About

Bio

I was fortunate enough to go to U. of Md. MEdical School where I had the opportunity to assist in research at both U. of Md. and Johns Hopkins. To understand the underlying brain physiology of diabetes, ADD, and lowered IQ was not only an enjoyable collaboration, but I also was with some pioneers. Before graduating, I helped initiate Headstart. My training in psychiatry was at UCSF. To really understand the process of psychotherapy, I went on to the SF Psychoanalytic Institute. I aided in teaching and research oh the therapeutic process.. My skill lays in evaluation for therapy, mood disorders, inability to succeed,supervising difficult & "stuck" cases. I enjoy Cinema& Psychoanalysis as well as public talks.
