About Me

I was a journalist for ten years when I discovered my love for psychology and returned to school to earn my doctorate. I am married and have two adult sons. I enjoy travelling, concerts of all sorts, theatre, movies and cooking. Hikes, yoga and meditation center me.

Education & Experience

I studied journalism and economics at Stanford University and became a reporter. I returned to school and earned a PHD at the University of Tulsa. I have worked at the VA in Houston, the Menninger Clinic and in private practice. I have started an eating disorder PHD, a trauma IOP and am developing workshops for families of patients with eating disorders.
