Some of my most valuable experience came from the 6 years that I spent working in residential treatment centers for adolescents. I did everything with the teens, from cooking for them, going hiking and playing basketball to doing individual, family and group therapy with them. They taught me some amazing lessons about strength and courage in the face of adversity and how to be the kind of therapist that they really needed.
I am currently serving on the board of directors for Social Advocates for Youth, a wonderful non-profit agency that provides jobs, counseling & housing for homeless and transitional youth in Sonoma County. This opportunity allows me to have more impact and help youth and families beyond my private practice work.
