My academic and professional history
I earned my Ph.D. in Psychology from Fordham University in 1983. I had previously earned my Bachelor of Science undergraduate degree in Biology in 1971 and subsequently a Masters of Arts Degree in Psychology in 1974, both degrees from Seton Hall University. I was licensed for independent practice in the State of New Jersey in 1986.
I completed Post-Doctoral training in Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy and Psychoanalysis at the Institute of Psychoanalysis and Psychotherapy of New Jersey.
I have been in private practice since 1986. I see adults, adolescents and couples.
In addition to the core clinical services, I also offer clinical supervision and case consultation to both pre- and post-graduate mental health professionals. I hold advanced training and certification in Psychodynamic Supervision. I am a Clinical Supervisor at the Psychological Services Clinic, Graduate School of Applied and Professional Psychology at Rutgers University as well as at the Thomas J. McShane Center for Psychological Services at Pace University in New York City. I offer these services in both individual and group format.
Other previous academic appointments include Clinical Assistant Professor of Behavioral Sciences at the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey.
I am on the faculty at the Center for Psychotherapy & Psychoanalysis of New Jersey (CPPNJ) where I teach, supervise, and am a personal and training analyst. I served previously as Dean of Faculty and was a member of the Training Committee.
