I have 30+ years experience in the provision of psychotherapy and psychological assessment with adults, adolescents and children. For the past 18 years I have  directed clinical psychology internship training at Belmont Behavioral Hospital and served as adjunct faculty at Widener University, Immaculata University and Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine.  In addition to direct care and clinical supervision, I have lectured extensively on a variety of subjects including working with war affected populations, clinical training and infertility.

I have also specialized in working with war affected populations including refugees and asylees through The Philadelphia Refugee Mental Health Collaborative.  Since 2015 I have  served as a board member at Nationalities Service Center, a local resettlement NGO.
