I am a psychiatrist with expertise in both psychopharmacology and psychotherapy. I earned my medical degree from Rosalind Franklin University and completed my psychiatry residency training at the University of Chicago. As a general psychiatrist, I have experience working with a wide range of psychiatric disorders and with patients from diverse cultural backgrounds. I understand that many people have difficulty accessing psychiatric services. Therefore, my practice utilizes a virtual platform to provide patients located in Illinois or Wisconsin with high quality and confidential care without leaving the comfort of their homes.

I offer nonjudgmental care to help clients gain improvement in mood and functionality. My goal is to work with individuals to bolster coping strategies, reframe negative thinking, and improve overall quality of life. I am licensed and board-certified to diagnose, prescribe for, and treat a variety of mental health conditions across the lifespan. My approach to care includes psychoeducation and therapeutic interventions, and often suggest innovative treatment modalities such as psychedelic therapy (Spravato) for treatment-resistant depression and Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) to treat OCD and depression.
