What drew me to this work
When I was young, I was curious about what motivates people to behave the way they do, and I was struck by how different people can be. With time, I made a career transition, finding my way to a kind of work that allows me to engage this curiosity more deeply in the service of helping the people I work with grow and develop more fully.
Before coming to the Bay Area, I lived in Australia, the Midwest. As a child, I grew up in the UK. I have traveled extensively around Europe, the Middle East, Asia and Australia. The people I work with have various racial, religious and cultural backgrounds. I welcome people of all orientations LGBTQ and straight.
I am state-licensed and in good standing with the California Board of Behavioral Sciences. My Marriage and Family Therapist License number is #79269.
I received an M.A. in Counseling Psychology from the Wright Institute in Berkeley. I earned a B.S. in Computer Science from the University of Wisconsin-Madison.
