About Marian
Most people know me as the woman who tries to warp time–coming up with a Fifteen Minute Hour. Actually this might be a good time to BATHE myself. Many people remember that BATHE stands for Background, Affect, Trouble, Handling and Empathy. So what is going on? For the first time in my life I am launching a website and putting myself out there for the whole world. How do I feel about that? Actually, I'm scared stiff. What troubles me the most? I am not sure I can adequately state my case electronically. How can I handle that? Well, I think I'll follow the advice of the sociologist Angeles Arrien that to succeed one only needs to Show Up, Pay Attention, Tell the Truth and let go of attachment to the results. Sounds like a plan. O.K. I'm here totally present. And I'm paying attention. Let me tell you the truth about why I would like to have an influence on you. I came to this country as an immigrant when I was 8 years old speaking mainly German. I did High School in 3 years and I ranked second in a class of 500 students and my mother wanted to know why I was not first. Three years later, I was a college drop-out, married and working as a secretary to the treasurer of an import firm. After having 3 children and a 19-year break, I went back to college. When I got into Graduate school, nobody told me that you couldn't get a Masters, a Ph.D. and by working as a therapist get credit for a psychology internship in 3 years, so I did it. I enjoyed my job since I was hired by the Medical School on April Fools Day 1978. I never lost my enthusiasm for teaching in the 30 years I spent at UMDNJ. I loved the challenge of dealing with the diverse needs of patients, medical students, faculty, and practicing physicians. Although I formally retired from my position at the medical school in July 2008, I have maintained and am growing my private practice in the Princeton, NJ area, specializing in working with patients experiencing emotionally triggered physical pain (TMS). I am a good therapist and would like the opportunity to apply my clinical and group dynamic skills to help you with a specific personal or organizational problem. I've always been an overachiever so I promise to do a great job! There! Now it's up to you. I'm done. I feel fine. I am not troubled. I will let go of attachment to the result. If you think that what I have to offer might be helpful, I would love to hear from you.
