“I am passionate about delivering holistic care to my patients. I strongly believe in lifestyle changes prior to introducing medications when appropriate. I take an individual approach to each of my patient’s plan of care to help meet their own health goals and be the best and healthiest version of themselves. I believe that a person’s mental health is just as important as their physical health. I have a lot of experience in treating anxiety and depression in teenagers, adults and geriatric patients. Other areas of medicine I enjoy are weight management, type II diabetes, and thyroid disorders. What I love about family medicine is really getting to know my patient and their families which helps me to provide personalized care.”

Her interests include watching her girls play lacrosse and horseback riding, running/exercising, spending time with her family on the boat surfing and swimming.
