I am a psychologist with advanced training in neuropsychology, health psychology and general mind-body medicine. My work focuses on how we can use our mind to train our brain to better regulate our bodies and our lives. My recent book, Staying Sharp: 9 Keys to a Youthful Brain through Modern Science and Ageless Wisdom, promotes these principles as they relate to how we can cultivate a youthful brain and authentic life throughout the second half of our lives. I maintain a therapy practice in Minneapolis, MN but am actively involved in teaching and training as a speaker, workshop/retreat leader and trainer locally and nationally. I look forward to connecting with you through the MBN!
