Prior to graduate school in psychology, he took a graduate degree in theology at Emory University and was a Protestant Minister for four years in Massachusetts in route to attending Boston University for his Ph.D. While as a student at Emory he was also the University Debate Coach and the Director of the Candler Choraliers, which produced a 33 rpm record for the Protestant Radio & Television Center, entitled,"Songs of the Spirit." Even though he was constantly questioning old theological concepts portraying God as an "out there flat earth sky God," he was elected by the faculty as the "Outstanding Senior of the Year." Immediately following receipt of his Ph.D. at B.U.,he became an Assistant and then a tenured Associate Professor in the City University of New York for eight years while doing his postdoctoral fellowship, starting his practice, and then founding the National Institute for the Psychotherapies.
