I aim to create a nonjudgemental space that is open, creative and healing.
I am originally from the Midwest, graduating from the University of Kansas School of Medicine in 2014. I completed my residency at the University of Utah, where I served as a chief resident. My work has included consult and liaison psychiatry, inpatient psychiatry, psychiatric emergency rooms, as well as outpatient treatment.
I have an interest in the biology of resilience, and enjoy teaching. I have given lectures to medical students, PA students and community providers on topics such as sleep, capacity, delirium, dementia, personality disorders, psychedelics and substance use. I am currently an assistant professor at OHSU, continuing my work with medical students and residents.
I have training in focused therapy for anxiety, OCD and depression. My therapy approach is existential in basis, utilizing CBT principles and integrating mindfulness practices.
I strive to be practical, thoughtful, while practicing evidence based medicine. My goal is to allow one to be optimally positioned to focus on the psychological and environmental underpinnings of distress. I provide a professional, personalized, private, treatment experience that involves both medication and therapy. My goals of treatment are to be responsive, thoughtful and provide education about diagnosis and treatment.
