As a first grader, Rita Barone sat in class where a counselor came in and passed around a "feelings" bear and each student was able to share his or her feelings about whatever was going on that week. At recess, Rita found the counselor and asked, "Can I be you when I grow up?". From this early moment in her life, Rita was sure that she wanted to follow the educational path that would make it possible for her to be a safe person for children to share about their feelings and get the support they needed to manage and handle whatever struggles and challenges they faced with confidence, positive coping skills, faith and resilience.
A Bay Area native, Rita attended San Jose State University B.A. Psychology and Child Development (2003), Notre Dame de Namur University M.A. Clinical Psychology (2006), and became a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist in 2011. She has worked in Residential Drug and Alcohol Treatment Facility for youth, Community-Based therapy for youth, and School-Based therapy in Special Education and mainstream elementary, middle and high school settings . Rita believes in the importance of always taking a moment to breathe and be grateful. Rita enjoys cooking, playing with her kids, gardening, and traveling to Sicily to visit family.
