I am involved in an array of, mostly volunteer, activities in the Washington Psychoanalytic Institute. These include: serving as a Teaching Analyst, Chairing the Clinical Psychoanalytic Fellowship Program, Supervising in the Psychoanalytic Studies Program (PSP), serving on the Institute Council (our Education Committee), serving as the Institute Council Liaison to our psychoanalytic candidates and participating in other activities of the Institute.
Washington Psychoanalytic Institute courses
I greatly enjoy teaching this course because it focuses on clinical technique and helping candidate analysts get started with their first psychoanalytic cases.
Psychoanalytic Writing: (2nd year candidates)
Adulthood and Character Disturbance: Narcissistic and sadomasochistic difficulties (3rd year candidates)
Continuous Case Conference (3rd year candidates)
Washington Psychoanalytic Activities
Chair, Fellowship Program
Beyond my teaching roles, I serve as Chair of the Fellowship Program, in tandem with my Co-Chair, Lindsay Brancato, Psy.D. The group is comprised of mental health and educational professionals who are interested in learning more about how psychoanalysts think and work. And, how we apply psychoanalytic concepts both to the academy and beyond.
Supervisor, Psychoanalytic Studies Program (PSP)
I am a clinical supervisor for the PSP. Technically, I am a clinical consultant as the students are licensed in their discipline. Clinical supervision is an integral part of the program. Many people, interested in psychoanalysis, get started in the PSP and then shift and enter into psychoanalytic training.
Of course, I also supervise licensed people in the context of my private practice. And, any licensed professional interested in clinical supervision (really consultation) in my private practice is welcome to call me: 301.656.9650.
