a little about
Sarah Ann Jimenez, Phd, LCSW
My name is Sarah Jimenez. I am a newly licensed therapist, who enjoys speaking to individuals and/or families with histories of trauma, substance abuse/co-occurring disorder, incarceration, foster care, and/or adoption. I am a part-time college instructor who has been teaching "Clinical Skills and Racial Justice" in the graduate departments of Social Work at both Boston (BU) and Walden Universities, for the past 7 years.
I received my MSW in 1992 from San Francisco State University (SFSU) and have been practicing Social Work for the past 28 years. Currently, I work with children and their families. I have worked for the past 15+ years in Child Protective Services (CPS) in the San Francisco Bay Area. I work with children, adolescents, and families who encounter the foster care (dependency) system. I took my doctorate in Social and Cultural Anthropology in 2008. The focus of my dissertation was on 'Political Prisoners in the United States.' I am passionate about prison reform and what many refer to as the 'Global Industrial Prison Complex.' I am an active prisoner advocate and a prison activist.
