"I love helping people."
I received my General Psychiatry training at Columbia-Presbyterian Hospital in NYC, and Child Psychiatry training at the Child Study Center, Yale. I served as an Asst. Prof. of Child Psychiatry at Dartmouth, and continue as a member of the adjunct teaching faculty for psychiatry at the Geisel School of Medicine, Dartmouth.
I have been in private practice in Connecticut, Vermont, and New Hampshire providing therapeutic counseling services to adults, children and adolescents. I have collaborated with schools and child agencies working with children and families in crisis. I also have provided psychiatric support services to the American military community in Germany.
