CMHW Alumni

What year did you graduate?


Undergraduate College/University

Mount Holyoke

Undergraduate Major


What was the best class you took as an AP student?

Cognitive Psychology. My professor didn't not lecture. Instead, they required students to master the material before class and then debate in class to prove they had done the work. She was amazing.

What was your first job after you graduated? 

Harlem Family Institute

Do you have any advice for people interested in a similar career path?

Psychoanalytic institutes are great places to get training, supervision, and hours toward your license. You have to be prepared to not make any money but you have a lot of control over your work.
