Areas of Interest

My medical interests include mood disorders, ADHD, PTSD, sleep disorders, mind-body medicine including mindfulness practices, and access to medical and psychiatric care for all.

I enjoy traveling with my wife, especially to see our sons and grandchildren, bicycling, hiking, tennis, skiing, and attending sporting events. I have been a member of the Board of Directors of the Center for Community Counseling since 1989.
