As a general psychiatrist, I provide treatment for patients 18 years of age and older, mostly for conditions of depression, anxiety, mood dysregulation and psychosis. While I am dedicated to providing care to a general psychiatric population, I feel uniquely privileged in providing care to individuals coping with parenting and marital stressors. Each individual is unique with a specific set of life circumstances. I see an individual’s relationship with self as the foundation of all life experiences, and key for healing and moving forward.

I am a Rush trained, Child and Adolescent Psychiatrist who provides psychotherapy and medication management. I am passionate about helping patients and their families overcome the stigma surrounding mental health treatment for children. There is an unfortunate shortage of psychiatrists that specialize in treating children, which I recognized early in my training. This area of psychiatry is uniquely challenging due to its diversity, but I have worked with patients from a wide range of socio-economic, religious, and cultural backgrounds, and even patients as young as three years old.
