You've noticed how it's getting more difficult to get through the day? Sometimes life can feel heavy, like you’re just going through the motions. By this point, you’ve probably already tried a few things to help yourself. But don’t give up. Because underneath the anxiety and depression, there is another part of you that’s waiting to emerge. Of course, it can be hard to turn things around on your own. So it's OK to reach out for help.

Psychiatry seeks to relieve mental struggles through medication and therapy; however, it should be used as a tool instead of a solution. Understanding our psyche and learning to work with it is the key to strengthening our minds and being in control of our emotions. In today's busy society our brains can become addicted to the constant stimulation of our lives which can leave us feeling mismanaged, anxious, and depressed. I believe treatment should be individualized & it is my goal to partner with you to achieve your mental health goals and put you back in control of your own life and achieve the happiness everyone is deserving of.

The judicious use of prescription medications can be an important component of any recovery plan. My aspiration to make high-quality psychiatric care more accessible began when I was unable to find a psychiatric provider who would take my (very good) insurance, so after gaining experience at an early psychosis clinic, a mental health crisis clinic, and dual diagnosis programs, I started a solo practice in 2017 that expanded into a group practice from 2019 to 2021. Today, I continue to see patients from my solo practice. I bill insurance directly whenever possible.

People come to me with a wide range of problems, often not clear about why they are suffering. They may feel anxious, depressed, empty or confused; they may be having difficulty with relationships or work but not understand why. I will meet with you to evaluate what the problem is and how best to approach treatment. Why choose a psychoanalytically oriented psychiatrist? I believe that in a nonjudgmental atmosphere you will be able to explore why you are stuck in old patterns or feel unhappy in your life and relationships. I will help you gain insight so that you can feel freer, more confident, and happier.

About Psychiatrists, meds and Psychiatric Nurses.

A Psychiatrist in San Francisco is a qualified medical doctor who specializes in treating mental health issues and diagnosable disorders.

San Francisco Psychiatrists differ from other mental health professionals in that they may prescribe medication as well as practice psychotherapy in treatment. Sometimes, Psychiatrists form part of a clinical team in which they will diagnose and prescribe, while psychologists or therapists provide the client's psychotherapy.

As part of a clinical assessment, Psychiatrists may conduct physical examinations, take blood tests, and order and interpret lab tests and brain image scans, such as CT scans, CAT Scans, and MRIs.

The field of psychiatry in San Francisco has many sub-specialties, including pediatric psychiatry. Those who work with the elderly are called geriatric psychiatrists.

Other related sub-specialties include cognition psychiatry, addiction psychiatry, psychosomatic, forensic, reproductive medicine specialties, psychopharmacology , psychiatric genetics, neuroimaging, and clinical neurophysiology.

Psychiatric nurse practitioners in San Francisco, or mental health nurse practitioners, generally have an MS degree in nursing (MSN) and a number of years of training to become certified.
