Personal Statement
Working as a psychoanalyst, to me, is challenging, compelling, and collegial. The learning never stops. In the community at BGSP and in the larger clinical community, I enjoy feeling inspired, and at times incited, to continue growing and developing as a clinician.

My current work includes: Private practice with adults, adolescents and children; BGSP Adjunct Faculty member; Academic Advisor to Level A students; Training Analyst in-training; Co-Leader for School-based Internships; applicant for a LMHC; ABD PsyaD candidate at BGSP. School therapist in Boston Public Schools with inner city children.

● Ethical considerations when working with children.
● When the analyst is sick or dying: ethical considerations.
● The unconscious role of meditation in the psyche of the Buddhist meditator
● Primitive states, negativity and somatization, loss and mourning
