Originally from New York, I was a banker and realized that my calling was to work in psychology. I'm the author of two books on career, parents and relationships, a new collection of fictional short stories about therapy, and I also write plays.
As much as psychology's founders wanted it to be a science, I've come to understand that healing oneself—and growing out of old "stuff"—is an art, and effective, life-changing psychotherapy requires a creative rather than a theoretical approach.
