About Me

As a clinical neuropsychologist, I assess patients for cognitive and psychiatric changes due to illness or brain injury. I believe that an attentive and thorough assessment leads to the proper identification of cognitive strengths and weaknesses, which I use to develop individualized treatment plans. Regardless of diagnosis, I think it’s important to consider what patients are capable of doing and what strategies can be employed to help them feel they are still contributing to their environment and reaching their goals.

I truly enjoy getting to know my patients and creating strong patient-physician relationships. I strive to view my patients through a biopsychosocial lens, recognizing biological factors as well as psychological – mood, personality, and behavior – and social factors – cultural, familial, and socioeconomic identities – to create a more holistic and well-rounded plan of care.

In my free time, I like to enjoy a good cup of coffee and spend time with family and friends.
