Life does not come with an instruction book!

Living in coastal Hancock County, I am a member of the Maine Psychological Association, now retired from the practice of psychology. My current interest is working for greater awareness of aging issues for gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender Maine residents. As one of the co-founders of the New York–based organization Services and Advocacy for GLBT Elders, I am working to facilitate the development of a SAGE-affiliate in Maine.

Studying psychology taught me skills in solving problems in life; I am a Fellow of the American Psychological Association (APA).

Studying aging taught me about the art of living all of one's years; I am a Fellow of the APA Division on Adult Development and Aging.

Studying sexual orientation taught me about loving and social oppression; I am a Fellow of the APA Division on LGBT Issues.

Studying social issues taught me about diversity and social justice; I am a Fellow of the APA Division on Social Issues.

During my years as a faculty member in the Department of Psychology at City College, City University of New York (1970–1998), I wrote and co-edited several books, chapters in books, and journal articles. I have also taught in Japan and Maine, and lectured in China.
