Mental health has such a tremendous impact on our overall well-being and sense of self. I have a passion to help others facilitate meaningful, lasting changes in their lives in order to reach their full potential. It has been extremely rewarding to be able to foster trusting relationships with my patients and support their emotional growth.
I’m an astute listener, highly compassionate, and always finding ways to grow as a provider to provide the best care for my patients. I use a collaborative approach to formulate a personalized treatment plan, using a combination of medication, therapy, and lifestyle recommendations. I have experience with a diverse range of individuals with depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, OCD, eating disorders and ADHD. I always aim to provide a comfortable, open environment in which you can freely express yourself.
I completed my Master of Medical Science in Physician Assistant Studies at Midwestern University where I received training in Psychiatry as well as Women’s Health, Internal Medicine, and Family Medicine. I received my Bachelor of Science in Psychology from the University of Pittsburgh where I was involved in research with the Pitt Early Autism study and the Laboratory of Neurocognitive Development.
