My practice style is holistic, collaborative, trauma informed, evidence based, and socially conscious. While my work is grounded in my medical training at Yale, I believe that DSM diagnoses can't capture the complexity of human experience. I explore alternative understandings of mental health alongside my clients. I treat people with depression, anxiety, OCD, trauma (including race and identity based traumas), and bipolar disorder. I also enjoy working with people who hear voices or see things. My clients are motivated to explore a broad range of tools for wellness, with medication as one tool in the toolbox.

I take a safe, comfortable, and multifaceted approach towards treatment. I have experience and have been trained in family psychiatry. Therefore, I treat all ages and populations. My primary area of focus is that of diagnostic evaluation and psychiatric medication management. However, I believe that psychotherapy is an essential part of treatment. I will provide this type of services if I feel I can help! If not, I will refer you to the appropriate therapist. Accordingly, communicating and involving treatment from other providers and "looking at the big picture" is essential!
