I have been a clinical psychologist and a teacher for the past 25 years. I was an adjunct faculty member at the Wright Institute and at Holy Names College where I taught Family Therapy, Couple Therapy, Addiction, and did clinical supervision. I have taught Family Recovery at UC Berkeley Extension since 1999.
I previously worked in general psychiatry and in the addiction program at Kaiser Permanente in Oakland where I worked with adult addicts and their families. Subsequently, I did therapy with teen addicts and their families at Kaiser in Walnut Creek where I helped develop the psycho-educational program for the Northern California region.
