Biography

I was born in Fairfax, VA, but grew up in rural Maryland. For undergrad I went to St. John’s College in Annapolis, MD to pursue the Great Books Program.  After doing graduate work in philosophy and mathematics, and doing a post-bac premed program, I went to medical school at the Keck School of Medicine at The University of Southern California. 

I am an adult psychiatrist that is also fellowship trained in forensic psychiatry. Following fellowship, I spent five years developing the Center for Clinical Neuroscience at Yellowbrick, a residential treatment program for emerging adults (ages 18 – 30), where I focused on novel treatment modalities and advanced psychodynamic psychotherapeutic training. I am particularly interested in treatment-resistant depression and in developing novel treatment modalities to address this epidemic. In 2014, I returned to UVA to teach some of the new techniques that I had learned since fellowship and to begin a treatment-resistant depression clinic, which started with the acquisition of a transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) system in 2015.

Music is a passion of mine, listening to it, playing it, etc. I have an unwieldy record collection. I don’t think it’s clinically accurate to call it hoarding, but when the records have to take over the master bedroom, there may be a problem.
