Aisha Pope is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and Certified Positive Discipline Trainer in private practice in La Mesa, CA where her focus is on family therapy related to adoptions, foster care, and parenting children with special needs.
Aisha has provided therapeutic services in a variety of settings including outpatient, inpatient, residential treatment facilities, homes, and Skype. She also works as a clinical supervisor to therapy interns providing individual, group, and family counseling to youth and their families struggling with a variety of behavioral health challenges. She has taught parent training courses to foster parents entering into specialized foster care with severely at risk youth, teaches Positive Discipline Parenting Classes, and is certified to train others to teach Positive Discipline.
Aisha is the author of My Brother – Autism – And Me, a children’s book about autism, all through the eyes of a sibling. In the book, readers meet a little boy who sometimes struggles to make sense of his brother’s unusual behavior. He understands that because of autism, his brother does some things differently, but when he sees how much attention that gets him from parents and teachers, he sometimes feels left out. While Aisha has been trained in a variety of evidence based therapeutic models, she gains her most valuable training “on the job” as mom to Jayden, an amazing 11 year old who has autism, and Maya, a precocious 4 year old who keeps her on her toes.
