I have been working in the mental health field since 1981 and have been a Licensed Psychologist since 1990. Rather restless until I found this path I love, I worked in various settings from factories to offices to music to sales before heading for graduate training in Psychology. I spent my first twenty plus years in the Northeast U.S.(Massachusetts and New York), the next twenty plus years in the Southeast (Florida and Georgia). I have been living in Alaska only since 2000 and am loving it here!
I obtained my Master's degree and Doctorate in Clinical Psychology at Georgia State University. Georgia State had a program known for quality in training psychotherapists. It's primary clinical faculty were known in particular for their work in Experiential, Gestalt, and Humanistic traditions. I completed my Internship at the Veterans Administration Medical Center in Palo Alto California, also the training site for Stanford Medical School Residents. My post-doctoral training year was at the Henry County Counseling Center, a county mental health center in Georgia.
From 1990 to 2000, I worked primarily in private practice in Stockbridge Georgia where I was also active in a private psychiatric hospital and as a consultant to the county mental health center. In 1995, I founded Horizon Center, a well respected group of Psychotherapists and Psychiatrists that still serves that community today.
I am grateful for my wide range of experience in the field. I have found it critically important to have worked with the most seriously mentally ill to those looking more for ways to grow. Each person has enriched me and adds to what I bring to the next.
