Years at Tulane:
I am interested in providing and promoting mental health care in different environments. My current position is medical director of the New Orleans Therapeutic Day Program. This is a joint venture with the school district where we will provide mental health treatment to children and adolescents with emotional and behavioral disabilities.
I also have experience working as a consulting psychiatrist in a family health center. My other interest is in interpersonal communication and professionalism in regards to the therapeutic milieu as well as with trainees rotating in different specialties to further enhance patient care.
