Our Story


High Desert Psychological Services was created by Eric Bahra, Dr. Gerald Duprez, and their colleagues with the express purpose of “Providing the best quality mental health and consulting services to those in need.” The desire to of the leadership at High Desert Psychological Services was born out of decades of work providing services to diverse communities throughout Southern California.

Throughout his career, Eric Bahra spent many years working with children and families through the Foster Care System as a child Abuse/Neglect Investigator, working with children and families in residential treatment, children and families in the hospital system, clients and patients with debilitating physical ailments and clients at the end stages of their life. In each of these settings it was apparent to Mr. Bahra that one tremendous core component that was lacking, which was the ability of these individuals to receive adequate and quality mental health care services. 

Approximately thirty-four (34) years ago, Dr. Gerald Deprez, and his wife Denel Lupiani-Duprez, LCSW, opened a small counseling center in Rancho Cucamonga California called Haven Psychological Associates. Throughout the years Haven Psychological Associates was blessed to have been able to serve the Rancho Cucamonga Community for nearly thirty (30) years, but Dr. Duprez felt that he could do more to provide great quality mental health care to a larger community and expanded services to those in need.

In 2019 Eric Bahra and Dr. Gerald Duprez partnered together with their colleagues and established High Desert Psychological Services. Since that time, the practice has grown and expanded to four (4) locations, with more locations expected very soon, and a vast provider network that is fast approaching over 100 providers throughout the Inland Empire and beyond. With our vision of “Developing the best counseling and consulting network in Southern California and beyond,” we feel that the possibilities are endless and that we will continue be able to provide great quality mental health care to those in need for years to come!
