I have a variety of clinical interests including behavioral issues- youth violence, aggression, ADHD, substance use, and teen-parent conflict; adolescent mental health, including Anxiety, Depression, Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder, Eating Disorders and general adolescent issues including male health, puberty, growth, sexual orientation and transgender issues.
I am the father of 3 kids- I recognize that parenting has added a unique perspective to my work as a pediatrician/adolescent specialist, making me a better doctor. I love all aspects of the Colorado outdoors
