He is tremendously grateful for the mentorship and supervision of Benjamin Lipton, Kari Gleiser, and Jeanne Newhouse, along with the teachings of Diana Fosha, Natasha Prenn, Eileen Russell, and Jerry Lamagna. Prior to entering private practice, Michael trained as a clinical social worker at New York University and held staff psychotherapist and supervisory roles in outpatient community mental health in Brooklyn and Manhattan.
