I have taught and worked in a variety of settings and have a broad range of experience with children, adults, and families. These settings include public and private schools, community clinics, day treatment facilities, and university settings. I have had experience and enjoy working with people from a variety of different racial and ethnic backgrounds. In addition, I strive to constantly improve my work through consultation, ongoing training, and self-understanding.

In addition, I have had formal training in preschool mental health consultation as well as additional educational instruction in child psychotherapy through the San Francisco Center for Psychoanalysis and in group psychotherapy through the Northern California Group Psychotherapy Society and the American Group Psychotherapy Society.
