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 collaboration 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 interests in Population Health and Quality Improvement, with a particular desire to improve our population approach to mental health conditions and the ways in which we can improve our processes to enhance the quality of care being delivered. It is been a privilege to work with an interdisciplinary team of providers who are dedicated to delivering quality mental health care and I am grateful to work at a healthcare organization that is devoted to improving the health of the public.​​
