I take a holistic approach to patient care and personalize my treatment to the individual’s needs using healthy lifestyle strategies, counseling, and judicious use of medications.
I use measurement based practice methods, and evidence based medicine treatments. I am comfortable managing complex medication and psychological needs.
Because of my flexible, personalized and thorough approach, students find me easy to talk to and work with.
I strive to help students achieve their fullest potential and help set a path for continuous self-improvement.
I adjust my supervision appropriate to the trainee's level of training and areas of growth. I believe that trust, compassion, while challenging oneself are important elements to improve knowledge and practice.
My clinical interests include learning and advancing treatments of anxiety, depression, bipolar disorder, addictions, and wellness strategies for emotional health.
