My Story

My Academic Story
I attended Wesleyan University in Connecticut, where I studied Spanish literature and art history. After a decade in the work force and on the home front, I returned to graduate school for a master’s degree and post-master's certification in community counseling at the University of Cincinnati. I went on to complete an interdisciplinary doctoral program at the Union Institute and University, also in Cincinnati. Clinical counseling, developmental psychology and feminist theory were my areas of focus. During my doctoral studies, I finished a graduate certificate program in Women’s Studies at Wright State University and an intensive 2-year training in Couples and Family Therapy. Since 2007 I have been participating in ongoing advanced training and consultation in Narrative Therapy with Jill Freedman and Gene Combs at Evanston Family Therapy Center.

I have practiced professionally in Ohio, New Jersey, Illinois and Michigan.  I currently hold active independent clinical counseling licenses in Illinois (#180.006314) and Michigan (#6401014960) and am a Nationally Certified Counselor (#205536).

My Work Story
My clinical training began at Acoria, a private outpatient eating disorder clinic in Cincinnati, Ohio. I continued working there post-graduation for several years. I developed programs and groups, and worked with people of different ages and genders seeking individual, family, couples and group counseling. When our family relocated to New Jersey I started an independent private practice in Summit and Morristown. In 2005 another relocation to the Chicago area allowed me to re-established my practice in Illinois. Currently, I divide my time between the Detroit area of Michigan and Evanston, Illinois. I have cherished the ongoing work with families and individuals who consult with me as well as collaborations with colleagues.

I moved a lot while I was growing up. We lived in eleven different countries on four different continents. I treasure having grown up this way, and the impact it’s had on me. I also treasure the impact deep roots and a large family have had on my husband. Together we have three daughters who inspire and challenge us in wonderful ways.

Some of the things I love are being a student, wandering around art museums and the great outdoors, dance, laughing, and being with family, friends, and our many pets.
