Having retired from practice, she leaves this message:

To all of my cherished clients and referral sources (schools, pediatricians, former clients, etc.):

After thirty wonderful and fulfilling years, I have retired from my practice.

I have been so privileged to have a profession that provided me with a profound sense of purpose, fulfillment, and joy. But I have so many things I wish to do (follow new career paths, travel, spend time with friends and family, perfect my bridge game, cook, dance, etc.) and think that now is the time to do them!

I am so grateful for the confidence that you have shown in me over the years and the role that each of you as played in making my practice a lively, thriving one! I can’t thank you enough!

To those of you visiting my website for the first time: I invite you to go to the Mercer County Psychological Association website, where you will find a Member Directory. There, the list of local psychologists includes their contact information, as well as their areas of specialization or interest.

Wishing you all the best in the future.
