My initial clinical training was in existential-based therapists that were in vogue on the West coast in the early 70’s. Additionally, I trained in body-oriented therapies, here-and-now oriented Gestalt therapy, and implementing insight-meditation in a holistic treatment environment. As much as I valued this work and saw first-hand it’s effectiveness, I noticed that I most respected other professionals who had come from a more “solid” traditional background and then discovered the added depth and effectiveness of alternative treatments. I felt that I was going at it backwards.

In the late 1980’s, after many years of practicing within this perspective, I uprooted my family to pursue state-of-the-art traditional education and training, obtaining my Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology, trained in hospitals such as Bellevue and Bronx Psychiatric and then did post-doctoral training in psychoanalysis at New York University. I worked hard and was fortunate to receive some of the best training available in the world in clinical psychology and psychoanalysis.

I have continued to be actively involved in teaching and training students in psychotherapy as well as in my own continued learning and education. I moved to New York to be on the leading edge of my field and continue to re-find and be challenged by that pursuit.

I am also a visual artist and have exhibited my photography in juried and one-person shows and have held private classes and workshops on photography. My eye for aesthetics is an intricate part of how I work with other artists as well as others.
