About

Bio

Originally from Scotland. Came here to attend Columbia University. Graduated, BA. in Psychology (cum laude). My graduate school was CSPP-Los Angeles where I received my Ph.D. Clinical Psychology in 1984. During my pre-doctoral studies, I interned at the Suicide Prevention Center.. I also interned at Cedar-Sinai Dept. of Child Psychiatry, where my emphasis was on autism and early childhood development. My final internship was the med-psych department of the West Los Angeles V. A. Hospital. I attended to veteran problems: PTSD, depression and impact of diabetic- related limb amputation. Post-Doctoral internship was at Woodland Hills Psychiatric Medical Group where I participated in a group practice. I'm a mom and G'mom who loves all.
