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!

What is Resilience Do you want to be described as resilient? Most people do. Resilient people are "winners," it seems.

WHY DIVERSITY MATTERS Diversity, it seems, is hardwired into Mother Nature's plans.
