I was always interested in how human beings think, interact with each other, and behave in a wide variety of social settings. I initially wanted to be a pediatrician, but quickly learned that psychiatry was the career for me. One of my mentors noted that I spent more time learning about the social aspects of my patients, including their family dynamics, interests, and who they were as people, rather than “6 year old girl with acute exacerbation of asthma”. I went on to train with the late Dr. Elizabeth Weller at The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, who really cultivated my interests in child and adolescent psychiatry, and provided me with extensive knowledge in diagnosing and treating psychiatric disorders. Dr. Weller stressed the importance of understanding the biological, social, and psychological factors that impact people’s lives, which I continue to stress in my own practice.
While I have treated a variety of psychiatric diagnoses, I am specifically interested in depression, anxiety, and college mental health. I place a lot of value on finding non-pharmacological methods to promote good health. During my free time, I enjoy hiking, cycling, and traveling.
