Originally from Woodbury, New York, I received my Bachelor's and Master's degrees from Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, Ohio in the 1970's.
I began my career as a Child Life Worker at Mt. Sinai Hospital in Cleveland in 1972. After moving to Rhode Island in 1976, I worked in the children's unit of RI Hospital for two years, followed by three years in the Barrington, RI Public Schools, and four years at the Cranston, RI Community Mental Health Clinic. I have been in private practice since 1985.
I enjoy working with people of all ages, and greatly appreciate the perspective on human growth and development that comes with such a broad based practice.
