Together, we will develop a specific plan to improve your mental health.

I am a psychiatrist serving OR and KY via telesessions. My clinical work increases capacity to endure and shift challenges in relationships. I work to help understand patterns of distressing conflicts in one or more areas of your life such that you feel less isolated by intense emotions and build new patterns in relating. I find psychotherapy is the best modality for making lasting, real change; therefore, I devote the majority of my professional time for individual psychotherapy cases with and without medication management depending on your needs.

I work with adults of all ages and diverse backgrounds. I fundamentally believe that healing happens in relationship and that authenticity, curiosity, empathy, and compassion are the cornerstones of helpful clinical relationships.
