A Passionate Psychiatrist Professional with over 20 years of experience

University, I completed my Residency in Psychiatry at Boston University
I have over 20 years of experience treating stress-related illnesses,
and working with individuals and organizations to embrace tools that
empower personal growth.
Currently, I am the Medical Director of Behavioral Health for a
large metropolitan hospital in Portland Oregon, and lecture widely on
the role of stress in illness and health, and the many ways patients can
be proactive in living a healthy, authentic and satisfying life.
I have developed this interactive website which outlines and
encourages people to embrace and practice well-known stress

proven to provide significant long-term benefits."
