My history with treating mental health dates back to 1982 when I earned a master’s degree specializing in the treatment and practice of marriage and family therapy. Over the next 30 years, I worked for the state of Connecticut’s Department of Mental Health and Addiction Services, specializing in individual psychotherapy. For over 15 years, I was an adjunct faculty member at Southern Connecticut State University, teaching in the graduate department for marriage and family therapists. I was also a member/supervisor with the American Association for Marriage and Family Therapists.
After practicing for 40 years, I joined HCAI. Working in the LBGTQ+ community has always been a dream job for me that finally came to fruition when I joined the staff 2.5 years ago. Depending on your specific needs or goals, I have developed strategies that can be implemented from a single consultation to the more standard weekly therapy.
When I’m not working, I’m a passionate gardener, an art collector, and a lover of Labrador Retrievers.
