Work Experiences / Areas of Interest
Psychiatry is an exciting field of medicine offering unique challenges to the developing physician. At the VA, I have the great opportunity to work with residents as they grow their clinical skills, not just in pharmacologic management, but also in psychotherapeutic interventions. It is a pleasure to collaborate with training Psychiatrists as they master their skill set and come to a greater understanding of treating the individual as a whole, considering the broader context of development, current stressors, and attachments.
Current Clinical Work
I am currently working at the Boise VA outpatient Psychiatry clinic, as well as teaching and supervising Psychiatry residents.
