I was born and raised in New York City and I spent most of my adult life there. I loved it there and I still do. I practiced in that community for almost 21 years. For 16 of those years I hosted a live, call-in radio talk show. I lectured internationally and as well as nationally. I have always continued to study because I enjoy learning new things. I am an avid reader. I came to Los Angeles in 2005 to attend the UCLA/Sepulveda VA Forensic Psychiatry Program for 1 year. I was seduced to stay by the opportunity to work with the fellowship program in a teaching capacity. I am presently the Director of the Forensic Training Program at Metopolitan State Hospital. As such, the fellows from the UCLA/Sepulveda Forensic Fellowship Program spend the greater portion of six months of their year training at Metropolitan State Hospital. There, they are primarily engaged in evaluations, report writing and treatment in the forensic unit of the hospital under my tutoring. I also have several offices in the Los Angeles County community where I provide treatment and evaluations to individuals who seek my services. I have found a rich and full life in my new home and a community that I am proud to serve.
