For the past 10 years, I have worked as the Clinical Director of the Ankur Counseling Center in Kathmandu, Nepal. The Ankur Counseling Center is a therapeutic treatment center for the Nepal Youth Foundation – NYF. Created in 1990, by Olga Murray, then a lawyer in the California Supreme Court, NYF serves children ages two to 17 who are orphaned, neglected, traumatized, abandoned, and those suffering severe attachment issues.
