I have been a physician for over 40 years, trained at Penn State School of Medicine, University of Pittsburgh, University of Rochester,and Yale University. I am trained in family and group psychotherapy, a broad range of individual psychotherapies, and alternative methods including relaxation and meditative techniques.
I am board certified in Internal Medicine, Child and Adult Psychiatry, Child and Adult Psychoanalysis. I am published in peer reviewed journals, as well as author of many chapters and a book.
I have extensive clinical experience working with mothers and infants, young children, adolescents and adults who have come to me with a broad range of challenges and goals.
I also find it rewarding to work with other professionals. I have headed the Child Community Mental Health Program at CHOP and been director, chair and teacher of a Child and Adolescent Psychoanalytic Training Program. I am a Professor of Psychiatry of a major Pennsylvania Medical School teaching students, interns, residents and fellows.
I see children of any age up to 90 years old and beyond, individually and in the context of families. When working with children, I help parents meet their goals of being the best parents that they can be for their children. With children and adolescents, I help them grow into their potential. With Adults, I help them find better ways to cope with their circumstances.
In addition, I provide teaching, training and supervision to beginning students and seasoned practitioners.
