I enjoy practicing psychiatry from a holistic perspective, considering how biology, core beliefs, relationships and environment may be informing your current experience. I’m passionate about helping clients to feel empowered to create balance, stability, joy and connection in their lives using a combination of pharmacotherapy, psychotherapy and teaching. Initially, I’ll focus on creating a safe space and deeply listening to your story, and once we have gained insight into the factors impacting your experience, together we will come up with a dynamic treatment strategy that aligns with your priorities.

I specialize in treating patients with anxiety or Major Depressive Disorder (MDD). I believe mental health is a vital aspect of any individual's well-being, and I work to have every patient with depression be as symptom-free as possible and enjoy life to the fullest. I find Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) to be an essential treatment modality as it allows me to work with my patients and tailor individual treatment modalities specific to their symptoms, and relieve their suffering from depression or another psychological disorder. I believe that TMS can be an instrument as an alternative or additive to medications.

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. Psychiatric nurse practitioners are able to assess and diagnose mental health conditions and prescribe medication. San Francisco Psychiatric nurse practitioners also have training that enables them to include psychotherapy with treatment.
