Background

I earned my doctorate in Counseling Psychology at Rutgers University and am a licensed psychologist practicing in Princeton, New Jersey. I work with individuals, couples, and families.

In addition to the basic credentials required for the practice of psychology, I have become a Fellow of the American Psychological Association, a Distinguished Practitioner in the National Academy of Psychology, a Registrant in the National Register of Health Service Providers in Psychology, and the recipient of national and state Psychologist of the Year Awards from Psychologists in Independent Practice and from the New Jersey Psychological Association, as well as the recipient of the Gold Medal Award for Life Achievement in the Practice of Psychology, “for a distinguished career and enduring contribution to advancing the professional practice of psychology through a demonstrable effect on patterns of service delivery in the profession,” American Psychological Foundation, 2012.

Other contributions include being a clinical supervisor for doctoral students at the Graduate School of Applied and Professional Psychology, Rutgers University; a seasoned speaker for public and professional audiences; the author and editor of numerous articles, chapters and eight books; and consultant to programs, agencies, and health care organizations.

I was the 2010 President of the American Psychological Association. Located in Washington, DC, the APA is the largest scientific and professional organization representing psychology in the United States and is the world’s largest association of psychologists.

Over years of service in the American Psychological Association leadership, I have been the Treasurer of the association and a member of its Board of Directors, chaired the APA Task Force on Evidence Based Practice, the Policy and Planning Board, the Task Force on Health, and the Congressional Initiative on Serious Illness. In addition, I served as Senior Advisor to the Advisory Council on Genetics, co-chaired the 2009 APA Presidential Task Force and Summit on the Future of Psychology Practice, and am a past president of APA's largest division, Psychologists in Independent Practice.
