In addition to being a psychoanalytic psychotherapist, I have presented at conferences and to general audiences speaking on the topic of breast cancer, BRCA, and their impact on family-life and communities. In May 2011 my husband, Dr. Jay Grossman, and I were recipients of the 13th Annual "Tribute To The Human Spirit" Award through the Cancer Support Community Benjamin Center.

As the Vice-President of Homeless Not Toothless, a non-profit organization, I am also committed to raising the pride and dignity of the homeless, with the ultimate goal of ending homelessness. In September 2009 I co-hosted a gala for Homeless Not Toothless to raise awareness and funding for its newest project, a clinic that offers dental treatment to the 28,000 children placed in foster care in the Los Angeles area.

I am also an active member of Doctors Who care, a group of doctors, committed to providing the highest level of care to patients. I was featured with this group in Los Angeles Magazine's January 2010 issue of top doctors in Los Angeles.
