I was born and raised in New York. I earned my doctorate in clinical and school psychology from Hofstra University in 1996. I relocated to Colorado in 1999. Prior to joining Kaiser Permanente in 2001, I experienced the rewarding work of community behavioral health. I am fortunate to have a wonderful family, which includes my wife, two children, and two dogs.
One of the primary advantages of working at Kaiser Permanente is the ability to work within a multidisciplinary team. I would describe my practice as cognitive-behavioral in terms of orientation. I enjoy partnering with adults in addressing a wide range of psychological and social issues. I have a special interest in the treatment of adults with anxiety, chronic mental illness, and anger management concerns.
My patients have a better understanding of their health because they can access their medical record, prescription information and lab results at kp.org. I have been told that I have a direct but gentle style, which I have found to be effective in helping my clients achieve their goals.
I enjoy walking through contemporary art museums and galleries, and listening to live music. I love a good bookstore, and have been spotted at a garage sale or two. Weekends often include trying new and interesting restaurants with my family.
