My introduction to the world of work in psychology provided opportunities for my own professional growth during the ten years I was employed as a staff psychologist at Pennsylvania Hospital before entering full-time private practice. I feel so fortunate to have chosen & pursued a career that I still love after working in it for over 30 years. It has been a privilege to have witnessed the growth of so many individuals who let me into their lives & worked hard to identify & make desired, positive change. I don't think I will ever tire of reading & ongoing education to keep abreast of the latest research & developments in clinical practice. Life is a journey for all of us, therapist & client alike. As always,I hope that individuals will show respect for each other, hold themselves in high self esteem, promote healthy families, productive adults, decrease stress, & promote peace in the world.
