I am a double board certified psychiatrist with experience treating child, adolescent, and adult patients. I graduated from Drexel University College of Medicine in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. I completed my Adult Psychiatry residency training at the San Mateo County Behavioral Health and Rehabilitation Services Training Program in San Mateo, California. This was followed by completing the Child and Adolescent Psychiatry fellowship at the University of Washington in Seattle, Washington. My experience spans medication management, individual and parent-focused therapy, and work in a variety of settings including inpatient and outpatient practices at Seattle Children's Hospital, work with native Alaskans in a residential setting, outpatient consultation to primary care providers in the states of Washington and Wyoming, comprehensive evaluations of patients in the Wyoming DFS system, telepsychiatry work, academic psychiatry, supervision of mid-level providers, work with adults with developmental disabilities in residential settings, psychiatric utilization management, expert witness and Independent Medical Examination work.
My private practice includes both therapy and medication management. I have experience working with patients whose diagnoses include depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, disruptive behavior disorders, substance abuse or dependence, attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder, and Autism Spectrum Disorders. My particular areas of interest include working with very young children (ages 0-5) & their parents, anxiety, disruptive behavior disorders, ADHD, and challenges unique to gifted/2E individuals.
