I chose outpatient psychiatry because I learn so much from getting to know people and helping them change. I provide general psychiatry services to adults at the HealthPartners Riverside Clinic, including evaluation and medication management for ADD, depression, anxiety, bipolar and psychotic disorders. I have a particular interest in issues of religion and spirituality, recognizing these can be important health resources for some people.

In my free time, I enjoy hiking, reading and creative writing.

Please note: This provider serves adults, adolescents and children, ages 6+.

New patient appointments:
Patients must have been seen by a HealthPartners, HealthPartners Family of Care, or Park Nicollet Primary Care Provider in the last two years in order to schedule a new patient appointment in psychiatry.
