In addition to direct clinical practice, I provide consultation to clinicians, institutions, and agencies. I develop and present trainings/educational workshops on issues related to gender, body, eating disorders, and sexuality at educational institutions, medical centers, and non-profits.
Committed to both macro and micro levels of change, I collaborate with other clinicians through: case consultation groups, in-service trainings, structured workshops, and program development. In 2009, I founded Synergy, a multi-disciplinary Bay Area peer consultation group. Addtionally, I am a member of the Steering Committee of the Coalition for Clinical Social Work (CCSW). Through CCSW, I act as a mentor to social work clinicians (pre-licensed and licensed) and am active in efforts to engage and collaborate with early career social workers. I have a great interest in the development and preservation of a social work identity, as well as the intricacies of integrating psychoanalytic thinking and social work practice in agency and community settings.
I have served as an Alumni Admissions Interviewer at Middlebury College since 2002, and through the College's Alumini Career Network, am actively involved in informal mentorship of undergraduate students considering graduate education and employment in the fields of psychology and social work. I am interested in the complexitiies of both the development of a career in mental health, and how one establishes a professional identity within the field.
