Ciao, benvenuti nella mia casa in rete!
Welcome to my home on the World Wide Web!
on April 9th of this year, I took the EPPP, Psychology's Big Licensing Exam,
and found out I passed it a week later! Ce-le-bra-tions ensued!
I am now very close to be licensed (need a few more hrs..)
and very happy about it ..
After completing my postodoctoral program at Humboldt State Universtity's
Counseling and Psychological Services (in beautiful Arcata
in June 2009, I traveled to Fairfield
to immerse myself in the beautiful silence and creativity
that permeate the meditating community, for a much needed period of de-stress and profound rest.
4 awesome months, during which I had wonderful meditations,
slept great, and met a lot of wonderful people.
Finally visited the Center for Brain, Consciousness and Cognition
at Maharishi University. Its director, Dr. Fred Travis had been a great advisor and supporter
during the writing of my doctoral dissertation.
In early October, I decided to come back to California to focus on my professional development.
I drove Vannie and the kitties back to Sacramento.
It was a great adventure: we got stuck on the Rockies,
in Wyoming, by ice and snow, among other things.

And so, here I am , at the begnmning of a brand new professional career,
the licensing exam out of the way (so great) and, finally,
beginning to reap the fruits
of all these years of studying and sacrificing.
I recently joined a new private practice,
focused on holistic health, and I am quite happy about it.
At this point, beside working in clinical practice, I continue teaching
Italian conversation classes
, to those interested,
as well as cooking classes
I also offer consultations in Italian cooking and style to restaurants
as well as to individuals.
As a guest in my web-house, you are welcome to
visit the food sections, sauces
, and vegetarian dishes
I believe in health-oriented cooking, meant to satisfy
both the senses and the soul.
You can also learn more about me

You are welcome to visit the psychology
as well as the poetry, Poesie
, and writings, Scritti
