Over 30 years of practice
I have been in full time private practice since 1988. Since that time I have also offered private supervision and consultation to other private practitioners on a regular basis.
From 1989 to 1993 I was an adjunct faculty at the Lewis and Clark graduate program in Counseling Psychology teaching courses such as Human Sexuality, Clinical Practicum, and Couples Therapy.
In Philadelphia I administered an AIDS program which did prevention and HIV testing and counseling, as well as developing policies and procedures.
For the 5 years preceding that I was a Clinical Assistant Professor at the Medical College of Pennsylvania, teaching medical students, residents, and mental health professionals in continuing education programs on a variety of clinical mental health topics. During these 6 years (1982-1988) I also had a part time private practice.
From 1979-1982 I was involved in my Ph.D. program at the University of Pennsylvania. From 1974-1976 I was getting my MSW from the same school. 1976-1977 I was an inpatient social worker for psychiatric hospital. 1977-1979 I was a counseling supervisor for an outpatient program working with adjudicated delinquents.
My work experience includes inpatient psychiatric, outpatient ER mental health evaluations, day treatment, and administrative and preventive work. I have been doing independent psychotherapy since 1976.
