Where I practice
Hello, and welcome to my Web page. Thank you for taking the time to get to know me.
I grew up in the great state of Wisconsin. I developed a love for hockey playing on frozen rivers and lakes as a kid. I still find time to play today in Southern California, but I no longer have to endure the subzero temperatures. I am a curious person by nature. I enjoy trying new things and making discoveries about myself and others along the way. I love to laugh and enjoy time with friends and family, but I am introspective and therefore appreciate peace and tranquility. I am also hardworking, precise, neat, and meticulous... that is the German in me.
About my practice
I love practicing psychiatry because it affords me the opportunity to make a real difference in people’s lives. I often meet people when they are at their most vulnerable and I relish the opportunity to make a lasting impact that improves the quality of their lives. I give my best to my patients each day and could not do so without the help of my co-workers. I have utmost respect for my colleagues and value their opinions.
How I thrive
I am a fitness-minded individual. In my free time I like to be active and never stop exploring. I challenge myself with hockey, golf, tennis, swimming, biking, and hiking. I am into garden design, architecture, travel, photography, and the culinary arts... mostly the eating part.
