As a Child Psychiatrist, there is no better satisfaction than allowing the opportunity to challenge the maladaptive views of children that I work with about how life should or could be by sharing with them my own life story of overcoming adversity, and modeling this for them. I am living proof of the doubts that they can overcome and proud to be serving on the board of Haven Neighborhood Services.
