Greetings! I am a board certified retired psychiatrist and somnologist(MD), with a BA/MA in German Language and Literature from Northwestern University in Evanston, IL, USA.and a diploma from the Pushkin Russian Language Institute in Moscow, USSR. At age 16 I attended the Willstaedter Gymnasium in Nuremberg Germany and was an interpreter in the wrestling and judo hall at the Summer Olympic Games in Munich Germany in 1972.

After completing medical school at Vanderbilt University in 1981, I finished my residency in biopsychosocial psychiatry and psychotherapy at the University of Illinois Hospitals and Clinics in 1985.

I spent 30 years in private practice treating patients in English, Russian, German, Swedish and occasionally Spanish. I have traveled extensively worldwide (22 times to Germany alone).

Due to my extensive experience treating complex trauma victims, I organized and was the interpreter for the first Soviet-American exchange on dissociative disorders in 1989.

My areas of expertise are psychiatry, psychopharmacology, neurosciences, psychobiology, psychotherapy, internal medicine, sleep medicine, psychoneuroimmunology, the human microbiome, PTSD, traumatic brain injury, leptin, MTHFR, chronobiology, personality disorders, bariatrics, and dissociative disorders.

Having been an active liturgical and concert organist for over 40 years, I am well-acquainted with the literature of organs and organ building, as well as organ performance.
