New Orleans Psychoanalytic Institute, graduate 1984

Short Bio:

I grew up in Rosedale, Queens, NYC, and later Roslyn, Nassau County, NY. During high school, I studied for a summer in Quito, Ecuador at the Universidad Central. At Cornell Univ, School of Arts and Sciences (Ithaca, NY), I majored in English, minored in Chemistry, and studied Spanish, French, and Attic Greek. After three years, I was accepted at Tulane Medical School. I spent the next 19+ years in New Orleans, finishing medical school, internship, psychiatry residency, and psychoanalytic training. I practiced in New Orleans for about 10 years, and became involved with Child Protection Agencies and a variety of charitable organizations whose purpose was to protect children from physical and sexual abuse. I also taught at Tulane Social Work School and Tulane Medical School.

After marrying Susan Roussel in 1986, we moved to Virginia Beach, VA, where I was appointed Associate Professor of Clinical Psychiatry at Eastern Virginia Medical School. A few months later, I began teaching at Naval Medical Center - Portsmouth as well. In 1995, Susan began her (now) 20 years of employment law defense and business immigration law practice with Willcox & Savage, PC, and I became a Training and Supervising Analyst with the Freudian Society in Washington, DC.

Our son, Ted, went to MIT, majored in physics, and now works with 3-Scan, a tech startup in San Francisco. Susan became a partner at W&S, and is the upcoming Chair of the Hampton Roads Regional Chamber of Commerce. I had the good fortune, through volunteering with the China American Psychoanalytic Alliance, to meet many colleagues in different cities in China, and although I no longer am connected with CAPA, I continue teaching and supervising professionals there. Two of my books have been translated into Chinese.

Currently, I practice psychoanalysis in Virginia Beach, do psychiatric evaluations, and continue writing and teaching.
