I have always found it to be an honor and privilege to partner with families in helping children and teens navigate this world that seems to get more complicated by the day. I have spent most of my career as a child and adolescent psychiatrist in a community mental health setting. I completed my adult psychiatry training and a fellowship in child and adolescent psychiatry at Wake Forest University.
In addition to my training in conventional psychiatry based in a biological model and medication management, I have an interest and have trained in Integrative Psychiatry, psychedelic medicine and ACT (Acceptance and Commitment Therapy).
I value in both my personal and professional lives the importance of a holistic approach to health, both mental and physical. I strive to incorporate a collaborative approach in offering psychiatric care, one that encompasses mind, body and spirit.
I’ve lived in Colorado since 2010, and enjoy outdoor activities like hiking, mountain biking and rafting. I adore my two golden retrievers, and also enjoy playing guitar at various open mic venues.
