WHERE I PROVIDE CARE
Profile
ABOUT ME

As the oldest of six children in my family, I had a lot of opportunities to accompany my siblings to doctor appointments. My family's pediatrician was a wonderful person and it led me to think about medicine as a career in high school. Then I had an early exposure to mental health by volunteering at a psychiatric hospital where I observed the wonderful team work and treatment by the providers. This led me to pursue a specialization in psychiatry. However, I have always enjoyed working with children, which led me to pursue a fellowship in child psychiatry. The types of patients I treat are children and adolescents suffering from mood and anxiety disorders. My approach is to empower the young person to participate and help lead their treatment. Also, I work closely with parents to provide guidance on best treatment options. One wonderful aspect of my job is hearing how great previous patients continue to be and learn of all the positive things they are achieving outside of the office.
