Most of the senior staff at BTI have worked together since the clinic opened its doors over forty-five years ago. We share perspectives regularly in small group consultation seminars and at weekly staff meetings, where staff members, interns and visiting colleagues take turns making educational presentations.

This long-term association reflects our commitment to helping each other develop professionally, and to making superior mental health services available to the Bay Area community.
