Psychologist, Counselor, Therapist

Throughout my life, I have always valued autonomy and the opportunity to learn as well as educate. I have found helping individuals and organizations understand and reflect on the dynamics that motivate them is a great precursor to increasing my own self-awareness and understanding diversity.

I have been a psychologist since 1976. As an independent practitioner, I have the freedom
to contract with both individuals and organizations. I work out of my office in New York City and also have opportunities to travel through my consulting work.

Here’s a bit of what we can cover in our PivotPlanet session(s):
• The values of psychology.
• How to assess your interest in psychology.
• How to assess your aptitudes for psychology.
• How to explore those interests.
• How to assess your educational fit.


I have been interested in individual differences and research since high school. Before becoming a doctoral-level psychologist, I worked as a rehabilitation counselor with psychiatric populations and as a counselor in university counseling centers.

My work has allowed me to both practice and teach psychology as well as do executive coaching. I am a fellow in two APA Divisions, an Alfred P. Sloan grantee and a past editor of the Sloan Work-Family Encyclopedia. I have been published in academic journals, served as a reviewer for professional conferences and journals and have extensive academic experience.
