Aviva Wilcox is a licensed clinical psychologist and school psychologist with experience in college counseling, primary care behavioral health, school-based work, teaching and supervision. Currently, Aviva is a Distinguished Professor of Clinical Supervision at Palo Alto University. Prior to her faculty position, Aviva worked as the Assistant Vice President of Counseling, Health and Wellness at Mills College in Oakland, California, where she was also the Director of Counseling and Psychological Services and Training Director. Aviva identifies as an educator committed to anti-racist practice with a focus on engaging other white people in disrupting systems of oppression.
Prior to becoming a StirFry Seminars facilitator, Aviva completed two years of study through the Certification Program and the Internship. Part of why Aviva trained and works at StirFry Seminars is to be engaged in facilitation that is experiential and relational, rather than instructional and didactic. Aviva’s philosophy and approach to facilitation parallels the work she engages in as a therapist — people learn, heal, and grow when they can truly see and be seen by others. The art of mindful facilitation is to be a conduit to that process.
Aviva Wilcox is a graduate of the StirFry Mindful Facilitation Certification and Internship Training Program.
