Assistant Professor of Clinical Psychiatry


Personal Statement  My focus as a faculty member in the division of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry is practicing and teaching the values specific to this profession: compassion, respecting boundaries, valuing individuals, practicing self-reflection, and maintaining a fascination with the myriad ways development can unfold. I strive to provide excellent care for the children of Indiana who are referred to my unit for adolescent boys at Larue Carter Hospital, which is also the place where I provide training for medical students, psychiatry residents and fellows.
