I received my Masters in Counseling in 1972 from New York University. The focus of my therapeutic perspective is to encourage clients to embrace their strengths and dreams, have compassion for, and understanding of how they were hurt and to re-envision and re-create their lives to reflect their personal ambitions.

My work experience has involved individuals from the inner cities to rural settings, health, mental health, prison facilities, youth programs, crisis work and private practice. My extensive diversity training combined with my work experience has taught me about the complex reactions and responses we have to feeling isolated from the mainstream.

My work with adults centers around life transitions, trauma, anxiety and depression, loss, and anger management. I work with a trauma model which involves creating safety in the present, reflection on historic influences and developing new perspectives. My training includes EMDR, Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing, studies with the Gestalt Institute of the Berkshires, as well as continuous workshops to enhance my understanding and skills.

My office is on a bus route, is on the second floor but arrangements can be made to accommodate clients who need a handicapped accessible space.
