My Passion for Healthcare

I always knew I wanted to work with children and my experiences as a camp counselor, nanny, babysitter and elementary school science teacher volunteer solidified this decision. I chose to study both pediatrics and child psychiatry so I could learn about the whole child, including child development, nutrition & growth, childhood illnesses, psychological stages and family relationships. I am also fascinated with the brain and all of its intricacies and effects on human behavior. I believe that we can use this knowledge to help patients heal and improve their lives.

My Clinical Focus

I greatly enjoy working with children, teenagers and families. I believe that kids have the capacity to make positive changes and establish healthy habits for a lifetime. I specifically work with patients who have co-occurring pediatric physical illnesses and mental health concerns at Dell Children's Medical Center. I provide outpatient care for general mental health and behavioral concerns at Texas Child Study Center. My forensic psychiatry interest includes consulting on legal cases as an expert in psychiatry and child psychiatry topics. I also enjoy teaching residents and medical students.
