Bio and Links

I received my B.A. from Yale University in 1975, my M.A. (1980) and Ph.D. (1983) from the University of Michigan. I practiced in Ann Arbor, Michigan and directed a counseling service at the University of Michigan Medical School until moving to San Diego in 1989. I am licensed as a psychologist in Michigan (currently inactive), Ohio (inactive), and California. In my practice I do psychoanalysis and psychotherapy, and have a sub-specialty in Reproductive Traumas and related issues. I see children, adolescents and adults.
