My Passion for Healthcare

I've always been fascinated by what underlies people's thoughts, feelings and behavior, and the field of psychiatry has allowed me the opportunity to understand my patients from multiple perspectives as I help to improve their mental health and maximize their quality of life. I enjoy having long-term relationships with my patients that allow me to customize their treatment to address their unique circumstances and concerns, and then follow up closely on their progress. I try to emulate the care and concern that my own excellent doctors have afforded me throughout my life.

My Clinical Focus

I see adult patients of all ages and with a wide variety of clinical concerns, primarily in my outpatient clinic, and, less frequently, in an inpatient setting. I am most passionate about treating patients with a combination of psychotherapy and medications (when appropriate), and I particularly enjoy working with younger adults during difficult life transitions. I feel fortunate to be able to work closely with resident physicians as a teacher and supervisor of their clinical work.
