Practice Experience

My experience has been varied. While living in London, I served as an administrator of a residential school for disturbed adolescent girls between 1967 and 1975. After receiving my MSW, I worked two years for United Hospital as a clinician in an out-patient substance abuse clinic. Then, between 1990 and 2005 I worked for Westchester Jewish Community Services in a mental health clinic whose catchment area took in a wide demographic; in 1996, the agency presented me the Lillian Roemer Award for Clinical Excellence. While at WJCS, I supervised MSW students from Smith College, NYU, and Fordham; I also taught and supervised students in the Fordham Post-Masters Certificate program. For the past ten years, I have been in private practice in Ardsley, New York.
