Everyone deserves to have their concerns and questions taken seriously by their providers. My ongoing desire to defeat the stigma surrounding mental health has led me to my position with Clarity Clinic. I aim to be an advocate and ally that my patients can rely on in times of need.
Through compassion and active listening, I create an environment that allows my patients to feel comfortable sharing their concerns. I believe in an evidence-based approach to mental health and will collaborate with my patients through all the steps of their treatment plan. I believe that each person is unique, and everyone deserves to have their voice heard with a treatment plan individualized to their specific needs.
I am a licensed and nationally board-certified physician assistant. I completed my Bachelor of Science in Health Sciences, Master of Physician Assistant Studies, and Doctor of Medical Science degrees at Butler University in Indianapolis. During my time in school, I had the opportunity to complete my behavioral health rotation at the Family Center for Recovery in Lantana Florida, where I worked with patients of all ages and backgrounds. I grew up in the suburbs of Chicago and am looking forward to being back in Illinois to continue my career with Clarity Clinic and help you on your journey to mental wellness.
