I am a seasoned clinician with over 17 years of clinical experience in non-profit, juvenile detention, public health, medical, and private practice settings. For more information about my training and approach, please see my About Dr. Machado page.
In addition to my extensive clinical experience, I bring over ten years of experience serving as adjunct and core faculty in a number of master’s and doctoral level counseling, clinical social work, and clinical psychology programs in the greater Bay Area. My current academic appointment is as an Associate Professor of Clinical Mental Health Counseling at Sonoma State University, where I teach both didactic, clinical skill development, and fieldwork courses.
In these academic settings, as well as in my private practice, I have supervised marriage and family therapy trainees/associates, professional clinical counselor trainees, and post-doctoral psychological associates. I have also provided consultation to other licensed clinicians who have sought support around particularly challenging client issues.
