I am a board certified adult, child and adolescent, and forensic psychiatrist in Fort Collins, Colorado. I have been practicing in the field of psychiatry for over 15 years. I practice conservative, evidence-based medication management after thoughtful diagnostic assessment. I strongly believe that — while medication may be a helpful aspect of treatment — it is only a piece of a larger picture. Developing a patient-centered treatment plan including therapy, healthy sleep habits, healthy recreation, exercise, and potentially medication is truly the best way help people move toward wellness, and so I strive to work with people to focus on their treatment goals.
Mental illness can be devastating, but you are not alone. There is help.
After training in New Jersey, Phoenix, North Carolina, and Denver, I have settled with my family in northern Colorado. Like many people in our region, I enjoy time outdoors hiking, camping, fishing, and exploring the beautiful Rocky Mountain West.
