The quotes on this website speak to important aspects of psychotherapy: personal growth, hope, and transformation. As a clinical social worker, my psychotherapy practice is informed by a biopsychosocial model. What does this really mean? The issues involved in personal problems are rarely simple. In fact they are frequently complex and multi-layered. Similarly, solutions require a multi-dimensional approach.

Together, clients and I explore their concerns in a process that develops and supports self-understanding. Through our collaborative relationship, the inner resources of each client are nurtured and intuitive wisdom
is strengthened. As self-esteem grows, authentic personal voice emerges. Problems can then be resolved organically, thus building a range of adaptive coping skills, greater personal satisfaction and healthier,
stronger relationships.

My formal education spans several decades. I received an AB, cum laude, from Bryn Mawr College in 1963, an MSSW from Columbia University School of Social Work in 1968, and a PhD from the University of Georgia School of Social Work in 2005. In my psychotherapy practice of nearly twenty years and as a group leader and director of the Atlanta Center for Overcoming Overeating, my work has focused on eating problems and women's issues. I am also committed to working with men and women who seek fulfillment in their lives and greater satisfaction in both personal and professional relationships.

A conversation is often the best way to determine together whether our collaboration might be useful to you.
I look forward to your phone call.
