Why Healthcare

Providing mental healthcare has been a passion for me since working as an intern at a substance abuse treatment center in New York City in graduate school. I have witnessed firsthand how mental health and substance abuse has affected people’s lives. I strive to assist my patient’s in living fulfilling, happy lives. Throughout my time working in the field I have made it my priority to help reduce the stigma of mental illness and to provide the best care for my patients.
