ABOUT

For a partial list of my presentations and publications click here.

Before becoming a therapist, I worked professionally within the creative practices of arts and design for over 20 years. During some of that time, I was also a Public Policy Fellow at the United States National Academy of Science in Washington D.C., where I worked on policy related to valuation and support of the creative practices. I was also a visiting scholar at the United States Library of Congress in Washington D.C., and am the co-founder of the Cultural Information Lab at Pratt Institute.

Since becoming a therapist, I was named a Teacher of the Year at New York University (NYU) and was a co-author of the evaluation criteria for the Fuller Challenge which was named “socially responsible designs highest award.” I was also the designer of the Fuller Challenge Fellowship Program for young socially-responsible designers.

MENTAL ECOLOGY

In addition to my private practice, I am the Founder of the Mental Ecology Studio, LLC which is dedicated to appreciating, understanding, and transforming our personal and collective mental ecology so that we may better appreciate, understand, and transform our social and environmental ecologies. Our mental ecology is our first ecology. It is the origin of all creativity.
