As we are going to post your answers on the TMS Wiki, feel free to write some text to introduce yourself:
I am a licensed clinical psychologist with psychoanalytic training and have a private practice in West Los Angeles. I have worked with TMS patients throughout my 25+ year career, and have been supervised by Arlene Feinblatt, Ph.D. (the psychologist who developed the psychotherapeutic approach to TMS in collaboration with John Sarno, M.D.) as well as Eric Sherman, Psy.D., and Frances Sommer Anderson, Ph.D. I have had great success in helping people who struggle with mind-body difficulties. In addition, I have specialty training in working with children, adults, and families. I have been an approved supervisor by the American Association for Marriage and Family Therapy since 1991.
