My most important credential is my 30+ years of experience as a therapist. Every client I help teaches me something that I can bring to future clients. My experience doing individual adolescent and adult psychotherapy, couples therapy and family therapy has also helped me to be warm, creative, level-headed, respectful, and non-judgmental – all important attributes in a psychotherapist.
I have an MA from the University of Chicago, a Ph.D. from the Institute for Clinical Social Work, and I’m a licensed clinical social worker (LCSW). I also train and supervise students and therapists, and I’m actively involved in the intellectual and political life of my profession.
