My Passion for Healthcare

Unlike many of my colleagues, I did not have childhood aspirations to be a doctor. In fact, my family and friends were surprised when I decided to apply to medical school. The decision to become a psychiatrist was much easier, as I was fascinated by the human brain and our behaviors. And looking back, I was always curious to learn more about others including stressors, struggles and motivations. I was touched by the field of geriatric psychiatry during my second year of psychiatry training at the North Texas VA Hospital. And I spent the remainder of my training caring for senior adults.

My Clinical Focus

I specialize in geriatric psychiatry and spend much of my clinical time teaching and training psychiatry residents and medical students to care for senior adults. I love working with families and caring for patients that are struggling with late-life mood and anxiety symptoms as well as changes in memory and behavior. It is my pleasure to assist patients (and families) with late-life transitions including retirement, medical illness and loss while aging gracefully. I have a passion for promoting health and wellness while minimizing medications with a focus on long-term brain health.
