Trained at Harvard, Johns Hopkins, and the University of Pennsylvania, I have been in the clinical practice of psychiatry, psychotherapy, and psychopharmacology in the Philadelphia area for over forty years, and provide crisis-intervention, consultation and short- and long-term therapy for children, adolescents, adults, couples, and families. I have extensive experience in the treatment of psychosomatic and eating disorders, depression and suicidal behavior, anxiety, psychosis, sexual and physical abuse, and addictions, among other problems, and also provide consultation and ongoing clinical supervision for mental health professionals of all disciplines.
In addition to my outpatient private practice, I have served as Medical Director of Inpatient and Consultation-Liaison Psychiatry at the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia, and Director of Child Psychiatry Training at Philadelphia Child Guidance Clinic, and Director of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry at Friends Hospital in Philadelphia.
I have lectured and presented workshops at many national and international conferences, including the APA, AAMFT, and the annual Psychotherapy Networker Symposium, as well as having co-authored "Madness, Chaos, and Violence: Therapy with Families at the Brink," a book describing the treatment of the most severe, difficult clinical problems.
