doors opening, doors closing

December 16th, 2014

I’ve been fortunate enough to mentor a new generation of masters-level therapists through the years, and recently I had the joy of sharing a holiday lunch with 5 of my interns–past, present and future. What a fun experience to be “breaking bread” with all of them at one table as it felt like my professional family–albeit a fairly functional one.

One of my former interns, Annabel Raymond recently received her license in marriage and family therapy which is a poignant transition as she will no longer be an official part of my practice but instead a colleague and suitemate as she has chosen to remain in our office suite. As Annabel explores new territory, I would like to welcome Jenny Williams who has filled the vacant position and will be seeing clients beginning in January. Jenny comes to my practice after completing her MSW at UCLA and having worked at Kaiser Permanente Outpatient Psychiatry, Didi Hirsch Mental Health as well as a tremendous amount of life experience. It’s truly my privilege to supervise interns because they “keep me on my clinical toes” and exemplify a brand-new chapter in the field.
