I am a graduate of Harvard University, where I completed my Doctorate in Education in human development and psychology, and held an internship at McLean Hospital in Belmont, Massachusetts.

I have been trained in a variety of treatment methodologies and have worked with adults and children, treating eating disorders, chemical dependency and compulsive gambling.I also have a great deal of experience in conducting groups for women with post-traumatic stress disorder.

I am a co-author and co-editor of the book, Compulsive Gambling: Theory, Research and Practice (1989).

In addition to 26 years providing therapy, I’ve also served as an adjunct teacher at Argosy University of Psychology in Eagan, Minnesota.
