I received a Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology from Indiana University and am Board Certified in Clinical Psychology (American Board of Professional Psychology). I have been in private practice for over 30 years, specializing in treating the effects of stress and trauma, serious and chronic illnesses, and loss and bereavement.
Until 2021 I also was a full-time faculty member in Fordham University’s Psychology Department, providing clinical supervision to graduate students, and teaching a range of courses including Psychotherapy Theories, Personality Theories and Research, Psychopathology, and Psychology and Human Values. My recent research projects include examinations of resilient adjustment in the personal narratives of people with cancer and cancer survivors. My academic credentials can be seen here. I am an active member of the American Psychological Association, the Stress, Trauma, Anxiety, and Resilience Society, and the Westchester Psychological Association.
