She obtained her doctorate from The Wright Institute in Berkeley, California in 2007 and moved to New York City where she was employed within the city hospital systems for 10 years as a Supervising Psychologist and as the Assistant Director of Child and Adolescent Education and Training at Mt. Sinai-St. Luke’s Child and Family Institute.
