I spent 20 years providing assessment, crisis intervention, criminal/drug/alcohol rehabilitation, and mental health treatment to prison inmates.

In addition to my work in prisons, I treated and assessed adults and children in the community seeking help for depression, anxiety, relationship problems, and developmental and childhood disorders.

I have a particular interest in the intersection between law, politics and mental health services, and in the philosophical and conceptual foundations of mental health diagnoses, theories and treatment.

In my free time I enjoy downhill skiing and hiking in the mountains.
