My Approach to Helping


I've practiced psychotherapy for over 40 years, and during most of that time also taught psychiatric residents at Johns Hopkins Medical School. My areas of specialization are bipolar type 2 and borderline personality disorder. I've also worked with many entrepreneurs since the publication of my book, The Hypomanic Edge: The Link Between (a Little) Craziness and (a Lot of ) Success in America.
What's different about me is that after receiving traditional training, I've integrated it with meditation. Mindfulness, especially when combined with therapy, provides calm objective self-awareness that leads to self control which may lessen the need for medication. More meditation can mean less medication.
More recently, I'm working with research subjects who have undergone psilocybin therapy, for a book, "The Cosmic Consciousness Cure." Effecting the same brain areas as meditation, psilocybin therapy produces a quantum leap in mindfulness. I'd be happy to speak with anyone seeking legal psilocybin treatment. I can't provide it, but it is now legally available in Oregon. And I would be happy to work with clients on integrating that experience.
