I am a board-certified psychiatrist with an interest in reproductive psychiatry. I have completed additional training in women's mental health and spent several years treating women with a variety of concerns in different clinical settings. While I am able to treat a woman across her lifespan, I particularly enjoy working with women who are trying to conceive, pregnant and postpartum. This can be in the form of a one-time consult to provide expert recommendations to be carried out by another treatment team or in the form of ongoing treatment with me.

The field of psychiatry in Metairie has many sub-specialties, including pediatric psychiatry. Those who work with the elderly are called geriatric psychiatrists.
