I have been formerly on staff in the Section of Geriatric Psychiatry at the University of Pennsylvania, and I presently consult to the Department of Bariatric Surgery at Chestnut Hill Hospital. I have been invited to lecture on psychological topics to physicians and residents in primary care, specialist care, and in training settings. Talks I have given include at Grand Rounds at the University of Pennsylvania Health System section of Geriatric Psychiatry, the Jefferson University Hospital Pain Clinic, and the Chestnut Hill Family Practice Residency Program. I have also spoken both locally and nationally at various psychological conferences.
I have been involved at the board level in professional organizations, including as Past-President of the Philadelphia Society of Psychoanalytic Psychology (PSPP); Member of the Board at the Association for the Psychoanalysis of Culture and Society (APCS); and member of Division 39 (Psychoanalysis) of the American Psychological Association. I have also completed advanced training in psychotherapy at the Psychoanalytic Center of Philadelphia, where I am on the faculty.
