OUR STAFF

Director of Becoming Real Treatment Center

Susan Martin, LMFT has a B.S. in Nutrition Science, M.A. in Exercise Physiology and Sports Medicine, and an M.A. in Counseling Psychology.

She has practiced psychodynamic psychotherapy for over 20 years and from the beginning worked with anorexia, bulimia and compulsive-overeaters. Over time she developed a particular concern for the normal everyday chronic overeater and felt they needed and deserved a Treatment Center just for their issues and concerns. She brings a love for the work, a depth of seeing beneath the surface of a food addiction, and an ability to laugh and play within the group setting.

Co-Director of Becoming Real Treatment Center

Teri Quatman, Psychologist has a Ph.D. in Psychology from Stanford University and is a Professor in Counseling Psychology at Santa Clara University.

She has practiced psychodynamic psychotherapy for over 20 years and from the beginning had a particular interest in the psychological development of women within our culture. She brings a particular capacity to listen into the silence and articulate what might otherwise go unnoticed. Without words, she has a capacity to inspire women to dig deep, and bring their best to life's challenges.

Janet Sims, LMFT has an M.A. in Counseling Psychology from Santa Clara University.

She has practiced psychodynamic psychotherapy for six years and has worked with a broad spectrum of clients. She comes to the world of psychotherapy after spending the first half of her professional life working in the arts, education and human rights field. Creativity, curiosity and social justice are core values for her that she brings into her work with clients in her private practice. She also brings a level of humor that promotes a letting go of taking one's self too seriously, and also helps open up one's heart.
