"I have worked in the field of child and adolescent psychiatry for over thirty years
and continue to find each day an exciting and stimulating challenge. It is a
privilege to work with children, teens, and their families and to be able to play
a role in their development."

Specializing in Child and Adolescent Psychiatry
Contact: (971) 219-8363
Specializing in the assessment, diagnosis, and treatment of complex
cases, psychoanalytically-oriented psychotherapy of children and
adolescents, and psychopharmacology. I am especially interested in
the care of persons from other cultural traditions, an outgrowth of
many years of clinical and research involvement with refugees from
Southeast Asia, and particularly Vietnam.
Prior to entering medicine, I served as a Captain in the US Marine
Corps during the Vietnam War. It was that experience that stimulated
my interest in both medicine and cross-cultural psychiatry.
My practice is bilingual; English and German are spoken here.
