I am a University of Washington and UCSF-trained addiction and general psychiatrist and scientist. I carry a small panel of patients so that I can best deliver comprehensive and personalized care. I specialize in treating complex addiction issues, dual-diagnoses such as ADHD and depression combined with substance use, and behavioral addictions such as gambling. I tailor treatment based on the individual, and I have expertise with both abstinence and harm-reduction approaches to recovery. In designing a comprehensive, individualized treatment plan, I consider the most up-to-date evidence-based methods and latest research.

Psychiatrist, MD

I am a Yale, UCLA and UCSF-trained addiction psychiatrist. I provide confidential, evidence-based treatment for mental health issues and addictions, including opioids, alcohol, cocaine, amphetamines, tobacco, cannabis, and behavioral addictions like internet, gaming, and gambling. These are NOT moral or character failings, but rather medical conditions that can affect anyone at any time, from any walk of life, with oftentimes serious personal, relational, and professional consequences. Though validated treatments exist, these are often underutilized due to medical providers’ discomfort, lack of education, and/or stigma.
