“I highly recommend Juli Alvarado and her group for training, consulting, and organizational crisis intervention. As a supervisor of the adoption unit for El Paso County, we have had Juli Alvarado do trainings with a group of clinicians who would in turn provide therapeutic services to our families (trauma informed). She also provided training for groups of adoptive families who were trying to be better parents to their traumatized children. She has presented nationally and locally at conventions and workshops. I continue to use her work in my training with adoptive families (Parenting traumatized Children) on an ongoing basis.

Juli Alvarado is extremely knowledgeable about trauma, trauma informed care, and the importance of all levels of understanding how they impact traumatized children, foster families, and adoptive families. She connects well to people no matter what your role. She is a dynamic speaker and trainer. I can’t recommend her enough.”
