Class of 1986
I graduated with a double major in Psychology and Women's Studies in 1986. I then went on to study Clinical Psychology at the Wright Institute in Berkeley and received a Masters in 1987 and a Ph.D in 1992. I was licensed in 1994. What a ride.
I currently have a private practice in Oakland CA doing Psychodynamic, Feminist therapy with adolescents and young and older adults. In 2007 I began a new chapter and started doing organizational work-- recognizing my dream as an undergrad of one day providing "therapy to groups." It's yet another way to integrate the feminist teaching and frame.
Please feel free to refer FMST students for info, mentoring, hand holding, cheerleading. I can be contacted at
Thank you for all your amazing and great work over the years.
Warm regards to all,
Diane Cohen, Proud class of '86
