After studying Psychology and Education at the University of California at Santa Cruz, I completed my Master's degree at the University of California at Berkeley.  In Santa Cruz, I worked in a group home for adolescents.  In graduate school I interned at San Francisco General Hospital and The New Bridge Foundation, a substance abuse treatment facility in Berkeley.  After The New Bridge Foundation, I started working as a child psychotherapist for the Lincoln Child Center in Oakland.  While working at the Lincoln Child Center I started my own business serving the Bay Area's recovery community.  I served as the Director of Pacific Coast Recovery for 8 years.  Today I am focusing exclusively on my private practice.
