Diversity, Equity & Inclusion (DEI) Director: Nauser Wolfe, LMFT

Nauser took the long road to becoming a therapist. After first getting a BA and MA in linguistics from UC Santa Cruz and then completing a pre-med post-baccalaureate program at SF State, eventually, his interest in communication and health led him to complete an MA in counseling psychology at the California Institute of Integral Studies. Today he works primarily with children and parents in private practice at SF Bay Play Therapy, but he also loves working with adults who see their own personal growth and healing as an integral part of their efforts to make the world a healthier, safer, and more just place to live for all beings. When he's not working, he enjoys reading, spending time outside with his wife and son, and building community. Nauser joined the board of East Bay CAMFT in order to connect with other therapists and to further his growth as a leader and a man of service.
