Training and Background
I graduated from Harvard College with a B.A. in psychology. My M.D. is from Baylor Medical School in Houston, TX. I had a one year internship at Swedish Hospital in Seattle, followed by a four year residency in adult and child psychiatry at the University of Michigan, in Ann Arbor. My analytic training was with Seattle Psychoanalytic Institute.
I was an assistant professor of psychiatry at the University of Washington for six years. During that time I directed the day hospital for psychotic and autistic children. I have been a consultant to the Peace Corps, Seattle Public Schools, Psychiatry Division of Madigan General Hospital, Washington State Dept. of Corrections, community mental health clinics, and currently conduct a monthly seminar at Western State Hospital. For eight years I gave seminars for non-medical psychotherapists. I have maintained a private practice since 1969.
My regular fee is $200 per session of 45-50 minutes. I am covered by the major insurance carriers and some others; a call to the carrier or a website check will determine if I am a provider. Some HMOs require prior approval, so that needs to be determined. When the fee is a financial hardship it can be negotiated.
