I began my study of psychology in 1988 at Columbia College in New York City. Since then, I have studied early childhood development, received investment and insurance licenses, and earned my MA in Counseling with an emphasis in Depth Psychology at Pacifica Graduate Institute in Santa Barbara. I have done post-grad continuing education with some of the leaders in the field of attachment work, neuroscience, and couples counseling.

I explored many careers before becoming a therapist — and all of them are part of the patchwork that makes up who I am now.  I do not have this life figured out but I do appreciate and savor the journey.

I saw my first clients in the summer of 2006 and knew immediately that I would focus exclusively on helping people build better relationships. You can feel sure when you step into my office that I will work with you to improve your connection and communication with other humans and that I bring all of my focus and drive to that end.

Why the name Turnstone Counseling? I get that question a lot so I’ve written a bit about it HERE.

Here are some articles I’ve written that will give you a feel for my couples counseling style. You can also subscribe to my monthly newsletter by clicking HERE. I write about money, parenting, divorce, blended families, sex — all the complications that come with being in a relationship!
