I earned my BA in Classical Studies from the University of Pennsylvania in 1990, my M.Ed. in School Counseling from the University of Delaware in 1994 and my Psy.D. in Clinical Psychology from Immaculata University in 2003 at which time I joined the department of Graduate Psychology at Immaculata.

My doctoral dissertation for which I was awarded the Philadelphia Society of Psychoanalytic Psychologists Dissertation Award in 2004, explored the role of object relations, as measured by the Rorschach inkblot method, in the formation of a therapeutic alliance with adolescents in partial hospitalization. I completed an APA approved internship in Clinical Psychology at Friends Hospital in Philadelphia where I worked in a psychiatric emergency room performing evaluations and on an acute unit with psychotic patients. At Friends I also completed rotations in geropsychiatry, and general adult psychiatric inpatient care. I completed my post-doctoral training in Modern Psychoanalysis at the Philadelphia School of Psychoanalysis.

My research interests include affect regulation, psychoanalytic psychotherapy, ethics and professional issues, adolescent psychopathology and assessment, personality assessment, history of psychology and group psychotherapy.

As a tenured Associate Professor at Immaculata University I teach courses in Psychoanalysis, Personality Assessment and the History of Psychology. I provide supervision and consultation to other mental health professionals and bussinesses.
