I received my B.A. in psychology from Stanford University and my Ph.D. in clinical psychology from UCLA.

During graduate school, I was trained primarily in cognitive-behavioral work and sought additional training at the Gestalt Therapy Institute of Los Angeles (GTILA), eventually becoming President.

I received training in hypnosis from Jean Holroyd and Michael Diamond at UCLA’s Neuropsychiatric Institute, plus studied guided imagery with Muriel Fuller.

I pursued analytic self-psychology from Lynne Jacobs.

For over a decade, I have been studying interpersonal neurobiology and regulation theory with Allan Schore. I have taught developmental neurobiology at the Santa Barbara Graduate Institute and at Reiss Davis Child Studies Center.

I am currently an Adjunct Professor at Pacifica Graduate Institute, a visiting professor at Italian Universita Niccolo Cusano London, and Core Teaching Faculty at the Insight Center in Los Angeles where I regularly conduct continuing education workshops and classes.
