My passion for Mental Health stems largely from my behavioral health rotations during PA school. These rotations helped me realize how big the mental health crisis truly was and how there were still unfortunately various barriers in place that made seeking care for mental health very challenging. This experience made me devoted and propelled me to play a role in helping combat the crisis as a provider, which ultimately led me to pursue the field of Psychiatry.
I am a nationally board-certified and state-licensed Physician Assistant. I was born and raised in Chicago and completed my Bachelor of Science Degree in Biology from Loyola University. I then went on to pursue a Master Of Physician Assistant Studies degree from Sullivan University. During my training, I was able to obtain valuable clinical experience in all aspects of medicine and encountered people from all walks of life.
Some of my specialties include but are not limited to: Major Depressive Disorder, Generalized Anxiety Disorder, Mood Disorders, Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder, and ADHD. I am committed to providing a safe, respectful, and judgment-free environment for all of my patients. I strongly believe in taking a holistic approach and treating a patient as a “whole” person. During a visit, my goal is to give you my utmost attention, as well as to cater to your best interests via an individualized treatment plan.
