I was born in upstate New York, and after several years of traveling as an “IBM Brat” came to stay in Texas 1968. My partner and love of my life, psychotherapist, Tony Carroll, and I – after many years together – were married in Toronto in 2003. We office together and some of our friends call us “Dental and Mental” – affectionately, we hope.

We share many passions and concerns and are deeply committed to a number of charitable, civil rights, political, and educational causes at both local and national levels. Both community and political concerns are important in our lives and we are involved in a number of organizations including the Human Rights Campaign, the Executive and Professional Association of Houston, The Federal Club, the Victory Fund, Lesbian and Gay Rights Lobby, The Chamber, Lambda Legal Association, Winlow Place Civic Association. We are also members of a number of other organizations including Planned Parenthood, Americans United for the Separation of Church and State, American Civil Liberties Union, National Association for the Advancement of Colored People, the Texas Freedom Network, and the Southern Poverty Law Center.

In addition to our passion for public service and politics, art, opera, theatre, architecture, travel, and civil rights are important to us. My hobby is sculpting with special interest in the classical male form. (Professionally, Tony was a classical musician before returning to school to become a psychotherapist, and he’s just begun practicing the piano after a long time.) We also enjoy a large and diverse community of friends, and love to entertain.

My partner, Tony Carroll, LCSW, is a psychotherapist who specializes in working with adult individuals and couples in outpatient psychotherapy.He is involved with a number of organizations and has been President of the Texas Society for Clinical Social Work and the Clinical Board of Montrose Counseling Center. Curiously, we both started practices in Houston in 1981.
