About

Bio

I am a board certified child, adolescent, and adult psychiatrist. After more than 20 years in clinical practice I moved into a Medical Director position with Cenpatico Behavioral Health in Austin, TX. Cenpatico specializes in managing behavioral health benefits for a variety of populations coveted under Medicaid and Medicare. I continue to maintain a limited clinical practice, and I am currently licensed to practice in TX, LA, FL, KS, NE, and WA. In addition to my medical work I enjoy reading and hiking. As a seminary graduate and ordained minister, I am also very interested in the interface between mental health and spirituality.

Specialties
Doctors may have more than one area of specialty interest. Board certification in a specialty area means the doctor has completed formal training and has practice experience in that specialty, and has passed the certification examination from the corresponding accredited medical specialty board.

I usually just have cereal for breakfast, but I will experiment. Perhaps I'd feel better with fruit and oatmeal. Thanks for helping me think of something I've overlooked!

Thank you, your answer was very helpful! Very clear. There was one symptom I hadn't seen before, at least the way you put it - lack of initiation of movement/activity.
