I provide patient-centered care that is grounded in solid empirical research. As a former service member of the Army Reserves I am also particularly interested in serving other members of the military and their family members.

I grew up in White Bear Lake, MN and I am quite fond of my hometown. I enlisted in the Army Reserves at the age of 17 and served from 2001 to 2009. I attended graduate school in Toledo, Ohio. One of my greatest passions is traveling. Traversing the Panama Canal, sailing across the Atlantic Ocean, and touring the Mediterranean rank among my favorite trips. I enjoy volunteering for Big Brothers Big Sisters and a grief camp called Children’s Grief Connection.
