Professional Background

I've had the pleasure of working with individuals, couples, families, and groups in private practice since 1995. With a degree in mathematics from Vanderbilt University and 12 years of data processing experience before completing my Masters in Social Work at New York University, I bring strong analytical skills to the practice of cognitive therapy.

To balance this rational approach, I have extensively trained in the most effective experiential modalities I could find, including Holotropic Breathwork™, Internal Family Systems (IFS), Core Energetics, EMDR, Breath Therapy, and hypnotherapy.

As I deepened my grounding in three of these approaches, I began teaching them to other practitioners in the training programs for Core Energetics, Integral Breath Therapy, and Internal Family Systems.
