Personal Statement
I became fascinated with psychoanalysis when I was a college student. I had a professor who was an analyst; he had been trained by Anna Freud. Not only did I take all the courses he taught, but I would go to the library on my own to read the works of Freud. It was my good fortune to stumble upon Modern Analysis in 1979, the year I graduated from college. I knew then that I wanted to start my training as an analyst, and I did. Modern Analysis has enriched my life as a person, practitioner, teacher, husband, and father. I strongly recommend it!
