About Me

I chose to go into medicine because of my work with children with type 1 diabetes and other chronic conditions in South America. I reasoned that, as a physician, I would be in the best position to advocate for the children and families that I served. I decided to pursue combined training in pediatrics and child psychiatry because I realized that it is impossible to separate the physical and mental aspects of health and wellness, and I wanted to have be able to treat the whole person. At Duke, I work in the inpatient consultation and liaison child psychiatry service at Duke Children’s Hospital as well as in the outpatient setting serving patients with complex medical and psychiatric needs. My philosophy in working with patients and families is to focus on their strengths in order to help build self-efficacy and empowerment. In my free time, I enjoy cooking and spending time outdoors with my family.

Clinical Focus and Research
My Research Interests

I am interested in peer mentorship and health coaching as a mechanism to improve health care outcomes for youth with chronic conditions as well as transitions of care for youth with chronic physical illness. Another area of interest is improving access to behavioral health care in North Carolina through innovative and collaborative partnerships with pediatric community providers.
