Professionals I refer to

If it takes a village to raise a child, it takes a “tribe” of wise and skillful professionals, mentors, and peers to help support us and those we serve.

Below is contact information for local professionals I rely on for their skill, wisdom, and good hearts. May they be useful resources to you. (If any of the contact information is out of date, please let me know: 415-665-7765 or e-mail me through this website)
