Message to clients

I am a psychiatrist with fellowship training in child and adolescent psychiatry and extensive experience treating college and graduate students. As a psychiatrist, I can provide both therapy and medications to streamline and synchronize your care. If preferred, I can also work with your therapist or treatment team to provide medication management.
My office is conveniently located on the east side of Providence within walking distance from Brown University, Rhode Island School of Design, and Johnson and Wales University. In order for treatment to be both accessible and convenient, I offer telepsychiatry services in addition to in-person appointments.
