   My schooling includes completion of a Masters degree in Counseling Psychology from Santa Clara University. In my previous career I was an elementary school teacher and I bring to my work decades of school-based experience in the classroom and as Special Education resource specialist. As a school-based counselor, I supported learners in a variety of schools in the Bay area at the elementary,  middle and high school levels. During my internship I was able to complete the Infant and Early Childhood Mental Health Certificate through Santa Clara County. Recently ​I completed my Sandplay Practitioner qualifications and am pleased to be able to offer Sandplay as a modality for healing.

    My personal experience in parenting  has enhanced my sensitivity of the challenges in families who have children with special needs.
