She is a Clinical Psychologist and Associate Professor of Psychiatry and Obstetrics & Gynecology in the Georgetown School of Medicine. She has worked exclusively in the field of perinatal mental health since creating her own postdoctoral fellowship in this area in 2002. Since that time, she has developed and implemented numerous clinical, academic and research programs to respond to the unmet mental health needs of perinatal women. In 2008, she founded the Women’s Mental Health Program at MedStar Georgetown University Hospital in response to a critical need for specialized care at this institution and in the region.
