Hello, I look forward to meeting you! I'm a double board-certified family and psychiatric nurse practitioner. My clinical experience has involved working with underserved patient populations, refugees, and undocumented migrant workers. I concurrently hold a faculty position at New York University, and my scholarly interests include impulsive behaviors, substance abuse, and the intersection of psychiatric problems with physical and mental well-being. I work with an amazing group of colleagues at Lavender, an online psychiatry and therapy office, where we believe psychiatric care shouldn't be expensive nor impossible to access.
