I attended psychiatry residency training at Northwestern University in Chicago, IL, where I also completed a forensic psychiatry fellowship. After my fellowship, I joined the faculty and medical staff at Northwestern. In addition to teaching and supervising medical students and residents, I provided care to a diverse set of individuals with disorders related to mood, trauma, anxiety, attention and psychosis. I also performed forensic psychiatric evaluations related to issues of disability, workers’ compensation, competency, fitness for duty, and the insanity defense. While I greatly enjoyed my work at Northwestern, I desired to focus more on direct patient care, which led me to join Chicago Psychiatry Associates.
My current practice includes the treatment of individuals with a variety of clinical concerns with a specialized focus on mood and attentional disorders. I value a thorough diagnostic assessment in order to provide individualized care. Because I am skilled in utilizing biological treatments, such as psychiatric medication, as well as psychotherapy, I can provide my patients with multiple treatment options. I emphasize a thorough discussion of my diagnostic impressions, and I strongly encourage patients to ask questions and share in treatment decisions. My goal is for patients to feel comfortable and confident about their care.
In addition to treatment, I am also available for forensic psychiatric evaluations and consultations in both civil and criminal matters.
