Patients come to see me when they experience emotional pain and need help figuring out how to improve their lives as part of a quest to feel better. Sometimes a problem has built up over time and reaches a saturation point. It may relate to work or school, to a love or family relationship, or to something completely unexpected--a layoff, breakup, accident, sudden illness or even a death--that uncovers a long neglected area of development.

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.

Psychiatrist, MD

I enjoy working with individuals on a wide spectrum of issues, from those facing an acute crisis or obstacle in life, to those who identify with having a more severe and persistent mental illness or struggle, including depression, bipolar disorder, PTSD, and schizophrenia. I am open to working with those considered complex who have chronic physical health problems as well. Ideally those individuals drawn to me are interested in doing deeper healing work beyond symptom amelioration, who are motivated to discover the roots of their symptoms and are willing to do the work to bring more balance and peace into their lives.

I see my patients first and foremost in a humanistic way as people, not simply as patients or their diagnoses. As such, I offer patients comprehensive treatment, not just from a neurobiological perspective, but also a from a humanistic one. I approach my patients with compassion, respect and a commitment to confidentiality. Some of the biggest obstacles to attainting self-awareness and self-acceptance are deeply buried feelings of guilt and shame. Working with a psychotherapist you trust, who is curious, empathic and understanding can help you expand your capacity for self-curiosity, self-awareness and self-acceptance, which in turn can help you expand your capacity to: •examine, understand & change problematic patterns in your life; •make choices freely & actively, instead of reactively; •ultimately lead a more thoughtful, authentic & fulfilling life.

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