Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
As a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist for over 40 years I have had the pleasure working in many counseling domains, including community based counseling agencies, private practice, and residential treatment. My last 7 years of working in residential treatment were spent working and living in Italy. Those years in Italy advanced my understanding and abilities to value, nurture, and strengthen the family unit. Upon returning to the United States I started working in community agencies and then directed a program that provided counseling services to students with emotional and behavioral difficulties. For the last 10 years I have solely concentrated on my private practice in Santa Rosa, CA where I provide counseling services to families, couples, individuals, and consultation and supervision to therapists and interns. In addition to my psychotherapy practice I conduct presentations to professionals and nonprofessionals. I am a relation-based therapist holding certificates in Dyadic Developmental Psychology (DDP) and I have advance training in Emotionally Focused Therapy for Couples (EFT).
