I am a licensed board certified Psychiatrist. I completed my residency training at Loyola Stritch University School of Medicine in Chicago, Illinois in 1975 and was board certified in Psychiatry and Neurology in 1976. I began private practice in St. Charles, IL in June of 1975 and practiced at that location until October 2003 at which time I relocated to the Seattle area to be with my children and grandchildren.
In Illinois I had been on the senior attending staffs of Central DuPage Hospital in Winfield, Illinois and of Provena Mercy Hospital in Aurora, Illinois. I was the clinical director of Behavioral Health Services at Central DuPage Hospital (responsible for an 18 bed inpatient unit, the inpatient/outpatient chemical dependency program and their partial day hospital program) from August of 1998 through October 2003. During that same time frame I also was the clinical advisor to the DBSA (Depression and Bipolar Support Alliance) of DuPage County.
I served on the staff at Overlake Hospital Medical Center from November 2003 until October 2010. I served as the psychiatric consultant to the Partial Day Hospital program at Overlake Hospital from December 2004 through October 2010. I remain on the consulting staff at Overlake Hospital and Medical Center. I am licensed in the state of Washington.
