I have practiced for nearly 20 years as a board-certified psychiatrist. Interacting with patients is extremely rewarding personally and professionally. Learning from each patient interaction hoping to be better for the next is a personal goal. We are mind, body, spirit and soul. Understanding, knowing and treating the whole person produces the best outcome.
My experience is colorful, broad, and includes but is not limited to work in the following areas in no particular order: both inpatient and outpatient hospital settings, Indian Reservation, maximum security jail, teen and adolescent residential treatment, sexual predator unit, group private practice, psychotherapy training, private and community addiction treatment facilities, research, military, non-profit medical facilities for the working uninsured, VA, county sheriff department, pharmaceutical education, multiple associate professorships for medical, nurse practitioner and physician assistant schools, private practice.
