I completed a B.A in classical studies at the University of Chicago with a focus on Latin and Greek poetry. I trained for my M.A. in counseling psychology at the Family Institute at Northwestern University and am certified by the National Board for Certified Counselors. I completed three years of post-graduate supervised work at the Chicago Institute for Psychoanalysis and am now in full time private practice. I am licensed as an L.C.P.C. (Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor).
I am a faculty member in the MA and PhD programs at the Institute for Clinical Social Work and am the assistant director at the Chicago Center for Contemporary Psychotherapy. I am also an advanced candidate in psychoanalytic training at the Chicago Institute for Psychoanalysis. This post-graduate program integrates coursework on theory with intensive clinical training and culminates in certification as a psychoanalyst.
I have published articles in Psychoanalytic Psychology, the Journal of the American Psychoanalytic Association and the Routledge Series Psychoanalysis in a New Key.
