Psychiatry; Consultation-Liaison Psychiatry

I am a psychiatrist who provides adolescents and young adults (ages 13-35) and their families with psychological support and education as they confront the challenges of a cancer diagnosis and its treatment. Adolescence and young adulthood are important life stages: During this time, one develops a unique identity and builds relationships with others as an individual.

I encourage my patients to view the cancer experience as a climb up Mount Everest, and I consider myself to be a member of their mountaineering team. An adolescent or young adult diagnosed with cancer may feel like the future is suddenly unknown and too vast to conquer — I work with my patients so they can find their own unique path to the summit.
