About Fenella


Before specializing in psychology, Fenella obtained her PhD in Neuroscience from the University of London, England. After spending many years researching the brain, she decided to look at mental health in a different way. Driven by a passion to understand why people do what they do, she left science and entered the psychology field.

In Counseling, Fenella has worked with children, adults, couples and families. She has also given psycho- educational workshops to teachers to help them in the class room setting. Fenella’s passion is the connection she finds when working with others in a one-on-one therapeutic setting. Integrating her science background with psychology, Fenella has a particular interest in trauma and how trauma affects lives. 

Fenella is currently in private practice in Petaluma as a Marriage and Family Therapist MFT # 47275. Her license can be verified at the Board of Behavioral Sciences website: http://www.bbs.ca.gov
