Biography

PhotoBorn and raised in New Haven, I received my starter education from the Hopkins School, my liberal arts undergraduate education from Connecticut College and, eventually, my professional graduate education from the School for Social Work at Smith College.  Before starting at Smith College, I had a twelve-year love affair with the professional theatre (some would call it my first career) that started and ended at the Long Wharf Theatre in New Haven with many stops in between.

After graduate school,  I worked for several years for the Department of Psychiatry at the Yale University Medical School, providing individual, family and group psychotherapies.  Eventually I was appointed (part-time) to the clinical faculty of the Department of Psychiatry, teaching and supervising therapists-in-training.  I moved into my private practice in 1989, first in New Haven and now in Guilford.

Some of the values that guide me:

Helping.
Honesty.
Dependability.
Creativity.
Balance.
Hearing the deeper meaning.
Knowing when to keep quiet.
Knowing when to stand firm .
Giving my all.
Learning.
Teaching.
