I am trained as a clinical psychologist and have spent most of my career working with inmates and forensic psychiatric patients. I received my doctoral degree from the University of Denver in 2005. Since that time, I have provided assessment, therapy and other clinical services around the country with a wide range of people, from college students to Not Guilty by Reason of Insanity acquittees, anxiety disorders to violent criminals. I have many years of clinical experience and have worked in multiple settings with nearly every psychological problem. I have served in various leadership positions, including several years overseeing the clinical operations of a forensic psychiatric hospital. I have worked closely with attorneys, judges, law enforcement authorities, medical and mental health professionals, and many others and have collaborated on the creation of policies, best practices and initiatives to better serve the mentally ill. I have conducted evaluations for courts and served as an expert witness.
I currently teach forensic psychology at Maryville University in Saint Louis and work in independent practice providing clinical and forensic services around Missouri and Illinois, where I am licensed.

I was essentially a normal person. I had good friends, I led a normal life, except for this one small, but very potent and very destructive segment.-Ted Bundy
The best years of your life are the ones in which you decide your problems are your own. You do not blame them on your mother, the ecology, or the president. You realize that you control your own destiny.-Albert Ellis
It is a capital mistake to theorize before you have all the evidence. It biases the judgment.-Sherlock Holmes
