Personal Statement

As a consulting psychiatrist working in the Behavioral Health Integration Program, I work in an Integrated Care model where I work closely with primary care providers, social workers and other clinical staff members to help provide evidence-based mental health care in an outpatient primary care setting. This collobaration between providers allows for improved access to mental health care that is patient-centered and focuses on whole person care. Through my work in Integrated Care, I have also developed an interest in Population Health, with a particular desire to improve our population approach to mental health conditions. It has been a privilege to work with an interdiplinary team of providers who are dedicated to delivering quality mental health care for all of our patients.​​
