Biographical Information


“As a combined trained physician, in family practice, psychiatry, and osteopathic manipulative medicine, I specialize in the interface of mental health, manual medicine and faith. My career has focused on rediscovering and developing a genuinely osteopathic psychiatric practice. I sincerely seek to fulfill the Latin root of the word ‘Doctor’, teacher, in all of my pursuits.”
