Spring 2017: After a short illness, Montae Saddler, my long-time personal trainer has died suddenly and unexpectedly. His love of sharing his knowledge of how to build functional fitness was truly inspiring to me and to his many trainees. Valuing growth of body, mind and spirit, he attracted trainees who were truly motivated and willing to engage in the process of becoming fit. With a firm foundation in martial arts (Kung Fu), Montae emphasized strengthening, flexibility and lengthening of muscles, and paid much attention to core fitness. His sessions were about focus, quality of movement over quantity, and being kind to the self, including pausing and resting after a sustained effort. During rest periods, we could talk about Eastern and Western philosophy, the Bills football team’s wide receivers, sing an Earth Wind and Fire riff, and talk politics or about atomic physics. He was very bright and one of his clients, who is a priest, said, "he knows more about the Bible than the Pope." We shared the belief that being fit in a supple, pain-free body requires continuous effort with modifications as we age. His trainees varied in age from 20-90. Joy in movement and present movement awareness, wisdom and knowledge of how the body works together as a whole is wonderful stuff! We used to meet three times per week for personal training; I miss seeing him, being with him and training with him very much. God speed on your journey, Montae.

PS: For those whose interest in personal training is stimulated by the above, stay tuned. His protégée trainer may be taking new trainees.

Dr. Treible Board Certified in Clinical Psychology, ABPP

Dr. Treible is board certified in Clinical Psychology as granted by the American Board of Professional Psychology (ABPP). Board certification recognizes, certifies and promotes advanced competence in the specialty of Clinical Psychology. In addition to demonstrating competency in working with patients and awareness and relevance of research and theory, board certified clinical psychologists demonstrate knowledge of diversity issues, supervision and consultation competency, and sensitivity to the ethical and legal implications of professional practice for patient protection.  

The American Board of Professional Psychology (ABPP) exam is the only test assessing competence and ethical practice of psychologists. The examination focuses on actual clinical skills and effectiveness, and is neither a credential review like the National Register nor a test of academic knowledge like the licensing exam. In a meeting with a panel of nationally recognized psychologists who had reviewed multiple videos of his work with patients and administered to Dr. Treible a rigorous exam, he demonstrated his abilities and expertise.

ABPP board certification is the only board certification recognized by the 156,000 member American Psychological Association or the National Register of Psychologists. Only 1300 psychologists in the United States have board certification in clinical psychology.

Referrals of family, friends, and associates are welcome.
