San Francisco Bay area, CA, United States
I am a professional working the San Francisco and the greater Bay Area. The following describes my professional work in four arenas. I am an associate professor in the Counseling Psychology Department of the University of San Francisco. My work there involves teaching and training graduate students who wish to become licensed marriage, family, child therapists or credentialed school counselors.
I am trained as a national facilitator of Courage to Teach, Lead, Serve and Circles of Trust programs.
I continue to maintain a limited private counseling practice as a Marriage, Family Therapist (MFT#4293).
I am engaged in volunteer social justice and community service work as part of my personal goal of helping to make the world a better and more just place for all. My volunteer and service work is consistent with the mission of the University of San Francisco and is consistent with both Courage and Renewal philosophy as well as my own personal beliefs. The main part of my work has been in the Yucatan of Mexico. I am actively involved in a Project Yucatan, a project designed to give poor rural youth opportunity to receive a high school education and life skills training, while possibly considering higher education in their future. We are at a decade of work with this project. I have also worked in the northeast corridor of India, and well as with organizations at home that are consistent with my personal beliefs.
