She received a B.A. in Anthropology from the University of Washington, a Diplome from the Institue de Sciences Politiques in Paris, a M.S.W. from the Simmons College of Social Work and a Ph.D. from the Union Graduate School. A skilled psychotherapist, she first met Virginia Satir in 1969 and since then has studied or worked with Virginia for part of every year. From 1971-83 she was a full-time member of the faculty of the School of Medical Sciences at the University of Nevada where she helped design, implement and teach in a prototypical interdisciplinary program for health sciences students, as well as teaching communication skills and family dynamics to medical students and resident physicians. She is a former Fellow of the Radcliffe Institute, has been certified by the Academy of Certified Social Workers as well as the Nevada Board of Marriage and Family Counselors and has written a number of articles for professional and lay journals. She now conducts a limited practice of marital and family therapy, and is a trainer in the AVANTA Network.
