Narges Maududi, LCSW
Narges completed her Bachelor of Science in Psychology and Neuroscience from George Mason University and earned a Master of Science in Social Work from the University of Southern California. As a licensed clinician, Narges strives to create a safe environment that can both guide and nurture patients to thrive and overcome obstacles. Her holistic approach to customer service starts with listening and ends with listening. Narges believes that when patients are treated with respect, dignity, and compassion, they are empowered to draw on their own strengths and realize their full potential to live fulfilling, happy lives. She carries this philosophy into her practice. She believes that “healing is a collaborative endeavor that requires honest caring without judgment and needs to take place in a safe and holding environment.” Part of what marks Narges’ career in mental health is her experiences growing up in Afghanistan. She leads women, by example and evidence-based modalities to become whole, heard mothers, spouses and neighbors who look after each other - not just their own.

Britten Devereux, LADAC
Most recently Britten changed her focus from subacute residential care to outpatient care based on families consistently seeking more flexible service scheduling. It grieves her heart to see people settle for status quo when there is a wild and free life just millimeters away. Her personal story is one of determination and leaving what doesn't work behind. Completing her Master of Science in Addiction Counseling concurrent to a role as Clinical Supervisor, then Managing Director, Britten ensures patients are treated with dignity and that care is tailored, time-bound and specific.“Individual mental health is the axis point to family stability, marketplace innovation and overall wellness.” As a Licensed Advanced Drug and Alcohol Counselor, Britten has her MAC from the National Certification Commission for Addiction Professionals and is committed to see staff and patients reach the goals they did not believe possible. You will often hear her talking about Pacific Solstice being the leading force to change the landscape of psychiatry. Combining services, neurological, social and psychological, she educates families to move from scarcity and deficits, what she calls a wasteland, to psychiatric care that is collaborative and strengths-based, what she calls a capital city. “This ultra personal space of the service sector demands innovation and hospitality. Given over time, generations not just individuals live a different narrative ... one of courage, health and connection.”
