Counseling and Personal Bio

I am a licensed (MFC 36930) through the state of California as a Marriage and Family Therapist.  I am also affiliated with Christian Counseling Center of San Jose.
My counseling experience began in 1982 when I transitioned from the ideal world of Bible College to the very real world of living in a residential treatment home becoming an instant parent (actually a residential counselor) to emotionally disturbed juvenile delinquent boys who held no reservations telling me what they believed I should do and how to do it, concepts no where to be found in the Bible!  I was ready to give notice after only one day of being there, and this after I had made a commitment of one year.  A good friend encouraged me with simple wisdom to give it some time and I ended up living in that home for the next two and a half years.  The first day working there still probably ranks as one of the most difficult days in my entire life!  I soon transferred to another home in the organization as a senior counselor and worked there for another two and a half years.  I could never have imagined how this experience would serve me as does even right now especially working with families and their children and adolescents.  I went on to work in school settings and counseling agencies before settling into private practice in 1995.
I've been married for 20+ years, have a son in Middle School, and a daughter in College. I am a cancer survivor of 10+ years.
