Peg has been a family and children’s therapist in Connecticut, West Virginia, and Ohio and is settled in Pennsylvania. She has been an Executive Director of a family and children’s outpatient mental health facility in Ohio, Clinical Supervisor to therapists and graduate students at Case Western Reserve University, Adjunct Faculty and Director of the college counseling center at Marietta College, and currently has a private practice located in Easton.

She has worked extensively with couples, families, and women and women’s issues, such as depression, anxiety, financial problems, vocational struggles, parenting concerns, blended family issues, marital conflicts, extra-marital affairs and self-esteem problems.

Peg is a member of the Episcopal Diocese of Bethlehem’s Commission on Ministry and is responsible for coordinating and training Regional Discernment Groups for individuals in the process of seeking Ordination to the Priesthood or Diaconate. Of particular interest to Peg is the intersection between Discernment, Formation, and the Science of Mentoring.

When Peg isn’t teaching, reading or at her private practice, she is singing in the choir at Trinity Episcopal Church, Easton, reading books by Miami Herald reporter and satirist Carl Hiaasen, spending time with her spouse, Andrew, an Episcopal Priest, and her Norwegian Forest Cat, Spridget, playing piano and sometimes teaching beginning students. She enjoys conversation with people to help explore their passions.
