"Implicit Bias: Tools to Heal, Build, & Connect in the Therapeutic Community"

with Dr. Sayida Peprah, Dr. Gregory Canillas,

Stephanie Mushrush, LCSW, & Tim Rogers, LMFT

In these ever-changing and ever-challenging times, diversity conversations are taking place across the country. SFV-CAMFT is aware of the importance of tackling the “Elephant in the room.” Join us for our panel discussion as we take down the “Elephant” one bite at a time!


Dr. Sayida Peprah

is both a licensed clinical psychologist and trained birth doula. She specializes in multicultural psychology, trauma, suicide prevention and maternal mental health. Dr. Sayida has a multifaceted career as a psychologist having worked in community-based, in-home, psychiatric hospital, correctional and private practice settings. She is also a trainer and consultant on topics of cultural humility, implicit bias and trauma as they impact mental and maternal health. Dr. Sayida is the Founder and Executive Director of the non-profit organization Diversity Uplifts, Inc.

Dr. Gregory Canillas

is a psychologist and professor, known to friends and colleagues as “Doc”, takes a “keep it real” approach to his work both with clients and in training the next generation of therapists. His clinical work, research and teaching have focused on the entire range of relationship issues from trauma, abuse and infidelity to conflict resolution, spirituality and self-esteem. He has worked with children, adolescents, adults, couples, students, foster parents and anyone who needed help to better understand themselves, their relationships and their place in the world. Doc’s goal is to use his considerable education and experience to help people to live their best lives.

Stephanie Mushrush, LCSW

is a Filipina who has served her community for nearly 20 years. She is a member of the Washoe Tribe of NV & CA. Stephanie earned her Master of Social Welfare at UCLA in 2013 as an Indian Health Service Health Professions Scholar. She is currently entering her 8th year as a mental health professional, including her work at American Indian Counseling Center - LA County Department of Mental Health, Indigenous Circle of Wellness, as well as at the Washoe Tribal Healing Center in Gardnerville, NV. She also previously worked as a Home Living Assistant at Sherman Indian High School, where she was inspired by her students to become a therapist. Stephanie is committed to supporting the healing and resiliency of individuals, families and communities - with consideration of Native cultures, traditions, and historical, intergenerational, as well as continued trauma. She is active in the local Native community as a participant, music artist, and volunteer, as Chair of the Many Winters Gathering Of Elders.

Tim Rogers, LMFT

is a Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist and is in pursuit of his PhD in Clinical Psychology with an emphasis in Depth Psychology. He conceptualizes that the bottom line to why anyone participates in psychotherapy is as a function for the discovery of self-identity. Deciding to look at your Self, choosing a life worthy of examining is a much deeper and powerfully consistent theme he sees with those he's had the privilege enough to work with.
