About Me

I am an active licensed psychologist in Pennsylvania and provide assessment and treatment in an integrative psychotherapy model that incorporates biofeedback and especially neurofeedback.

I received my undergraduate degree from Vassar College cum laude in anthropology with a minor in psychology. I completed my master's and doctoral work at Bryn Mawr College and my internship year at Hahnemann Medical College and Hospital (now Drexel University Medical School). My license as a psychologist was obtained in 1978.

Research Interests

My research interests include the study of issues facing caregivers and their adolescent and adult children struggling with ASD (Autistic Spectrum Disorder), Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), and the efficacy of neurofeedback treatment as well as peer editing and information literacy in the discipline of psychology.
