I have long been fascinated by the mind and am grateful for the opportunity to apply my knowledge of psychiatry to make a difference in my patients’ lives. I am an empathetic listener who believes everyone has a story to tell. I frequently employ brief psychotherapy during my sessions as part of my clients’ care. I enjoy helping people make positive lifestyle changes to complement their treatment plans. I am committed to reducing the stigma associated with mental illness and raising public awareness of psychiatric conditions.
I am a licensed and certified physician assistant. I was raised in the Chicago suburbs and attended Vanderbilt University where I received my Bachelor of Arts in Biological Sciences and Spanish. I went on to study at Midwestern University in Downers Grove where I earned a Master’s in Physician Assistant Studies. During my physician assistant program I received clinical training in psychiatry, family medicine, women’s health, pediatrics, and internal medicine. I enjoy helping patients manage their mood disorders, anxiety, and substance use disorders.
