Why I Became a Professional Christian Therapist

I was raised in Oakland in a big Irish-Italian family were relationships and intellectual pursuits where highly valued. I felt God's calling to helping people early on. My supervisor was a former minister who wisely guided me in a becoming therapist with compassion and a thirst for truth. I have a masters in counseling from Cal State Hayward and a doctorate of education from Argosy University, San Francisco Bay Area Campus, in counseling psychology with a self directed emphasis in leadership and organization development. My dissertation was on the relationship between life experience and leadership style.

After licensing as a counselor, I enjoyed working as a clinical director with the Minirth-Meier New Life Clinics West. Working with a diverse patient population in the current New Life Network, I still enjoy the wisdom, professional comradeship, fellowship and training of Drs. David Stoop, Henry Cloud and John Townsend. I welcome the opportunity to lead and supervise doctoral and master’s level interns in counseling and coaching.

While working as a consultant, I have enjoyed working with both large and small organizations. I have consulted for Cal Berkeley’s, Graduate Department of Bioengineering, Cal’s Graduate Department of Public Policy and the San Jose State University, Department of Instructional Design. I have also worked with leaders from such diverse organizations as the U.S. Coast Guard, SC Johnson & Company, Kaiser-Permanente, SpineCare-SOAR, and the East Bay Lutheran Youth Leaders Association. Trained in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) and other helpful forms of coaching that help clients get unstuck, I have helped many leaders get through impasses in their careers.
