As of January 2020, I’ve entered my fourth year of graduate- and post-graduate clinical work, trainings and supervision in counseling with awareness practices. And, I became an officially registered Assoc. Marriage & Family Therapist [AMFT#117475] in the state of California.
These past four years included completing my three-year MA degree in Counseling Psychology from CIIS, the California Institute of Integral Studies; my practicum year seeing clients at the Integral Counseling Center (ICC) at Church Street; fall of 2019, and all of 2020 in private practice through the “Center for Mindful Psychotherapy”; and as an on-site and remote adolescent counselor at Design Tech High School in Redwood City, CA.
Before that, I spent one year as a peer phone Counselor and Shift Lead with the San Francisco Warm Line (with MHA-S.F.), and for two years acted as group Co-facilitator for Bayside Marin’s drug-and-alcohol alumni in recovery program annex in San Francisco, CA.
You may also find me visiting my old volunteer post at San Francisco Zen Center’s bookstore (within SFZC’s residential and community Buddhist organization on Page Street in San Francisco), where I still find SF’s wildest selection of Zen philosophers, books about living and dying. and some Old School haiku.
