I graduated from Smith College School for Social Work in 1996 with a Masters in Clinical Social Work. Smith College provided an excellent graduate education in psychodynamic psychotherapy for me to build upon over the last 24 years. I entered into full-time private practice in 2000. Since that time I have continually engaged in a variety educational pursuits to deepen my clinical knowledge of individual/couples therapy and to increase my enjoyment of my work. In 2010, I completed a two year postgraduate program in the Psychodynamic Therapy Program through the Denver Institute for Psychoanalysis. In 2020, I completed the four year psychoanalytic training program through the Denver Institute of Psychoanalysis which enables me to work intensively with patients to make lasting changes. Psychoanalysis is an incredible tool that requires a huge commitment for patient and therapist alike, but allows for deep change like no other treatment modality I have ever experienced.
