Practice Description: For 35 years, I've treated Bipolar Disorder, Depression and Borderline Personality Disorder, and for most of those years, taught psychiatric residents at Johns Hopkins Medical School. Five years ago, I introduced mindfulness meditation into my practice. The calm self-awareness a disciplined meditation practice provides is a powerful tool in self-regulation that allows you to make better choices in the moment.
More meditation can mean less medication if you can learn to regulate yourself. While medication is often an invaluable tool, I am of the opinion that there is a trend in our field to over-medicate. Since most medications have side effects, less is often more.

Bipolar Disorder:
I treat all forms of bipolar disorder, with a particular interest in hypomania, a mildly manic temperament often found in creative successful people. I teach you how to gain self-control while at the same time not losing your creative spark. My book, The Hypomanic Edge: The Link Between (a Little) Craziness and (a lot of) Success in America, linking hypomania to success and the American character was named by the New York Times Sunday Magazine as one of the most "innovative and important new ideas of 2005."

Borderline Personality Disorder:
BPD is very treatable, but it's important to see a specialist.
I began my practice after completing a post-doctoral fellowship in Treatment of Borderline Disorder at New York Hospital-Cornell Medical Center, using the methods pioneered Dr. Otto Kernberg. For the last 5 years, I've integrated some aspects of Marsha Linehan’s Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) into my practice, especially mindfulness meditation.
