 at California School of Professional Psychology, Los Angeles, where he obtained his doctorate in Clinical Psychology. After 14 years of working with adolescents in residential treatment settings, which included directing programs in drug abuse treatment as well as in childhood physical, emotional, sexual abuse and trauma, Dr. Stahlhuth went into private practice in 1995. There, he continues to work with teens as well as adults and their families in the areas of addiction and trauma.
He became Clinical Director for Seasons Recovery Centers in July of 2009. During a period spanning 34 years, Dr. Stahlhuth has also specialized in conducting psychological assessments both on an in-patient basis and in residential and outpatient settings, an experience which has its foundation in several years of graduate study in psycho-diagnostic assessment, graduate teaching assistantships, internships and work at agencies specializing in psych-diagnostic assessment.
Dr. Nancy B. Irwin, Psy.D experienced an epiphany when she began volunteer work for Children of the Night, a shelter for sexually abused children in Los Angeles. This work waked up the healer in her, and prompted her to pursue a doctorate in psychology at California Southern University to specialize in the prevention and healing of sexual abuse.
