Personal Statement

I have a passion for treating geriatric patients with new onset and longstanding mental health disorders and cognitive disorders. My primary interests are depression and psychotic disorders, including when these symptoms complicate cognitive disorders. I value sharing the life histories of patients and families, the challenging complexity of medical issues as they interact with psychiatric presentations, and assisting patients and families in discussions about advanced care planning and end of life issues. I have particular expertise in working with those living in long term care settings where she does consultation work at several area nursing homes.
