About Me

I work at the intersection of physical and mental health, identifying and addressing the psychiatric needs of patients living with chronic medical problems. I’m passionate about supporting our patients on their medical journeys by addressing their behavioral health needs. I also aim to break down barriers to psychiatric treatment by assisting non-psychiatric providers to better diagnose and treat their patients’ psychiatric needs.

During our initial visit, my patients can expect a comprehensive consultation that explores how their medical illnesses and their behavioral health needs are affecting each other. I send a report to their referring medical providers with diagnostic impressions and treatment recommendations. At Ohio State, I provide both direct (face-to-face) consultations and indirect consultations (e-consults and collaborative care services supporting non-psychiatric providers).

I enjoy working at Ohio State because of the endless potential that comes from working with so many talented people.

In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my family, my pets and technology.
