Dr. Ana Nogales is launching a new product – “Doctora Ana: Salud, Psicología & Vida” – an online and published magazine to educate and entertain Latino families.
The mission of Doctora Ana, Salud, Psicología & Vida is to offer bilingual information via a multimedia experience to enrich, engage and entertain the Latina family with topics of health, lifestyle and wellness.
Casa de la Familia is hosting an open house to showcase the magazine and Nogales will also be working with a very informal focus group. This short meeting will take place on Friday February 18, 2011 from 9:00 to 11:00 at 1650 E. 4th Street, Suite 101, Santa Ana, CA 92701. Casa de la Familia is inviting professionals and influential members of the community. They are going to be serving brunch and all participants will receive a token of appreciation for their time.
A native of Argentina, Dr. Nogales is one of the most well-known and respected Latinas in the United States. Through her private practice, media presence, books, and organizational leadership, she has dedicated herself to ensuring the mental health and success of women, Latinos, and anyone else who struggles with cultural and personal issues, victimization, and inequality.
After immigrating to the United States in 1979, Dr. Nogales completed her doctorate degree in psychology at the United States International University in San Diego. She then went on to open her own private practice in 1982 in both Los Angeles and Orange Counties. As a clinical psychologist and founder of Nogales Psychological Counseling, Inc., she is deeply committed to helping members of the Latino community improve their personal relationships and emotional health, as well as adjust to and thrive in the complex multi-cultural environment in which they live.
Dr. Nogales is the founder and Clinical Director of the nonprofit organization, Casa de la Familia, which she established for victims of crimes such as human trafficking, domestic violence, rape, sexual assault, child sexual, and physical abuse. She currently supervises a clinical staff of forty mental health professionals. This organization has a program called Promotores de Salud Mental, which is dedicated to the outreach and engagement of mental health for the Latino community, and is sponsored by the Orange County Health Care Agency.
