• The Scarlet Sisterhood: Treating Partners of Sex Addicts

    Addiction is a disease, end of discussion . . . right? As practitioners within the field of behavioral health and wellness, we have all heard the message, loud and clear. Many of us subscribe to the concept without question, confident in our convictions that addicts are sick people, not bad people. Some of us have built our careers upon this assertion, while others espouse it personally, within our own lives and family relationships.


  • Evaluating a Competency-Based Supervision Approach for Motivational Interviewing

    Motivational interviewing (MI) is a well-known, evidence-based, brief counseling approach for substance use disorders (SUDs) that combines person-centered principles with strategies for enhancing motivation for change (Miller & Rollnick, 2012). Counselors using MI help their clients talk themselves into change by exploring and developing their motivations for change and lessening and resolving their arguments against it.


Julienne  Davis

Julienne Davis was born in Los Angeles. She left home at seventeen to move to New York to pursue a career in classical ballet. When she grew too tall to audition for the corps de ballet, she made the tough decision to quit dance and began a modeling career. As a successful international model, Julienne's career led to her living and working in many cities, including Los Angeles, New York, London, Paris, Milan, Athens, Munich, Barcelona, Madrid, Tokyo, and Bangkok. During her numerous travels around the globe, she learned much about different peoples and cultures. Because London's vibrant cosmopolitan culture held a special allure for her, she made that her main home base for many years. While in the city, she became involved in other ventures, including fashion stylist, club promoter, singer/songwriter, and producer.
In 1998, she auditioned as an extra in Stanley Kubrick's Eyes Wide Shut, but instead landed the pivotal role of Mandy Curran in the film. From that point on, her life changed drastically, and she consequently became an "It" girl in London, leading the celebrity lifestyle, with parties, press, and paparazzi. Her acting, voiceover, and music careers continued to flourish. Highlights include major roles in the films House of 9 starring Dennis Hopper and Come Together starring James D'Arcy. As for TV, she was a series regular for the BBC comedy Too Much Sun starring Mark Addy and Lee Majors, as well as various guest star roles, the most notable being The Bill--which is practically a UK institution. During this time, her band Sophisticated Savage was busy recording and performing live and received a ton of press and great reviews. She sang, wrote and co-produced the band's debut album "Strange Paradise," which is currently available via her band's website, New Paradigm Music and iTunes. After many lucrative years in London, Julienne and her husband (renowned English DJ and writer/journalist Jay Strongman) made the decision to relocate to Los Angeles in the summer of 2006--where they now reside with their three Abyssinian cats in a mid-century modern home that they lovingly restored over a two-year period.
