R.N., M.S., M.F.T. (MFC 14255)

JoanAs staff supervisor-trainer and eventually co-director of a family therapy training program for 26 years, I have treated and supervised the treatment of hundreds of couples and families. Most of these clients have reported positive outcomes. In family therapy, I use structural systemic and emotionally focused interventions.

For about 10 years, I have also worked with individuals and families struggling with both acute traumatic stress and PTSD from a variety of experiences. I am skilled in bereavement counseling as well. I have had several advanced training experiences in interventions for trauma.

With a background in both healthcare and psychotherapy, I have significant knowledge of medical illnesses, chronic and life threatening conditions and disability. For many years, I have worked successfully with individuals, couples and families around these issues. I am willing to make home visits in the local area for people who are housebound.

I look forward to serving the Coastside community as I have the Peninsula and Palo Alto area community for the last 16 years.
