My Professional and Personal Experience

 
Before starting my own Clinical Practice in West Windsor, I was the Director of Preventive Services for Family and Children's Services of Princeton including both the Family & Child Home Program and New Brunswick Outreach. As well, I was the Executive Director of the Family Mentor Program of Middlesex County. In 1998, I received the annual New Jersey Governor's Award for Outstanding Leadership in Child Assault Prevention.
 
Writing this I should add that my life encompasses other dimensions. I am in a happy marriage with the same person I began my early adult life with. We were married for 15 years before we decided to have children. During that time, I was a professional dancer performing with a dance company and living in New York City. We decided to raise a family in Cranbury, New Jersey. We have two close, grown children, in their own relationships, who are finding their way. Just like everyone else, I can say that life has been full of rewards and challenges, surprises, joys and sorrows just like everyone.
