PROFESSIONAL HISTORY

I am a bilingual (Spanish-speaking) child and adolescent psychiatrist with experience in community mental health. I have a special interest in immigration and acculturation in the adolescent population. I believe passionately that if we identify mental or behavioural health symptoms at an early age and attempt to intervene, manage or treat, we can provide patients with the opportunities to have a better quality of life into adulthood. I have learned that educating families is as important as treating the patient. Family support and understanding provide a foundation to achieve a successful outcome. I am grateful to have the opportunity to be part of a community of providers working with children, adolescents and families.
