Life is full of unlimited opportunities and joys if we choose to live in connected harmony with one another, our beautiful world, and our creator. My mission is to help children, teens, and their parents find this balance.
I have been married for 41 years to a wonderful woman and have two amazing children and one granddaughter who is the apple of my eye. I have passions for motorcycling, reading, traveling, public speaking, writing, playing with our three dogs, and spending time in the great outdoors.
I have a B.A. in psychology from the University of California at Berkeley, an M.A. in psychology from the University of Arkansas, and a Ph.D. in clinical psychology from the University of Arkansas. I completed an American Psychological Association-approved internship at Silas B. Hayes Army Community Hospital in Fort Ord, California and a post-doctoral fellowship in pediatric psychology at Madigan Army Medical Center in Tacoma, Washington. I am licensed in Psychology in the State of Washington (#1695).
I have worked as a pediatric and adolescent psychologist in the Army for 10 years, in private practice for 25 years, and more recently at Madigan Army Medical Center for the last 5 years where I serve as a senior staff member providing pediatric and adolescent psychological services, family therapy, training, supervision of practicum students, clinical psychology interns, and consultation to Madigan clinics.
