Insurances We Accept
I believe that by addressing mental health issues in childhood, young people can live healthier lives into adulthood. I work together with my colleagues at Ohio State’s Harding Hospital to develop personalized treatment plans that best fit the needs of each patient.

I strive to help my patients understand that being a mental health patient is just like being a patient with any other illness. Although many are anxious about what treatment will be like, they are quickly reassured when they see the warm, welcoming environment we provide.

Being a physician at an academic medical center also gives me the opportunity to improve mental health treatment through involvement in clinical research. I am currently doing research on specific medications — how they work and their side effects.

I am proud to be on the Healthgrades Honor Roll. Healthgrades is a national ranking system that identifies excellence within a medical field.
