About Me

I am a child, adolescent, and adult psychiatrist. Prior to beginning my medical career, I obtained a Bachelors of Science in Chemical Engineering from Massachusetts Institute of Technology in 2006.  I received my MD from the University of Michigan Medical School in 2010 and completed my residency in Adult Psychiatry at Northwestern Memorial Hospital in 2013.  I completed my fellowship in Child and Adolescent Psychiatry from Stanford University in 2015 and served as Chief Fellow from 2014-2015. I am board-certified in both Adult Psychiatry and Child and Adolescent Psychiatry. From 2015-2021, I worked at Stanford University Department of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry as a Clinical Assistant Professor. As part of my role at Stanford, I supervised trainees in psychotherapy and school consultation, and provided school consultation to Palo Alto Unified School District and Los Altos School District. From 2019-2020, I also helped to develop the Mental Health Team for the Stanford University School of Medicine. After having my first daughter in 2020, I endeavored on my greatest professional venture by running intensive experiential research on child development aka raising an infant and, now, toddler. Finding that I needed more research participants, I added a second daughter to my venture in 2022 and am gathering some wonderful data here :-). On top of full-time parenting, I continue to run my private practice part-time.
