I am a licensed psychologist , Licensed Clinical Social Worker, and a Board Certified Diplomate in Counseling Psychology. I received a Ph.D. from the University of Maryland in 1978, and an MSW from the University of Maryland in 1975.


With over 30 years of experience in the Washington ,and now New York  community, conducting individual, couples, group, and family therapy, I am a passionate psychologist. I seek to help others get past personal challenges and reach their full potential. Not only do I look at what an individual brings to therapy to work on, but I highly consider the connection I have with that individual to best facilitate self growth. 


In my spare time, I enjoy walking, spending time with my dog, discovering cities, admiring art,theater, listening to music, and tasting good food - all of which have given me a healthy perspective on life. 

I look forward to engaging with you!
