I have been interested in medicine and understanding the mysteries of the brain since childhood. My mother was a psychiatric nurse and worked in a community outreach clinic for  underserved and ethnically/culturally diverse chronically ill patients, and sometimes I visited her worksite. After entering medical school and completing residency, my early childhood interests of medicine and curiosity about brain development, mental health and mental illness and resiliency lead to choosing a career in child and adolescent psychiatry. Working in the UCH psychiatry clinic affords me the opportunity to collaborate with and mentor physicians and mental health professionals who are pursuing additional training. By providing culturally sensitive, community-inclusive psychotherapy training, including the use of medicine, play therapy, and collaboration with traditional healers and other professionals, our residents gain valuable experience in working with individuals, families, caregivers, children, and young adults.

I have been involved in providing clinical training for Social Work Interns for over 30 years.  I really enjoy seeing Social  Work Interns learn about the biopsychosocial approach to mental illness and mental health.  The opportunity to participate in the professional growth of Social Work Interns as they learn the diagnostic process and treatment process using a variety of treatment interventions and modalities is very fulfilling to me.  I am very excited that the Interns participate in the classes with the psychiatric residents to learn about personality disorders,  addiction, cognitive behavior therapy, dialectical behavior therapy, family treatment, cross-cultural psychiatry, and development.  I am so excited to be included in a learning-teaching environment in which professionals work collaboratively for the best patient care possible.  I love to teach, I love to supervise, and I love to be a part of the learning process.

Having enjoyed the practice of psychiatry since 1991, it is an honor for me to have the opportunity to help train the next generation of mental health professionals while providing excellent care for patients at UCH. I am fortunate to work with such a wide diversity of patients and a group of very dedicated and talented faculty, staff and trainees. I enjoy the emphasis our clinic places on the combination of psychotherapy and pharmacology.

While I have experience working with patients of all ages, I specialize in Child and Adolescent Psychiatry. My main interests include recovery from trauma and working with refugees and immigrant groups. I am fortunate to direct our refugee mental health program.
