I completed my doctoral training at Columbia University, my therapist training at the C.G. Jung Institute of New York, and have been on the faculty of New York University for 14 years.
In conjunction with my therapy practice, it is my continued connections to, and active engagements with, creative and wellness communities that make me a practical, progressive, and more consciously aware therapist.
I am a frequent speaker and writer on the relationship between psychology and the creative practices, best practices for providing therapy to creative and wellness individuals, the necessity for recognizing where consciousness lacks in design and design education and the effects of spirituality on the body and participate in select socially responsible design projects as a consultant.
I am an award winning educator (NYU) and have evaluated tens of millions of dollars worth of grants for the United States government. I was a fellow at the United States National Academies of Sciences and a visiting scholar at the United States Library of Congress, both in Washington D.C. I was a co-founder of the Cultural Informatics Studio at Pratt Institute and am a co-author of the evaluation criteria for the Buckminster Fuller Challenge named “socially responsible design’s highest award” and the founder of the Buckminster Fuller Institute’s Fellows Program for Socially Responsible Designers.
