I earned my Master’s Degree in Social Work with a specialization in Mental Health Treatment at The Jane Addams College of Social Work at the University of Illinois at Chicago. As a long-time affiliate of the Jean Baker Miller Training Institute (JBMTI) at the Wellesley Centers for Women at Wellesley College, I completed an advanced practitioner program and was a contributing author to How Connections Heal: Stories from Relational-Cultural Theory. I have written for the eConnections Newsletter and designed workshops and seminars on the clinical application of Relational-Cultural Theory (RCT). I’m a founding member of the Consortium of Relational Cultural Theory Practitioners.
I am a great believer in life-long learning and whether I’m in the role of student, teacher or psychotherapist, discovering new and better ways to help people to thrive is my life’s mission. I have a general practice and have successfully worked with a variety of issues with more than 30 years experience inspiring people to succeed and flourish. I understand human development, the effects of loss, and the process of change and I base my therapeutic approach on several well-proven, results-oriented, research-based theories. Whether you have been in therapy before, or you are seeking therapy for the first time, I know how difficult it can be to find the right therapist. To get an idea of what it’s like to work with me, you can take a look at references from some of my colleagues. To schedule a first meeting to discuss your particular circumstances and your specific goals, please call or send me an email.
