About

I am a child, adolescent and young adult psychiatrist seeing patients for both psychotherapy and medication management services by telehealth. My practice is small and patient-focused with a tailored approach to meet every patient's unique needs. My approach to treatment is to provide a safe, comforting environment where patients feel able to express themselves emotionally without fear of judgment. I pride myself on being empathic, warm, and caring with an ability to personally connect with each of my patients and their families. I love what I do and I believe this reflects in the results I help my patients achieve.
My child psychiatry training was completed at Brown University with a sub-specialty focus in treating neurodevelopmental disorders such as Autism, as well as expertise in treating general psychiatric disorders including anxiety, OCD, ADHD, depression, and mood disorders.
While my particular areas of clinical interest include treating anxiety, OCD, & depressive disorders in children and young adults, I also enjoy women's mental health and treating a wide variety of general psychiatric issues. I believe treatment works best with a combination of medication management & therapy, therefore I offer both services in my practice.
