Faye Valentine, Chief Morale Officer. After surviving her first several years of life as a stray on the mean streets of Santa Cruz, Faye was adopted by John through the local Humane Society. Greeting guests, sitting on laps, and looking cute are just a few of the many ways she keeps spirits up. Faye has over 4 years of experience in morale enhancement therapy. When she's not sleeping, Faye enjoys walks, making new friends, and terrorizing gophers.




Victor Yalom, PhD, Founder & CEO. In addition to scouting out new video talent and creating cartoons for Psychotherapy.net, Victor maintains a part-time practice as a psychologist in San Francisco, doing individual, group and couples therapy. His website is SFpsychologist.com.





 
 Marie-Helene Yalom, Chief Operating Officer.  With a PhD in physics from University of Paris VI and an MBA from Northwestern University, Marie-Helene has over 20 years experience in corporate strategy, marketing and project management, primarily in technology related industries. She is using her diverse background to serve as COO for Psychotherapy.net—which in a small business such as ours means she has her hands in many pots, including advertising, art direction, website development, and production of videos. 



 
John Welch, Video Producer. John first became interested in video production at the impressionable age of 10, making films with his friends mostly about action figures killing one another. Later John became schooled in film production and abandoned his childhood roots in the Midwest for Los Angeles. He did video editing and post-production for a wide variety of clients: Sony Pictures, Disney Interactive, Fine Living Network, BET and Warner Bros. Records to name a few. LA, as it turns out, isn't for everyone, including, but not limited to, John. He now lives the secluded life of a hermit in the penthouse suite of the Transamerica Pyramid in San Francisco, sleeping little and creating videos for Psychotherapy.net. His pet puma is named Windsor.





Jill Brown, MS, Director of Sales/Professional Liaison. Jill is a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, and Professional Clinical Counselor in California. She has over 12 years experience working with adults, couples, families, children, and adolescents in clinic-based and school-based settings. Jill helped to expand and administer an adolescent suicide and mental wellness screening program (formerly known as TeenScreen) throughout Marin County. As the Director of Sales and Professional Liaison, she has the opportunity to work directly with customers, utilize her knowledge and skills in counseling and psychotherapy, and pull from her varied background in technology, website development, project management, marketing, and sales.





Shelley Goodman, Art Director.
Shelley is our resident "can do" woman! From graphic design, art direction and customer service to dabbling in video editing and animation, Shelley keeps us sane and looking good. She is also a cyclist and spin instructor and enjoys spending time with her family, exploring the great outdoors, and knitting sweaters for her chihuahua, Mia (see below.)






Mia, Head of Security.
Mia was rescued from the streets of Tijuana where (we assume) she was working as an enforcer for a local cartel. Now in the Bay Area, she strikes fear in the hearts of the deliverymen and ne'er-do-wells of Marin County. While not patrolling the Psychotherapy.net campus, she can be found chasing her tail and modeling knitwear.







Greg Arnold, MA, LMHCA, Account Manager, resides in Bellingham, WA, so he’s basically Canadian. He holds an MA in Counseling Psychology, is completing his doctoral degree, and puts the wisdom he's gained from hours of watching Psychotherapy.net videos to use providing couples, individuals, and families, with person-centered, humanistic psychotherapy in Bellingham. As Account Manager at Psychotherapy.net, Greg helps universities and community mental health organizations integrate the inspiring work of our expert therapists-on-video into the training and professional development of students and career professionals alike.





Wendy Jenkins, Operations Manager. You may find yourself fabricating customer service questions to get a chance to speak with our terribly charming Wendy Jenkins. Born and raised in Omagh (silent “gh”), Northern Ireland, she studied law “abroad” in England before moving with her family to the States 8 years ago. Wendy brings a wealth of business acumen from her years working with top notch corporations, and in addition to keeping the staff wildlings of psychotherapy.net on task, she does marketing, sales and skunk management. Known for her “secretary circa 1970s” aesthetic, in her free time Wendy likes to hang out with her teenage children (while they still let her), go to gigs, hike and explore vintage clothing stores.

A native of the Pacific Northwest, Genevieve received her BM in vocal performance at Whitman College in Walla Walla, WA. She went on to study at the Boston Conservatory of Music, and received her MM in vocal performance from Western Washington University. Genevieve currently lives in Washington with her husband (see Greg, above) and much loved gaggle of pets.
