Current Clinical Work

I am currently working with Correctional Medical Services to develop their behavioral health system and treat inmates with mental illness in prisons across Idaho. I have a special interest in maximum security offenders and the severely and persistently mentally ill. As a small part-time job I do private forensic psychiatric legal evaluations and I moonlight running the psychiatric inpatient unit once a month on the weekend in Idaho Falls.
