I chose nursing as my life’s work because I care deeply about people and am endlessly fascinated with the human spirit. After graduating Hunter College in 1977, I attended Hunter Graduate School and was subsequently inducted into the nursing honor society, Sigma Theta Tau.

I have experience working with patients of all ages, spanning the spectrum of life events. It has been my privilege to help new mothers grappling with postpartum depression and to counsel patients and their families at the end of life. My focus for the past 15 years has been in psychiatry, where I have worked in a variety of clinical settings and in private practice. I have worked with children, high-risk teens, adults and the elderly treating depression, bipolar disorder, ADHD, OCD, PTSD and sleeping and eating disorders among other conditions. Post-graduate training I've pursued includes: cognitive behavioral therapy, motivational interviewing, family interventions, nutritional counseling, eating disorders, EMDR, parent counseling and I was a Jungian analysand for 10 years. 

It is my belief that I must walk the talk I teach in order to be a healing presence. I strive to maintain balance in my personal life, incorporating yoga, mindfulness meditation and a healthy life style day-today.  Humor is another very important part of my own narrative.

A married empty-nester and proud grandmother of three beautiful girls, family and community are central to my life. I also enjoy various extra-curricular activities.  My interests include hiking, gardening, swimming, travel, movies, plays, cooking (and eating) good food and reading voraciously. I live my life joyfully, playfully and fully present.

The blog is an open forum for promoting emotional and physical well-being. I offer tips to encourage emotional wellness, share articles and post links in the field of Integrative Psychiatry.

Join the conversation! I look forward to reading comments and fostering dialogue among readers.

Thank you for your unique combination of keen and intelligent insights and genuine compassion. You have given me the words and framework to understand my feelings, beliefs and misconceptions. I know that without your support I would not have been able to begin the process of healing after my traumatic loss.
