I was born and raised in Peoria, Illinois and went East to college, graduating from Amherst in 1971. After working for two years at a state mental hospital in Boston, I entered graduate school, completed an internship at Duke University Medical Center, and obtained a Ph.D. from the University of Nebraska in 1980 in clinical psychology with a minor in law and psychology. I then returned to central Illinois in 1980 to take a faculty position at the University Of Illinois College Of Medicine, and I continued to work in the medical school and in private practice for the next 26 years. I moved to Colorado in 2006 to live near, and ultimately have a practice with, my daughter, who is also a psychologist.
Consistent with my education and training, I have broad experience and interests in both clinical and forensic psychology (the application of the science and profession of psychology to questions and issues relating to law and the legal system). Clinically, I have significant experience as a psychotherapist helping people of all ages with a variety of psychological problems from mild to severe. My forensic work often includes performing psychological evaluations in the context of some criminal or civil legal problem, such as divorce. However, being a collaborative law coach and mediator also falls within the scope of my general, forensic practice. In summary, I provide psychological services to adults, couples, children, and families in the role of a coach, mediator, therapist, or evaluator.
I am a member of the American Psychological Association, the Colorado Psychological Association, the Metropolitan Denver Interdisciplinary Committee, the Association of Family and Conciliation Courts, and of course, the Rocky Mountain Collaborative Law Professionals.
Personally, I enjoy outdoor activities, singing, cooking, and reading.
