Offering individual supervision, case conferences and consultation focusing on a variety of topics and interventions.
I have 20+ years experience as a therapist and clinical supervisor in non-profit and private practice settings.
My Style: As a supervisor and teacher, my nature lends itself to a the creation of a warm and interactive environment. I am sensitive to students’ diverse learning styles and degrees of experience. My openness, and humor help people to feel safe regardless of the material they bring to the sessions. I am deeply committed to fostering an unfolding of students’ psychological and emotional understanding of themselves as they learn to foster that in others.
My theoretical approach is an eclectic one, as I draw from my many years of experience working in a variety of community based as well as private practice settings. I am well versed in many theoretical orientations, yet, what I have come to understand is most needed, is my openness and flexibility when navigating and collaborating on a therapeutic direction.
For several years, I have taught as an adjunct professor in the MA Psychology Dept. at CIIS and BA Dept. at Patten University. My courses included Addiction , Mental Health, / Resiliency, Psychopathology, and Multicultural Counseling.
Currently, as Assistant Professor, I teach and supervise students in Group Practicum within the Community Mental Health Department at California Institute of Integral Studies. Additionally, I teach Understanding Anxiety and Depression within the Kaiser Adult Behavioral Health Dept. in Oakland, Ca.
