I am board certified in Psychiatry. I graduated from and completed my psychiatry residency at the University of Minnesota Medical School. I provide psychiatric evaluations and psychopharmacology services to the general adult population, and I have a special interest in working with refugees, immigrants and people from different cultures.

I chose to go into psychiatry because I want to help patients with mental illness. I try to treat all of my patients with respect, listening to their stories without judgment and encouraging them to make the best decisions in a treatment plan. Having an outpatient practice allows me to provide continuity of care, and that's something I especially enjoy.

Outside of my practice, I like to spend my free time with family, traveling and reading.

I am a member of the American Psychiatric Association (APA) and the Minnesota Psychiatric Society (MPS).

Please note: This provider serves only adults ages 18+. Patients must have been seen by a HealthPartners, Stillwater Medical Group, Hudson Hospital & Clinic, Westfields Hospital (outpatient) or Amery Hospital (outpatient) Primary or Specialty Care Provider in the last 2 years in order to schedule a new patient appointment in HealthPartners therapy or psychiatry.
