    What I Do

    I strive to provide holistic care to my patients that includes caring for mental health, physical health and other social factors. I enjoy getting to know my patients and partnering with them to develop a plan of care that fits their specific needs and goals, through medication, therapy, lifestyle changes, support systems and other interventions. I believe each patient is unique, and I am passionate about normalizing mental health treatment and reducing the stigma associated with mental health disorders.

    My clinical interests include substance use disorders, anxiety, depression, schizophrenia, bipolar disorder and co-occurring disorders.

    Why I Love My Work

    The opportunity to assist individuals with their mental health needs in the community I grew up in is both exciting and rewarding for me. I enjoy collaborating with other providers who have different backgrounds.

    Getting to Know Me

    Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends. I also enjoy car racing, Pinterest projects and flower gardening.
