David Green PhD, currently resides in the East Bay, and has devoted 40 years to practicing clinical psychology by treating and evaluating injured workers. Dr. Green, a former active QME, routinely addresses medical legal issues as a treating doctor. He’s conversant with laws and the evolving controversies that surround the psychological treatment of work injuries, particularly, the psychological treatment of chronic pain, PTSD, and related catastrophic injuries. Utilizing evidence interventions, Dr. Green and his team routinely focus their treatment on both identifying and overcoming patient barriers to psychiatric recovery within the worker compensation system. Their clientele include significant numbers of first responders, police and firefighters, prison workers, government workers, public school employees, construction workers and drivers, and healthcare workers.
Dr Green received his PhD from the Clinical Psychology Department at Michigan State University (1984). During the 1980’s, for three years he functioned as a clinical fellow at the Harvard Medical School Department of psychiatry. Early in his career he taught assessment at the former California School for Professional Psychology in Los Angeles. He has also been on the Clinical Faculty at Harbor UCLA Department of Psychiatry during the mid 1980’s where he functioned as a clinical supervisor.
As a licensed clinical psychologist, I enjoy helping people to improve their overall quality of life, not only through symptom reduction, but also through functional restoration. Given my experience working with chronic pain, trauma, depression, anxiety, and stress, I understand that when we are impacted by these challenges, we often feel unable to participate in the life roles that contribute to defining who we are and what we want to experience in life. Psychotherapy offers an opportunity to build and regain confidence, improve relationships, increase productivity, overcome difficulties, and more effectively manage daily life.
In my practice, I use my training and experience in various therapeutic methods to best help clients achieve their individual goals. I employ Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Exposure treatment, Hypnosis, Mind-Body techniques, along with various other interventions to manage pain, process trauma, improve mood, and increase interpersonal effectiveness.

Over the years, I am finding more and more that a work (enjoyable) life balance is one of the most important aspects of living a happy life. I started my journey into psychotherapy back in 2002, that is 20 years ago! Over the years, I have learned a great deal regarding how much our lives are impacted by how we see the world, and what we focus on. I have learned that focusing on the present moment, and enjoying each moment for what it offers can be priceless. I have learned, and now teach others how to live mindfully, not in the past or the future, but in the present moment, as when we leave the present moment is when our suffering begins. My focus is on teaching my patients, and myself, how to live fully by living in the moment, and engaging with the world one breath at a time. I have extensive experience in trauma, and overcoming traumas, as well as approaching the world from a cultural perspective. Based on experience, I have seen that we see the world through the sense of our cultural forefathers, and therefore, sometimes we need to adjust our interpretation of what we see and experience. I have been amazed at the tenacity and strength of the human spirit, and I cannot disregard the presence of an all knowing, encompassing presence of a higher being in our lives. It is for this reason that I encourage patients to look at the world from multiple points of view. Sometimes changing the lens with which we look at the world, can make all the difference in what we see and feel for that matter. Speaking of matter, when it comes to pain management, I do believe that sometimes our brain matter can be wrong in interpreting our pain impulses. Not that pain is not real, on the contrary, it is very real, but how we experience and address that pain can take many avenues to one central place, and that place is a place of peace and tranquility.
Dr. Beau Duvall Psy.D
Dr. Duvall graduated with his doctorate in clinical psychology in 2016. He completed his doctoral internship at Center for Autism and Related Disorders (CARD, Inc.) in Los Angeles, CA, and his post-doctoral fellowship at ABA Behavior Therapies & Testing in San Diego, CA. Dr. Duvall works in private practice, where he partners with several vendors for psychological testing in: veterans disability, social security, autism and related disorders, and worker’s compensation. Evaluation experience has ranged from 12 months to 100 years, and include PTSD, developmental, neurocognitive, and more. He has examined over a thousand veterans, and hundreds of children with suspected neurocognitive conditions. Dr. Duvall started his career in Applied Behavior Analysis, starting with at-home and school-based ABA and progressing to ABA supervisory roles and ultimately diagnostic evaluations. He has provided testing and/or interventions in homes, clinics, jails, prisons, and residential facilities in Sacramento, LA, San Diego, and the Bay Area of California — as well as veteran services in Alaska, Washington, Oregon, and California. He was a spearheading psychologist for the Crisis Intervention Team program within the California correctional setting, where he was tasked with evaluating suicidality, homicidality, and grave disability in an interdisciplinary framework that included physicians, correctional supervisors, and crisis bed staff. For personal enjoyment, Dr. Duvall enjoys writing and producing music for his children and loved ones.
Fariba Monfared Psy.D
As a multicultural psychologist, I am passionate about helping injured workers to discover their unique strengths and inherent values that they may not otherwise see, when in the midst of a work place crisis. I provide a safe environment and an engaged therapeutic relationship—which I strive to establish at my first meeting—in order to pave the way for unconditional respect and empathetic trusting therapist-client relationship.
I utilize evidence-based interventions including CBT, brief therapy, mindfulness-based therapy, client-centered therapy, stress inoculation training, psycho-education, relational-cultural therapy, and motivational-interviewing to identify problems, discuss goals, and develop treatment plans for clients with the wide variety of work injury issues. At the outset of therapy, we address the immediate coping issues, i.e., the issues that usually flow directly from the work injury, the issues that encompass anxiety, depression, chronic pain, PTSD, or cultural relational problems. I patiently guide the client in the process of expressing her/his feelings; as the client develops better coping skills in order to experience and maintain a higher quality of life beyond the work injury.
