Personal Statement

I am an Associate Professor in the UW Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences at the University of Washington. I am currently on faculty at Harborview Medical Center on the inpatient psychiatry service. My specific area of expertise is in the evaluation and treatment of psychiatric disorders across the female life cycle, including psychiatric conditions through pregnancy and postpartum period. I am passionate about helping and supporting moms navigate challenges related to reproductive losses, pregnancy, birth, and the postpartum period.
