Personal Statement

My work focuses on education and training in the areas of suicide prevention and suicide care. Particular interests include supporting clinicians who have experienced the loss of a patient to suicide and building knowledge among health care professionals about cultural aspects of firearm ownership and use.

Teaching Philosophy

​Training begins with accurate identification of clinical phenomenology and extends to description using established explanatory models.  Theoretical models then guide clinical interventions with the goal of therapeutic benefit to the patient.
