My goal is to foster a safe, inclusive environment in which patients can trust, openly talk to, and feel heard by me. I believe in the power of empathetic listening, respect, and shared decision-making in the management of psychiatric conditions. I enjoy designing treatment plans that incorporate healthy lifestyle modifications to promote full mind and body health and wellness. I am committed to open communication and developing a personalized approach to manage psychiatric conditions and reduce the stigma surrounding mental health.
I am a state licensed and nationally board-certified Physician Assistant. I attended Purdue University where I received a Bachelor of Science in Health Sciences with a Minor in Psychology, and then went on to study at Saint Louis University where I earned a Master of Medical Science. I have clinical training and hands-on experience treating patients in a variety of settings including psychiatry, internal medicine, family medicine, women’s health, cardiology, hematology/oncology, emergency medicine, pediatrics, and women’s health.
I strive to provide quality care to help patients manage anxiety, depression, mood disorders, and substance use disorders by cultivating trust, understanding, and empathy.
