My mission is to alleviate the pain and suffering of my patients via a shared collaborative and personalized approach. My interest in psychiatry was born out of working with chronic pain patients and an understanding of the effects of their psychological and social environment on their condition.
I am a licensed and board certified Physician Assistant. I received my Masters of Medical Science in Physician Assistant Studies from Midwestern University in Downers Grove, IL and a Bachelor’s in Biology from Western Connecticut State University. I have an extensive background in the chronic pain field, having worked with chronic headache patients for 20+ years at a tertiary care center providing both inpatient and outpatient services. I focus on a wide variety of psychiatric disorders including anxiety, depression, ADD, and bipolar disorder.
