I'ma board-certified psychiatrist who specializes in the treatment of anorexia, bulimia, and other eating disorders and maintains a private practice in Portland, Oregon. I graduated from the University of South Florida College of Medicine in 1997. My interest in eating disorders began in medical school, where I spent time working on the hospital's inpatient eating disorder unit. In addition to completing a post-graduate fellowship in eating disorders and serving as medical director of a residential treatment center, I'm a member of the Academy for Eating Disorders and have published a number of professional articles and book chapters in the field. My professional interests include integrated psychodynamic psychotherapy in the treatment of eating disorders, the impact of psychiatric medications on eating and weight, using eating disorders research as a psychoeducational tool, and practice-based research.
