This is just a brief overview of my credentials and experiences, but it will give you an idea of who I am. I first moved to Baltimore from Binghamton, New York in 1975 to attend college. I went on to earn a Masters degree in Counseling Psychology from Loyola
University. Work experience includes the Community Counseling and Resource Center and Sheppard Pratt Hospital where I worked with a wide variety of populations including children and adolescents. For 18 years I volunteered at the Family Tree doing crisis intervention by phone for at-risk families and have occasionally trained new phone counselors for the hot line. Additional volunteer work in the field includes piloting a support group for homeless women in downtown Baltimore, which continues to run today. I am currently the school counselor at Immaculate Heart of Mary where I established the Counseling Program in 2010. My most practical experience is having 4 children of my own, who also happened to go through IHM.
