My practice is eclectic and unique, as is, I imagine, most everyone reading this.
As a Licensed Psychologist (PSY22096) I’ve solid training and experience in “traditional” psychological approaches, including cognitive-behavioral therapy and psychodynamic psychotherapy, as well as “nontraditional” psychological approaches, including existential, humanistic, and transpersonal therapies. I’m Board Certified in Biofeedback and Applied Psychophysiology (BCIA3105), and use mind-body techniques with just about everyone I work with. I also have extensive training and experience with “alternative” approaches, and include elements from psychospiritual and shamanic perspectives when appropriate. In addition to working with standard treatment issues, such as anxiety, depression, insomnia, and chronic pain, I work with psychospiritual issues, such as spiritual emergence or anomalous experiences, helping to integrate these experiences into a coherent world-view.
My past includes work in internal medicine, psychiatric, and psychological clinics; psychiatric hospitals; academic and non-profit organizations; and private practice. My post-doctoral residency was in a chronic pain / functional restoration rehabilitation medical clinic, where I stayed after the post-doc as a staff psychologist, for a total of 6 years post-doc training in chronic pain.
My academic career has been eclectic, with an undergraduate double major in psychology and philosophy, double minor in mathematics and physics (B.Ph., 1983 – Penn State); a masters degree in interdisciplinary consciousness studies, with focus in holistic health education and transpersonal counseling (M.A. 1987 – JFKU); and doctorate in psychology (Ph.D. 2000 – Saybrook).
As spiritual beings having a human experience, every health or emotional challenge can be an opportunity for growth. Let me help you develop the skills, perspectives, and awareness to manage your challenges and walk your personal path with integrity and authenticity.
All sessions are by appointment only.
