Being a psychiatrist for 20 plus years, I have learned that a trusting relationship with a patient is more important than any cutting edge medication. The best medication will become outdated in 10 years or less. But a doctor's compassion will never go out of style.
I have been a clinician and teacher in California for the last decade and a half. I have been equally passionate about clinical practice and academic work. I have had academic appointments at UCLA, UCSD, Touro, Pacific, and Cal Northern. I believe my work in academics helps me to stay on the cutting edge of psychiatric treatment modalities.
Besides standard psychiatric practices, I specialize in autism, special education, ADHD, and psychodynamic psychotherapy.
