I am a Board Certified Psychiatrist who completed training in Family Medicine then obtained another residency in Psychiatry from Harvard where I rotated in the VA and other hospitals like McLean, Beth Israel and Brigham and Women’s.

My experience is diverse in different mental illnesses, populations, and settings and I provide services to patients with a wide range of psychopathology that is intertwined with socioeconomic problems.
