I am a psychiatrist with professional interests in medication management and how medications work in the brain; mental health therapy and talk therapy; mood, anxiety and cognitive disorders; and patient education and teaching. I offer face-to-face virtual visits for a variety of health services and conditions.
I am a consulting psychiatrist who sees patients for:
- a diagnostic assessment and/or
- short-term treatment.
As a psychiatric consultant, I most often see patients for only one to three visits to make a diagnosis and begin treatment. After your care plan has been established, I will transition your care back to your primary care provider for ongoing management, consulting with your primary care provider from time to time if I have questions about your care plan.
Best part of my work: Seeing patients make progress in their lives.
Why I became a psychiatrist: I grew up in a small community where a lot of people knew one another. I would hear praise about my mother, a psychiatrist, and the impact she had on people.
What I tell friends and family: Do regular aerobic exercise, practice mindfulness and take care of yourself. Use thought-stopping techniques for anxiety.
How I spend my free time: Cycling, exploring nature, yoga, traveling, reading about electric vehicles.
What patients say about me: They have appreciation for the help I provide. I've been told by a patient that I am one of the best doctors in the country.
Practice philosophy: Comprehensive, integrative care.
