About

My work with clients is influenced by the well-known American Humanistic psychologist, Carl Rogers. He believed that there is a positive energy in all of us to grow, develop, and become more mature. When a person experiences unconditional acceptance and empathic understanding from another (a parent, friend or therapist), who is also experienced as genuine, human and "real," growth naturally occurs. I make every effort to be with, understand and accept, and see the positive strengths of clients. My therapeutic work has also been influenced by contemporary self psychology, intersubjectivity theory, and relational theories in psychoanalysis.
In addition to working with clients, I taught psychology for 31 years at Queensborough Community College, The City University of New York (I am Professor Emeritus). I have written journal articles used in graduate clinical psychology programs, and served on different editorial boards.
Up until recently you could often find me jogging in Central Park (I completed eight NYC Marathons), but now you are more likely to find me doing yoga or swimming. I have also taught and supervised therapists in training at advanced psychotherapy institutes.
