I am originally from Glencoe, IL, and attended New Trier High School in Winnetka, IL. I earned a Bachelor’s degree in Sociology, a Master in Liberal Studies, and a Master of Arts in Counseling at Bradley University, in Peoria, IL.
My additional education/training includes:
— Institute for Meditation and Psychotherapy Certificate Program, Barre, MA
— Adult Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy Program, Chicago Psychoanalytic Institute, Chicago, IL
— Training in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR).
I have an enduring interest in the relationship between western psychology, mindfulness, and psychological healing and growth. For many years I’ve kept a daily meditation practice and attend retreats around the country on a regular basis.
In my spare time I can be found attending meditation retreats, sailing, swimming, acting, or sauntering through the woods with my dog Gracie.
