WHO I AM
My Passion For Living Fuels Itself From
My Complimentary Purposeful Relationships With Others.
Early in my career, I was known nicknamed as: "the 90-day Wonder” by my heroin-addicted clients. They marveled at my skills, empathy, understanding, and trustworthiness. They found my abilities especially significant knowing I was just a college-educated young man from Montreal who knew nothing about the truths of life in and being an addict on the “Streets of New York”.
My Fundamental Abilities To Respect Similarities In People And To Rise Above Our Differences Have Guaranteed Me My Greatest Successes!
For over 20 years, I worked as a clinical psychologist in both public and private practice. During that time, I counseled well over 1,500 adults, adolescents and children in individual, group, marital, and family therapies. As a therapist and as a consultant, I collaborated with any significant social system that was necessary to assure my patients ultimate success. I made it my mission in life to jump into the middle of their greatest traumas and pain, unafraid to share those moments with them, as and until, they achieved relief.
Over the years, I have assumed many roles. I have been a program director for the mentally ill homeless. I counseled substance abusers and addicts. I founded or co-founded several health care related businesses including: The Center for Psychological Services, a multidiscipline outpatient mental health clinic; Rediscovery, an outpatient cocaine treatment program; Time For Me, Inc., a mind/body stress reduction clinic; and Residential Treatment Centers of America, an intense residential treatment facility for adolescents. I have taught, trained and supervised psychological interns and assistants and introductory psychology for the University of Phoenix.
I found my true passion as I transitioned from being a clinical psychologist into Personal Development, Wellness and Business Concierge MINDSET Coaching.
As a Coach, I have maintained my keen sense of caring about others. I use many of my professional skills, but with a new focus. I now work with people who, like me, are seeking personal and professional change, pleasure, meaning, and joy, people who want to live in complimentary environments to sustain all that we are and want to be.
Coaching affords me the ability to work with the “coachable”; i.e. “normal people” and the luxury of referring, as necessary, the clinically/“diagnosably impaired” to qualified licensed mental health professionals for psychotherapy.
I earned my B.A. in psychology from Loyola College of Montreal, Canada, 8/68, my M.A., in psychology, from The New School for Social Research in N.Y.C., 7/71, and my Ph.D. in clinical psychology from the California School of Professional Psychology – Fresno, 7/76. I have also trained with CoachVille and The Institute for Life Coach Training and am a member of both The International Coaching Federation and The International Association of Coaches.
