I have been a psychologist for over thirty years and continue to learn and evolve in my thinking about the nature of people and relationships. I earned both my undergraduate degree and master’s degree at Miami University, and my doctorate at the University of Cincinnati. I work about 30 hours a week in private practice. I have trained as a child and adolescent psychologist, as a couples and family therapist, and as a therapist with adults and the aging. In addition, about eight years ago after the death of my husband I became a paramedic and volunteered in this capacity until retiring in 2015.
In terms of psychology I first learned psychoanalytic style, then behavioral, and more recently cognitive behavioral therapy and trauma treatment. I am convinced of the intimate connection between the mind and the body - and of the richness an evolved spirit adds to these. I enjoy experiencing the journey of patients as they grow, evolve, achieve their potential and find their bliss.
My goal as a psychologist is to help people become more authentic, confident and courageous while expanding gratitude for the bountiful blessing in their lives.
