There is nothing worse than hearing that alarm clock day in and out, only to wake up feeling like you didn’t sleep at all. All the thoughts begin to flood in, your “to-do’s”, this or that meeting or appointment. You haven’t even made it out the door before feeling completely overwhelmed, defeated, or maybe even hopeless. Depressed, anxious, moody, or irritable may be words that describe how you’re feeling; perhaps your loved ones have said similar things. I have helped countless others like yourself, and I am confident that together we can get you feeling better. I treat a wide range of mental health disorders adolescents and adults

As a psychiatrist I have a unique practice where I offer combined talk work (psychotherapy) along with conservative use of medication, where necessary. I work with individuals, couples, and families from a family systems perspective, having trained extensively in Bowen Family Systems Theory. I live in Des Moines, Iowa and provide televideo psychiatry throughout both Iowa and Colorado. I see folks on a self-pay basis so I do not accept insurance. However, I do work with folks who are financially strained to find a fee that works within their budget. At this time I am unable to see folks who are 65 or older or on Medicare.
