Personal profile

Professional Information

My Care Philosophy

I believe in the capacity of individuals to improve the quality of their lives via healthy lifestyles (i.e. social, vocational, nutritional, physical activity/exercise, creative and spiritual endeavors).  Additionally, I am consistently impressed with the success of my patients to manage their physical and mental health concerns in collaboration with their professional partners - with the shared goals of minimizing suffering, maximizing health and each individual's purpose and meaning in existence.


Clinical Interests

I have devoted my career to treating folks with severe and persistent mental health disturbances, those with physical and mental health challenges, as well as those with new onset mental health concerns.  I approach each patient interaction with the goal of understanding the unique individual that I am partnering with, and to render the most accurate and comprehensive diagnostic impression.  In collaboration with my patient, a patient-centered treatment plan is crafted and updated, that utilizes a balance of individualized lifestyle counseling, psycho-therapeutic and psycho-pharmacologic treatment.  I appreciate the importance of therapeutically addressing thoughts, behaviors, developmental and dynamic aspects of the individual that adversely impact their mental health and functioning.  I strive to assist my patients in the goal of maximizing meaning and purpose in their lives.  I have a particular interest in existential psychotherapy and philosophy, and have recently been working to increase the availability of Meaning Centered Psychotherapy for patients with advanced cancer within the University of Minnesota/University of Minnesota Physicians' Oncology Department.
