Personal Statement

My undergraduate degree in psychology and my master’s degree in counseling first led me to positions in the mental health field. I then “crossed over” into the business world where I worked for many years as a marketing executive in the high tech industry. My desire to deepen my understanding of the underlying motivation of human behavior, including my own, led me to analysis and then to BGSP to earn my doctorate. Studying Modern Psychoanalysis has been satisfying both intellectually and emotionally.

I enjoy seeing patients in my private practice and working with students in a variety of capacities. I am the Vice President of Strategy, as well as a member of the faculty.
