Panelist at the 2017 Teen Wellness Conference
Pronouns: she, her, hers
I was thrilled to join Menlo’s team in 2002. I am currently thoroughly involved in the mental health counseling, psychological support services and various parent and student programs at Menlo. In addition, I teach a portion of the freshman seminar on Human Behavior. My goal with the seminar is to begin creating a relationship with each and every freshman as they enter their four-year life as a high school student, as well as engaging in important and meaningful topics surrounding current adolescent experiences.
Upon receiving my BA from UC Berkeley and my Master’s in Clinical Psychology from John F. Kennedy University, I did clinical work in several communities, resource centers and school systems, working with students from elementary stages to high school, college and post-college adulthood. In the most recent professional period before Menlo School, I immersed myself in a private psychotherapy practice in Menlo Park.
My time detached from Menlo is filled with active outdoor time with family and friends, as well as an energized, meaningful family life with my husband Tito and our daughter and son.
