I am proud to be the oldest daughter of two very accomplished people. I grew up in Bloomfield Hills, MI, not the stereotypical doctor’s family. It was instilled in my sister and me at an early age, to work hard, money doesn’t buy happiness. There are people who will have more than you and people who have less.
We were raised on Jewish values, identified as a sense of community, primarily we lived a life of service. I was not a traditional student and blazed my path. I didn’t go to college right after high school; I bought a business instead. It was one of the best life lessons that encouraged me to go to school for ten straight years.
I graduated from the University of Michigan-Dearborn with a BA majoring in psychology. That journey led me to Oakland University where I obtained my master’s degree in counseling. Always knowing I needed to prove to myself that I could do almost anything I graduated with my doctorate in Psychology from the Michigan School of Professional Psychology.
I’m also a mother to two little people. I have a seven 1/2-year-old son and, a four 1/2-year-old daughter. My children are my best presents from my second marriage. I now have a significant other. Also, I have bonus kids too all while being a psychotherapist for over ten years.
I will be sharing family dynamics in these bi-weekly podcasts and we hope you will be able to relate.
