Chicago | Diplomate in Adlerian Psychology |
Director, Center for Adlerian Practice and Scholarship
I consider myself an Adlerian historian, a theoretician, and a practitioner in a broadest sense of Adlerian practice. I am also and hopefully will always be an Adlerian student, and I am fortunate to have many great Adlerian mentors. In maintaining these roles, I see myself a connector – tying together the past and the future through research, matchmaking people for collaborative projects, engaging students and colleagues in everything that I am doing in our communities. In teaching, research, and community building, I follow a Rule of the Three Rs – adhering to Reason, Rigor, and Relationships. I see these principles being especially useful at the great contemporary social junction where Adler’s Individual Psychology responds to a call for community actions and for personal responsibility for the fate of humankind.
My special interests and expertise are in Early Recollections, dreams, therapeutic metaphors, cross-lingualism, and optimal neurocognitive processes. I am a Diplomate in Adlerian Psychology, a faculty member at the International Committee of Adlerian Summer Schools and Institutes (ICASSI), a NASAP Certified Adlerian Psychotherapist, and a President of the International Association of Individual Psychology (IAIP). I am also a licensed clinician – a licensed psychologist (MN) and Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (MN) providing clinical services and supervision. I love teaching and am fortunate to teach nationally and internationally (in Canada, Jamaica, Japan, Taiwan, China, Korea, Romania, Bulgaria, Slovakia, Russia, Ukraine, Belarus, Austria, Germany, India, Israel, the Netherlands, and other countries).
