It is very gratifying to see how a patient's own strengths, especially related to faith issues can aide in their recovery. I served seven years as a Navy psychiatrist. I take great pride in having served my country and helping those who have mental health issues as a result of having served. I like to take into account aspects other than just a person's biology thus including the psychological and social aspects of their life and how that affects their illness and well being.
Pursuing things that will improve my faith journey, spending time with my husband, my three young adults , and our Westies , staying fit and enjoying the outdoors, travel, scuba diving and hopefully returning to some artistic endeavors.
