Clinical training and teaching are among my great passions. I lead the psychiatry residency CBT didactics and have taught psychopathology, evidence-based treatment, clinical research methods and statistics in the past. I much enjoy mentoring and working with psychology students, interns, psychiatry residents, fellows, and colleagues across disciplines.

My clinical care is housed in the M Health Psychiatry Outpatient Clinics at Riverside and in St. Louis Park. Certified by the Academy of Cognitive Therapy, my treatment approach is evidence-based with a core foundation in CBT and integrated with mindfulness and acceptance-based techniques. I bring experience from a variety of healthcare settings including academic, private practice, and hospital-based specialty clinics.
