Personal Statement

My primary interests are Nutrition and Lifestyle Psychiatry, Cultural Psychiatry and the interface of Religion and Spirituality with Psychiatry. I love guiding patients to achieve healing using a domains of health approach- addressing Nutrition, Sleep, Relaxation, Movement and Connectedness/ Purpose. I also practice Palliative Care on the inpatient service at UWMC and bring my skills and expertise from Psychiatry into this area of medicine. It is a privilege to be able to work with patients who are facing challenging illnesses and are often nearing the end of their life.
