Meet the Providers
I am a military psychiatrist transitioning from the Army. I am married, living in Georgetown TX. I was born, raided and educated in Florida. My interests and hobbies include reading, podcasts, hiking, kayaking, socializing with friends, and national/international traveling. I received a BS in History and Biologic Sciences at Florida State University, followed by a dual MD and MPH program at the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine. I completed my psychiatric residency at Tripler Army Medical Center.
I provide a comprehensive team-based psychiatric evaluation and treatment approach, including the patient, family (if amenable/appropriate), and therapeutic team. I strive to ensure evidence-based, empathic psychiatric care. Be assured you will receive a thorough, patient, and thoughtful evaluation with appropriate recommendations and treatment including psychotropic medications, medical work-up, and therapy.
I am very personable and like to keep things as real as possible. That being said, I will always encourage and support them, unconditionally.
I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker. My approach to therapy is psychodynamic with emotions-based processing, interactive feedback, Psychoeducation, CBT frameworks, and DBT frameworks. I love to work with young adults navigating life after school, and looking for their place and purpose in the world.
As someone who struggled with depression as a young person, I felt like no one fully understood. Therefore, I strive to create a space where humans can feel seen, heard and validated. Life can throw some crazy adventures and struggles our way which makes finding a space to feel safe extremely difficult but so necessary. As a counselor, I see my clients as the experts. They are the only ones who know what their life is like and how it has impacted them. My role focuses on looking at all the puzzles pieces, seeing how they fit together and reframing them in a way that clients can see how those pieces impact each other and their lives as a whole.
Coming to a therapist can seem scary. Often we perceive that if we ignore our problems they will “go away.” Problem is, they don’t go away; they get worse and impact other parts of our lives. My perspective as a therapist is that this is a conversation; you are the director of your life, I’m here to provide support.
I was born in California at Edwards Air Force Base where I lived for two years with my family prior to my father leaving the USAF. After a short two year stay in Colorado, my family moved again to Massachusetts where I lived until I relocated to Texas with my wife. I have three children, a dog and a cat. I enjoy all things Star Trek and like spending my time building models.
Searching for help from healthcare providers can be one of the hardest steps to get started with treatment. Once you make that step, it is my job and goal to make sure you are supported and assisted with anything you may need during that time.
I can truly say that healthcare is my passion and helping others is my biggest goal. I enjoy patient interaction most importantly and ensuring that the flow and management of healthcare facilities are efficient and helpful.
