After graduate school I began teaching and doing research as an assistant professor at Trinity College in Washington, D.C. Doing research and teaching was immensely enjoyable, but I soon discovered that showing people how to actually use psychology to improve their everyday life was even more rewarding. It was time for a change of course. Taking the step from Academic to Clinical Psychology meant mastering additional material and acquiring a license to practice. In my case, that translated into a two-year supervised clinical internship at a community mental health center, The Maryland Foundation, and passing a lengthy state qualifying exam in 1977. With license in hand, and high hopes for the future, I began to build my private practice while still teaching. Finally, in 1983, I bid academia a fond farewell to devote myself full-time to a growing private practice.
Today, in my new Monrovia, Maryland practice, I work with adult individuals and couples. Over the years, I've had the privilege of helping clients cope with just about every kind of issue you can imagine... and some you probably can't... or wouldn't want to. If you've decided it's finally time to do something about what's been bothering you, it's finally time to make things better... you don't have to do it on your own. Working together as a team, we can find solutions that fit you. Call me, my number is at the bottom of the page.
