Teaching & Training


For over twenty years, my work has included consultation, supervision, teaching & training. I supervise students in their traineeships for their Master’s programs and as post graduate Associates/Interns. I love to shepherd young therapists into their therapy careers and also take associate/interns into my private practice.

One of my other favorite things to do is to present/teach in private settings. I teach on trauma and the creative process, addictions and Co-Occurring disorders. I have presented for the Northern California Art Therapy Association, Walden House, the former Haight Ashbury Free Clinics, Napa State Hospital, Sunset Mental Health Clinic, Volunteer Legal Services Program of the Bar Association of San Francisco, the Mental Health Symposium (Promoting Mental Health in our Schools) sponsored by San Francisco State University and KQED, Bay Area Addiction Research & Treatment, Inc. (BAART) and the Hemophilia Foundation of Northern California.

Besides private trainings, I taught at City College of San Francisco for many years, as well as the California Institute of Integral Studies and John F. Kennedy University.

"Mena is an excellent clinical supervisor. She is knowledgeable and so incredibly supportive and encouraging at the same time. I have learned strong clinical skills from her and most importantly through her gentle, and yet steady, relational support, I became aware of the areas in which I needed to strengthen my boundaries with clients.


Her supervision approach, her openness to acknowledge my creative ideas, allowed me to feel comfortable and to speak freely and openly. She generously shares her wisdom with warmth and caring that encourages me to grow both professionally and personally.  I’ve loved the many ways she challenged me to think in directions that I have yet had an opportunity to explore.

If you’re looking for an amazing supervisor and mentor, Mena is the one."--Nilay Martin AMFT#112311
