Effective Therapy for Individuals and Couples
Partners in Psychology, Ltd
I believe that therapy works best when it is tailored to the personality and the individual needs of each patient. Rather than relying on just one of the many modern approaches to psychotherapy, I pull from several disciplines, including psychodynamic and cognitive behavioral, which I believe yields faster and longer-lasting results. In my career I have treated, and helped, people from all walks of life, stages of life, gender identities, education levels, sexual orientations, diagnoses, personality styles and presenting problems, and most religions, ethnicities, and races. I can say with confidence that my deep experience will be of benefit to you if you decide to take me on as your therapist.
I attended Cornell University as an undergraduate and the University of Florida for graduate school. I came to Chicago in 1986 for a Residency in Clinical Psychology at Northwestern Memorial Hospital and in 1989 completed a Post-Doctoral Fellowship at the Northwestern University School of Medicine, Institute of Psychiatry. For several years following the completion of my formal schooling, I was fortunate to be invited to join a group of psychologists who met weekly with an eminent psychoanalyst, Merton Gill, MD., to learn from him through the presentation of our clinical work to the group.

Since 1989 I have been an Assistant Professor of Behavioral Sciences at Rush University Medical Center and have split my professional time between my private practice and a position as a Staff Psychologist at the Rush University Counseling Center. At Rush I have served as the Director of the Outpatient Psychotherapy Service and have taught medical students and residents on a wide range of subjects: personality theory, psychodynamic therapy, psychoanalysis, interpretation of objective and projective personality measures, etc. In addition, and most enjoyably, I supervise the clinical work of Behavioral Sciences Residents and Fellows eager to improve their skills as psychotherapists.
