I became interested in psychiatry early on while studying psychology in college. From my early experiences in medical training, it became clear to me that I had a natural ability to listen and provide empathetic care for my patients.
I believe in using evidence-based medicine and working collaboratively with patients toward a common goal. From living and working across the country, I have gained a diverse perspective and want to create a comfortable and professional relationship with patients. Providing education and counseling regarding psychiatric treatment is an important aspect of the field and I strive to accomplish it in every visit.
Completing my Adult Psychiatry training at the University of Kansas Medical Center, I am interested in a range of psychiatric conditions. Primary interests include Depressive and Anxiety Disorders, as well as specific concerns within the LGBTQ community. Throughout my training I have been consistently told that my unique ability to make a patient comfortable and heard is one of my greatest strengths. I am offering medication management appointments, and am excited to work with my patients toward a healthier future.
