My Areas of Practice

I am a consultation-liason psychiatrist with specialization in psycho-oncology, which is mental health treatment for cancer patients.  I trained at the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, in Boston, and have worked in a variety of outpatient settings as well. At Park Nicollet, I see adult outpatients  at the Frauenshuh Cancer Center, as well as general medical inpatients at Methodist hospital.  I do mostly psychiatric evaluations and medication management, and sometimes brief problem-solving counseling.  My focus is on helping patients and families cope with the emotional impact of medical illness, and prescribing medications for problems such as depression, anxiety, fatigue, insomnia, and memory or mental status changes.  My practice philosophy is to take a "whole person" approach that combines the best that medications and talk therapies have to offer with other integrative approaches when appropriate. I also help patients and families prepare for terminal illness if needed. I refer patients who are seeking ongoing psychotherapy and/or integrative treatments to other clinicians at Park Nicollet, or in the community, who offer those services.

Personal

I grew up near Philadelphia, went to college and medical school in California, and then trained and worked in Boston until moving here in 2012.  Outside of work, I enjoy time with my family, traveling, and creative writing.  I have been studying Indian spiritual philosophy for over 30 years, and write on that topic.  I also collaborate with the development of Auroville, an intentional community in Tamil Nadu (south India) inspired by the ideals of human unity, international cooperation, sustainable living, and non-denominational spirituality.
