About Me

Why I chose to pursue a career in medicine:

I have always had a strong interest in working with and helping others while at the same time studying biology and the human condition. Throughout my scholastic and work careers, I have had the opportunity to pursue these interests in many different ways but never to such a personally rewarding extent as I have experienced as a child and adolescent psychiatrist. I believe that every day I have the opportunity to make a difference in the lives of my patients by instilling hope, fostering healing and improving mental health, which is so important in daily life and for general happiness.

What I want my patients to know about me:

I am committed to working with my patients and their families, and helping them realize their potential through improvement in mental and physical health, which I believe are interconnected and inseparable.

What I do when I'm not seeing patients:

I enjoy spending time with my family. I am an avid sports fan. I also enjoy reading, running and trips to the beach!
