I have over thirty years' experience as a clinical social worker and psychologist. My doctorate in clinical psychology was awarded by Fielding’s graduate program, which is fully approved by the American Psychological Association. I have learned a great deal from numerous supervisors, mentors, and teachers as well as from the many people I have worked with in my career.
