Background

Background & Training
My first career was in music. I earned a Masters Degree from the Yale School of Music and a Doctorate in Music from SUNY Stony Brook and played professionally for twenty years. I taught music at the City University of New York and the State University of New York. Then, in order to fulfill a lifelong interest in psychology, I attended the New York University School of Social Work and graduated in 1992. Upon graduation I worked as a psychotherapist at the Brooklyn Psychiatric Centers, the Fifth Avenue Center for Counselling and Psychotherapy, and the Therapy Center in Mt. Kisco, NY. I have been in full-time private practice since 1998.

In 2003 I graduated from the C. G. Jung Institute of New York, a six-year postgraduate psychoanalytic training program through which I was certified as a Jungian analyst. Since then I have served as Director of Training and on the Faculty and Board of Trustees at the Jung Institute. I maintain private practices in Manhattan and Tuckahoe, New York. I have also taught and lectured at the C.G. Jung Foundation of New York, the 92nd Street Y in Manhattan, The Metropolitan Opera,  the Temenos Institute in Westport, Connecticut, the Society for Psychoanalysis and Culture, the Westchester Society for Clinical Social Work, Jung on the Hudson Seminars, The Philadelphia Jungian Professional   Club, The Oregon Friends of Jung,   and other institutions throughout the country.

I am a member of the New York Association for Analytical Psychology and the International Association for Analytical Psychology.
