I am a psychiatrist who specializes in psycho-oncology and geriatric psychiatry. I see people with all types of cancer but have a particular interest in helping people with brain tumors and older adults with cancer. I work in both inpatient and outpatient settings.
In inpatient settings, I focus on delirium. This is a state of confusion that can happen in people who are ill. I also help people manage such symptoms as depression, anxiety, fatigue, and sleep disturbances. In my outpatient practice, I see people who are dealing with depression, anxiety, cognitive changes, fatigue, and other psychosocial distress.
In my research, I study ways to manage cancer- and treatment-related cognitive changes. I work on the dissemination of screening methods for delirium and other cognitive changes across care settings and disciplines. I am working on a communication skills programs for doctors who treat older adults with cancer.
I also supervise fellows, residents, nurse practitioner students, and medical students who rotate through the Psychiatry Service.
