Senior Director of Behavioral Health

Staff Details

Title: Senior Director of Behavioral Health
Pronouns: He-Him-His
Phone: 202.745.7000

I work at Whitman-Walker because of the communities we serve, my deep roots in the LGBTQ communities and my long history living within the HIV pandemic. As the Senior Director of Behavioral Health, I manage an amazing team that includes psychiatric medical providers, psychotherapists and peer counselors. I grew up right outside of DC, with my heritage in farming. I see my role as a therapist as someone who tends to many gardens, fostering new growth and life. I have a Bachelor of Science in American studies with a concentration in American literature. I have a master’s in Divinity and a doctorate in ministry from Wesley Theological Seminary. I began my journey as a board-certified Chaplain, working with the integration of spirituality and mental health prior to getting my licensure as a professional counselor. I have worked in mental health and substance use care since 1984 staring as an intern at the Washington Hospital Center and then St. Elizabeths at The Psychiatric Institute of Washington – The Lambda Center.
