Areas of Expertise

Professional Experiences

I am a physician (MD) specializing in adult and forensic psychiatry. I have held a private practice in the Salt Lake City, Utah area in which I treat both brain injured patients and patients with eating disorders, in addition to a large number of patients with anxiety and depression. I recently spent four years at The Center for Change which is a facility that specializes in the treatment of females with eating disorders. I treated patients at every level of care – from inpatient to residential, to intensive outpatient, to outpatient. For the last two years I have limited my eating disorder work to outpatient only. I completed a Forensic Psychiatry fellowship at UC-Davis Medical Center in Sacramento. I have conducted many hundreds of forensic psychiatric evaluations. A large number of these evaluations (over 150) have involved plaintiffs involved in civil lawsuits with brain injuries – either traumatic or toxic (e.g. carbon monoxide poisoning or hypoxia). I have testified as an expert witness in numerous civil cases involving personal/psychiatric injury and in multiple states, including California…”
