I was raised in Oakland in a big Irish-Italian family were relationships and intellectual pursuits where highly valued. I have a masters in counseling from Cal State Hayward and a doctorate of education from Argosy University, San Francisco Bay Area Campus, in counseling psychology with a self directed emphasis in leadership and organization development. My dissertation was on the relationship between life experience and leadership style. I am also trained in NLP, EMDR/EMI and clinical hypnosis and use these to help counseling patients heal and executive coaching clients grow.
