Phone: (206) 463-4406
Years in Practice: 40+
While my original training was as a child and adult psychiatrist, I have been practicing and teaching psychoanalysis for the past three decades. I am currently a member of several local, national, and international psychoanalytic organizations. I am licensed in Washington, Oregon, and Canada and hold training and supervising analyst positions in several psychoanalytic institutes. While greatly influenced by all my previous training in the United States and Great Britain, currently Bion’s works and ways of thinking inform my practice. My contemporary professional interests include learning from experience, the function of maternal reverie in learning and growth, envy, concretization, notions of “evil”, and, from a wider perspective, the nature of reality.
