Professional Background

I am a physician, psychiatrist and child and adolescent psychiatrist. My clinical interests are in the integration of specialist psychiatric services and expertise into primary care; the management and treatment of co-occurring psychiatric disorders in those with autism spectrum disorders; and providing treatment, assistance and advice for children and adolescents in the child welfare system and their families.

I attended medical school in London (Guy's Hospital), and completed general and child/adolescent psychiatry at the Bethlem Royal and Maudsley hospital. After moving to the US, I also completed clinical training at University of Alabama-Birmingham. I have worked in private practice, community mental health, forensic practice, state hospitals, and academic settings, including an extensive period of time as student affairs dean in a medical school.
