I was born and raised in Madison, WI, completed my undergraduate degree and some graduate school in clinical psychology at Stanford. I then returned to the University of Wisconsin for medical school. I moved to NY, for my Family Medicine Residency, Family Systems Fellowship, and Family Therapy Training at the University of Rochester. Despite moving west, then east, I have maintained my core Midwestern values. I trained with George Engel (biopsychosocial model) for a couple of years, co-authored a couple books, and spent a decade practicing in a lovely, rural family practice in upstate New York. I spent another decade as faculty in the Family Medicine Residency before working at the University Health Service as – among other things – “the doctor’s doctor.”
I strive to be thoughtful, systemic, and bring a practical, individualized approach to each and every person.
When not working, I enjoy connecting with people, skiing (especially helicopter), hiking, biking, most everything outdoors, reading, writing, and just hanging out.
