After growing up in Berkeley, I went to Smith College and earned an MSW in 1988. I completed a Post-Masters Fellowship and a two year training in Marriage & Family Therapy at The Menninger Clinic, in Topeka Kansas; I worked on several in-patient and out-patient clinics at Menninger. I taught graduate level courses at the University of Kansas in Clinical Social Work. After returning to the Bay Area in 1997, I joined AFTNC because of my passion for family therapy. I enjoy working with children and families, and working in school and in-home settings. I currently have a private practice in Berkeley and focus on a range of problems using mostly Narrative Therapy and EMDR. I have a wonderful teenage daughter.
