From the Doctor

I strive to provide individualized care to all of my patients. I firmly believe in patients’ right to exercise free-will and self-determination. As a clinician, I work collaboratively with my patients to alleviate their psychological symptoms and help them identify treatment goals. I have extensive experience working with children and adolescents with psychological and physical illnesses.

I have three brothers and enjoy spending time with them and the rest of my family. In my spare time, I enjoy exercising and relaxing at local restaurants.
