Whether you're struggling with the effects of trauma, depression, anxiety, low self esteem, relationship issues, or other life stressors, I believe that the most powerful resources are the ones that you might not know you already possess. Finding those inner resources is sometimes best achieved with the help of a fellow human being who knows how to relate in ways that facilitate self discovery. Relationship is the foundation of psychiatry, and then specific evidence-based medication or psychotherapy techniques can be applied toward particular goals. I am committed to achieving the outcomes that you define for yourself.

The state of mental health among youth in the United States demands attention. The most basic definition of childhood mental health is " healthy social development, the achievement of development and emotional milestones, and effective coping skills, so all children have a positive quality of life and can function well in school, at home, and in their communities”. Effective treatment of mental, emotional, and behavioral health disorders is required for children to avoid the negative impact on the individual, their families, and society which can be devastating and long-lasting.

Two of the most important aspects of a relationship with my patients is that they know how much I care about them and the issues they come to me for. Secondly, I want my patients to know how much I value their trust in me. My patients can count on me to give them my presence, focus and attention as we work through their mental health issues. I believe that a healthy, caring relationship with a doctor that knows you--as a person--is vital to successful outcomes. In order to achieve these values I've chosen to primarily work at two concierge practices in San Diego.
