Dear colleagues and friends:

Happy Fall.... the heat kicked on in my house this morning; I love the smell of steam heat in New York. And, I think I've said it before, but, if you're on Twitter, please follow my good friend Nathan Rice - his @nyctherapist feed is a thing of psychoanalytic beauty - I can't recommend it enough.

As always - if you know of someone you think would enjoy this list, please pass it on. And, if someone other than me sent you this and you want to be added to the list of folks who receive it (and nothing else from me) monthly, click here. Send event announcements to And, to unsubscribe, click the link at the bottom of this e-mail.

I'm committed to providing this list, free, to all who want, but it does cost me a bit of money to produce (about $2k/year, plus my time). If you want to support it (and only if), you can contribute by Zelle, to, or using

With thanks, as ever, to my colleague Anna Velychko for her invaluable help in putting this list together.

Stay safe, sane, and healthy,
September 2022
