Anuradhat (Anu) Singh
Dr Singh graduated from California School of Professional Psychology, Berkeley/Alameda, California in Clinical Psychology in 1996. She also has a Master’s degree in Marriage Family Child Counseling and a Masters degree in Audiology. Given the fact that she has had to balance her work, passion in Indian Classical Music and Ultra-marathons while being a mother to active teenage boys, she is greatly interested in the Berger Institute which addresses the issue of work and family balance.
While working in the Audiology department at Stanford University in 1988, Dr. Singh was confronted time and again with the fact that the patients needed immediate psychological support to cope with the diagnosis of their or their children’s hearing impairments. This motivated her to pursue a degree in MFCC in 1988. After graduating from Santa Clara University, she worked with families and adolescents. Her work with juvenile delinquents, in the Juvenile Hall at the Santa Clara County Jail, convinced her that she needed to further her education in the field of Clinical Psychology. During her final year of her doctorate program she had her first son. The flexible hours she had at her internship, while completing her work on her dissertation, allowed her to balance her time between being at home with her son, a student at the university and a family therapist at her private practice.
Since 1997, after the birth of her second son, Dr Singh has been involved with raising her children, volunteering at their schools and doing community outreach. She is also currently a volunteer at Kaiser Permanente’s “No One Dies Alone” program. Dr Singh offers spiritual and life coaching on a pro bono basis to the community. Dr Singh met with Professor Antecol and Director Bever, in the summer of 2011, and was very impressed with the important work being conducted at the Berger Institute. Her personal experiences in the realm of balancing work and family have convinced her that the Berger Institute is serving an essential need and she is very excited to be a part of it.
