About Me

I was born in Newton, Massachusetts and went to Newton North High School (go Tigers!).  I got my B.A. in Psychology (summa cum laude) at Bates College (go Bobcats!), where I also minored in Theatre.  I got my M.S. in Clinical Psychology and my Ph.D. in Clinical and Personality Psychology at Northwestern University (go Wildcats!).  I completed my APA-Approved Pre-Doctoral Internship (like a residency) at the Jesse Brown Veterans Affairs Medical Center (go...America?).

I loved living in Chicago for seven years, and I'm also delighted to be back in the Boston area.  I currently live in Newtonville with my husband, our two young kids, and our dog.

No, I did not write this book (but wouldn't it be cool if I had?!).
