I earned my doctorate in Clinical Psychology from The Pennsylvania State University, ranked among the top 10 graduate clinical psychology programs in the United States.

I completed a pre-doctoral internship and later a fellowship at Pennsylvania Hospital in Philadelphia that included training with individuals, couples, and children in both hospital and outpatient clinical settings.

My postdoctoral training in the Psychiatry Department of the University of Pennsylvania included specialized training in depression and bipolar disorder.  At Pennsylvania Hospital, I also facilitated parent-infant groups in the Child and Parent Center and supervised pre-doctoral interns.
