About Me

I have been a psychotherapist for over 35 years with training in a variety of methods including EMDR, Brainspotting, Imago Therapy, Clinical Hypnosis and Buddhist Psychology. I am a perpetual learner with interest in the interface of Eastern and Western approaches to the mind. I started my interest in mind/body studies in 1976 on the Ecology Unit at Lutheran General Hospital, Park RIdge, Il. This was basically a psychosomatic treatment unit which nurtured my interest in how psychology effected the body. This lead to 5 years as Director of Social Work Services at Victory Memorial Hospital in Waukegan Il where among other exposures, allowed me to work with stress related illness and introduce the beginning of biofeedback therapy to cardiac patients. I have been in private practice full time for 25 years with an emphasis on trauma, anxiety, panic, phobias and stress related medical issues. I was the first EAP Program Director for HS District 113 Highland Park/Deerfield, a position I served in for 25 years.
