After receiving my graduate degree in clinical psychology from Goddard College in 1977, I moved to Northampton, MA where I co-founded CIRCA Psychotherapy Associates for Women. I then completed a five year post-graduate program in body-centered Gestalt Therapy from the Hartford Family Institute.

For my certification in Imago Relationship Therapy, I trained with Maya Kollman, one of only five Imago Therapy master trainers in the country, and continue to assist her during her Imago Couples Weekends.

Following that, I spent five years studying with Martha Stark, MD, a distinguished psychoanalyst in the field of contemporary relational psychoanalytic psychotherapy, who remains as a clinical consultant to my work.

I completed the training program in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) in 2002 and have extensively trained in Somatic Experiencing and Internal Family Systems.
