BIOGRAPHICAL PROFILE


In short, I love my work. In addition to conducting groups throughout my career, teaching and supervising group psychotherapy is especially rewarding for me; it connects me to the "learner" in myself, the challenges of new concepts and skills, and the opportunity to make myself available to students in an open, interactive way to optimize growth. I try to become the kind of teacher I cherished. The student's quest for knowledge and a safe space in which to freely and, at times, vulnerably try on new ways of thinking, responding and looking at one’s role takes courage. Engaging in that process has led to meaningful connections for me whether I am the teacher or the student. My interest in psychology began in college and continued through a doctorate from CUNY in the Clinical Psychology Program. Two years after receiving my Ph.D., I went back for more learning. As I began a private practice, I had plenty of new questions about the treatment process and the therapist's role. I took my time going through NYU’s Postdoctoral Program in Psychoanalysis and Psychotherapy, reading widely, discussing varied concepts in classes and enjoying different and exciting teachers and supervisors. Since then, I have been a consistent contributor to EGPS and AGPA conferences, offering workshops and institutes as well as attending others. Being a co-creator of the EGPS One-Year Training Program in Group Psychotherapy and on the teaching faculty since the program's inception, I have totally enjoyed my engagement with bright, diverse students in small classes. I continue to teach even as the program's Co-Director because it is my favorite activity of many that I perform. Despite my “seniority”, I continue to learn from seasoned colleagues as well as the most honest, straightforward perceptions of neophytes.
