I am originally from Minnesota and completed my undergraduate training at the University of Minnesota with a Bachelor of Arts in Physiology. I went on to complete my medical degree at Creighton School of Medicine. I returned to Minnesota to complete my General Adult Psychiatry residency at Mayo Clinic, and subsequently completed my Child and Adolescent Psychiatry fellowship at Massachusetts General Hospital, where I served as Chief Resident and Fellow, respectively.

Throughout my training I have received extensive education and practice across the mental health care continuum (from outpatient to intensive programs to inpatient hospital treatment), for adults and children and adolescents, across various therapy modalities (pharmacotherapy, cognitive-behavioral therapy, psychodynamic psychotherapy, couple’s therapy, family therapy, etc.). I most enjoy working on a multi-disciplinary team incorporating biological, psychological, and social treatment factors, coupled with evidence-based treatments, to provide a most “complete” approach to treatment for patients and their families.

One particular research and clinical interest area of mine is exploring and leveraging the overlap between youth mental health and wellness and physical activity and sports participation.

Special clinical interests:

Youth athletes
Motivational enhancement
Anxiety
Affective mood disorders
