Ocean Waves


My most important credential is the time I've devoted to the renewal of lives for over forty years. What I have learned and seen in the process makes me grateful beyond measure, putting into perspective the markers of my formal education and training:

  • Bronx High School of Science, Diploma 1959
  • Columbia University, A.B. 1963
  • School of Design, University of Pennsylvania, M.Arch. 1968
  • School of Medicine, George Washington University, M.D. 1977
  • Residency in Psychiatry, Sheppard-Pratt & Sinai Hospitals 1977-1981
  • Clinical Asst. Professor, School of Medicine, U. of Maryland 1982
  • Board Certified in Psychiatry 1984
  • Certificate in EMDR, EMDR Institute 1991
  • Certificate, Interactive Metronome Practitioner 2003
  • Certificate, Somatic Experiencing Practitioner, 2005

I arrange an extended phone conversation before deciding about meeting in person. The beginning of the working process is always provisional. If it is difficult to hold in-person sessions frequently enough, remote sessions may be possible. Ordinarily, I restrict email between sessions to matters such as scheduling. Sessions missed without sufficient advance notice will be handled on a case-by-case basis. I may offer a make-up session without additional charge.

I consider the funds I receive as a gift made in reciprocity for the gift of my time and skill, not as payment for services rendered. I expect to receive any amount within the figures below, the range depending on location and individual circumstances. Payment is by cash, check, or funds transfer app. I'm always open to discussing any issues relating to compensation. Since I no longer practice medicine, medical insurance and medical savings accounts are not financial resources for people working with me.
