A BIT ABOUT ME
I practiced clinical psychology for over thirty years in the greater Baltimore area. In my practice I provided individual therapy and psychoeducational assessments to children, adolescents, and young adults as well as family and marital therapy. I obtained a Ph.D. from the University of Virginia followed by an internship in Pediatric Psychology and a Fellowship in Adolescent Medicine at the University of Maryland Medical School.
I continue to serve as chief facilitator and consultant to a multi-year, multi-specialty community engagement project with Johns Hopkins School of Public Health and Carnegie Mellon University around allocation of scarce medical resources during a disaster.
I live in Baltimore with my husband of over four decades. We have three married children and two grandchildren.
In addition to writing and time with family, I am an oil painter. My favorite subjects are landscapes and expressive portraits of children. I keep very active with regular swimming, hiking, biking, yoga, and Pilates. When the opportunity presents itself, I also enjoy cross country skiing, kayaking, and travel. When it's time to kick back and relax, I enjoy reading and knitting. I have recently retired from my clinical practice and am enjoying volunteer work that combines my love of children and teens with art.
