About Me

I am a psychiatrist who specializes in using a combination of therapy and medications to help people through the emotional part of a serious illness like cancer. Receiving a diagnosis and going through treatment can lead to feelings that people may not have had before, like anxiety or depression. This makes an already challenging time more complex. I consider it a privilege to work with my patients and help alleviate some of this distress.
