I have over 25 years experience in both the court system, special education system and the practice of psychotherapy. My career started as a Counselor and later Co-Director of the Victim/Witness Assistance Program of the District Attorney’s office in Western Massachusetts. In that role I helped prepare hundreds of witnesses for testifying in court.
Later, as a member of the Youth Team of San Mateo County, I gained expertise in the school system and special education process, while also providing therapy in Spanish and English to children, teens, couples and families.
I am a trained mediator and collaborative divorce coach, with experience in co-parent counseling and parenting plans. My focus is on reconciling issues through collaborative participation in a positive manner. I help clients find ways to work together with a cordial and peaceful approach, especially when children are involved.
