Education: BS from Fairfield University in Psychology
MA from Binghamton University in Clinical Psychology
PhD from Binghamton University in Clinical Psychology
Degree: PhD in Clinical Psychology
Experience: I have worked in a variety of clinical settings over my career including two VA hospitals, a community mental health center, and private practice. I am also a professor – I teach and train masters level therapists.
I am a cognitive behavioral therapist and primarily utilize a treatment called Acceptance and Commitment Therapy. My main goal in therapy is to help people develop the kind of life they want life – not just to reduce their symptoms. I am happy to talk about the treatment I provide and what you can expect from therapy before you make an appointment. I like to be physically active, and to try new things so I learned how to surf in the last couple of years. I also love to spend time in nature.
