It is a pleasure to be a member of EABA. As a practicing psychologist, I am in a business which helps people (help themselves) and at the same time, can be very isolating. Confidentiality demands no specific discussion of my practice. Most folks don’t go around asking, “Who is your therapist or psychologist,” as you would ask for a banking, roofing or dental referral. However, more people are accepting of therapy now and it does not need to be viewed as such a stigma, as in the past. Confidentiality rules.

I began my journey in Homestead, PA working in Mental Health, Mental Retardation and Drug and Alcohol. That was real life experience in the trenches. After several years, I switched to counseling at CCAC and started 2 centers for Women and also Adults returning to college. All the time, I managed family and worked as a therapist after regular hours. I retired from CCAC in 2003, after 25 years, and focused on my private practice.

It has been an exciting adventure and hopefully will continue after I retire this December. I still plan on using my knowledge to consult, write and perhaps conduct groups. We can always learn from each other. Places like EABA allow that to continue. I appreciate the congeniality.

Congratulations on being the EABA November 2017 Member of the Month!
