With more than 25 years of experience I enjoy working with people who are interested in better understanding the reasons for the problems and symptoms which are limiting their fulfillment in life. After earning my doctorate I worked in a community mental health center, taught graduate school, and opened a private practice in Wilmette. I have published and presented articles in national journals and conferences on the psychology of women, transference/countertransference,and therapeutic technique. I am very interested in the creative process, the arts, the interface of culture and psychology. In my free time I write poetry, enjoy walking my dog in the forest, cooking, reading novels, and outdoor activities such as hiking and kayaking.

I believe that each individual is unique and that therapy/analysis works best when we can develop a trusting relationship where both patient and therapist can explore the emotional experience of the patient. Together we can begin to understand the sources of problems, symptoms, and roadblocks which are interfering in more comfortable and gratifying functioning in love, work, interpersonal relationships, and the creative process. My approach is essentially a developmental one, rather than theory bound. I am flexible in using what works for each person to deepen understanding and to facilitate growth in both psychotherapy and psychoanalysis.
