Norman Hering, LMFT

After receiving his Master of Science in Counseling, Marriage and Family Therapy at San Francisco State University, Norman has been a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist since 1994. He went on to have his own Psychotherapy practice while continuing work in the public sector with low-income and under-served children and families for the Fred Finch Youth Center school and community based services. From 2001-2015, Norman oversaw mental health and other programs with organizations such as North Bay Recovery Center, Telecare Corp, East Bay Agency for Children (school-based), and Oakes Children’s Center.

Norman lived overseas from 2015-2017, starting in the Netherlands to pursue licensure as a Psychologist and work on his doctoral dissertation in Clinical and Organization Psychology. Over the next two years, he dedicated his time as a volunteer with the Dutch charity, Aid Caravan to Greece, and worked with refugees in Athens, Greece through Pamperaiki. Norman then served as a Program Director for CAMPFIRE Innovation, a media platform that helps connect, research and showcase Smart Aid projects in the refugee crisis. Now a Marin County resident, Norman is overseeing the mental health services at North Marin Community Services.
