Personal Statement
I became interested in analysis while teaching in elementary and middle schools, and pursuing a Masters in Education at Harvard. My teaching expanded to include adults when I spent a decade teaching in the corporate world. My passion for analysis connects with a deep interest in creativity and chaos and the interaction between them, especially as expressed in poetry and visual art. Artistically I work in collage to explore these themes.

I have completed the class work for the doctoral program at VGSP, a branch of BGSP, and am working on the doctoral thesis: a psychoanalytic study of the parenting program, "Parenting through Divorce: Supporting the Child." I helped secure this state-mandated program to the Graduate School.
