  • I am a board-certified psychiatrist who treats patients over 18 years in an outpatient setting. I completed my B.A. At Washington University in St. Louis in 2005 with concentrations in Spanish and International Studies. I speak both Spanish and Portuguese fluently. I achieved my M.D. from St. Louis University School of Medicine in 2009. I was granted achievement awards in both Psychiatry and Infectious Disease at graduation. I completed my Psychiatry residency at Washington University School of Medicine in 2013. I have conducted research in vaccine development (T. cruzi), collaborative care in Mental Health, medication trials among patients with Parkinson's Disease (Pimavanserin), and the treatment of psychogenic movement disorders. My practice offers outpatient treatment with medication management and evidence-based psychotherapeutic modalities.
