Welcome to My Home Page!

I was licensed and began practice in 1995. I have a humanistic philosophy of care in which I try to understand each patientís worldview and to help them to understand themselves better. I like to focus on each patientís strengths and to help them to use those strengths to address their problems and improve their lives.

I work on the Crisis Team, co-lead a Dual Diagnosis group & Rapid Symptom Reduction group and have a special interest in transgender issues and prostate cancer support.

If you think you have a MEDICAL OR PSYCHIATRIC EMERGENCY, CALL 911 IMMEDIATELY or go to the nearest hospital. DO NOT attempt to access emergency care through this web site. An emergency medical condition is a medical or psychiatric condition that manifests itself by acute symptoms of sufficient severity (including severe pain) such that you could reasonably expect the absence of immediate medical attention to result in any of the following: serious jeopardy to your health, serious impairment to your bodily functions, or serious dysfunction of any bodily organ or part. An emergency medical condition is also "active labor," which means a labor when there is inadequate time for safe transfer to a Plan hospital (or designated hospital) before delivery or if a transfer poses a threat to the health of the member or unborn child.
