Since completing psychiatry residency in 1987 I have worked for over 30 years as a clinician, teacher and researcher. I am board-certified in both General Adult Psychiatry and in Child & Adolescent Psychiatry. As a psychiatrist I have expertise in diagnosis and in the medical aspects of treatment, but I also have special expertise in psychotherapy with children, adolescents & young adults. I believe strongly in the central importance of expert psychotherapy. I have extensive experience as a consultant to child & adolescent primary care and medical settings. I have worked throughout my career as a clinical teacher and supervisor for trainees and colleagues in mental health disciplines.
