I was trained as a School Psychologist at the University of Pennsylvania, Graduate School of Education but had always been intrigued by the workings of the mind – how does a person come to be? What motivates us? What drives us? While working in a suburban school district, I decided to pursue Psychoanalytic Training, thinking I’d rather be the therapist school districts refer to, than be the one doing the referring. I completed Adult and Child Psychoanalytic Training at the Psychoanalytic Center of Philadelphia in in 2005. Since then I have maintained a private practice in Philadelphia working with children, adolescents, adults and families always through a reflective, insight oriented and psychodynamic lens. In addition I have served as a consultant on Boards of Directors for the Green Tree School, Carson Valley School and Congregation Rodeph Shalom in Philadelphia.
