About Me

I am a life coach with a doctorate in clinical psychology who has been in private practice for 40 years. Prior to this career, I was a high school teacher and developed a strong understanding and appreciation of the struggles and joys of teaching and learning.

My graduate training was at Merrill-Palmer Institute where I achieved an MA in Clinical Psychology (license number 6301003352).  I went on to Center For Humanistic Studies and Union Institute for an incredibly meaningful Ph.D.  It deepened an intense concern and commitment to children, adolescents, adults and families.
