About Me

Mental health care is an important aspect of overall health. It is now more common than ever for youth to be struggling with anxiety, depression, and suicidality. I strive to meet each patient and family member with openness and compassion and to make them feel that they are not alone in what they are going through. I believe that every person has unique strengths and deserves to feel like they can engage fully in their activities and relationships. When I am not in clinic seeing patients, I am working toward finding ways for youth to have improved access to learning social-emotional and coping skills and mental health care. Other activities that give me joy include reading, weaving baby hats, being outside, and spending time with my two cats.
