I have a Master’s degree in Social Welfare from the University of California at Berkeley.
I’ve been licensed since 1987, and in private practice as a psychotherapist since 1992, concurrently with holding a variety of positions in the Employee Assistance Program field (counselor, trainer, account manager, clinical supervisor, program director, and external consultant).
I have worked in small companies, large corporations, hospitals, universities, and community mental health centers.
My business experience includes being laid off, fired, and as a manager, having to terminate others’ employment.
I taught continuing education for attorneys on stress and substance abuse for fifteen years.
I’ve been studying and teaching mindfulness-based therapeutic interventions since 2009.
