In my clinical practice, I provide a range of services:
My counseling approach avoids superficial, symptom-management based approaches, instead focusing on the deeply entrenched roots of psychological problems rather than the outward manifestations of them.
I specialize in complex and confusing cases, including suspected feigning/malingering and can assist in establishing or clarifying diagnoses.
I am proud to offer counseling, assessment and consultations to veterans, first responders, front-line workers and other service providers.
I am available for one-time consultations or ongoing work and offer both in-person and telehealth options.
I am licensed to provide teletherapy to patients in Arizona, Colorado, Delaware, Georgia, Illinois, Missouri, Nebraska, New Hampshire, Nevada, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, Texas and Utah.
I am trained as a clinical psychologist and have spent most of my career working with inmates and forensic psychiatric patients. I received my doctoral degree from the University of Denver in 2005. Since that time, I have provided assessment, therapy and other clinical services around the country with a wide range of people, from college students to Not Guilty by Reason of Insanity acquittees, anxiety disorders to violent criminals.
I have many years of clinical experience and have worked in multiple settings with nearly every psychological problem. I have served in various leadership positions, including several years overseeing the clinical operations of a forensic psychiatric hospital. I have worked closely with attorneys, judges, law enforcement authorities, medical and mental health professionals, and many others and have collaborated on the creation of policies, best practices and initiatives to better serve the mentally ill. I have conducted evaluations for courts and served as an expert witness.
