Welcome to my profile in Psychology Today. I am a Stanford-trained, board-certified psychiatrist who has provided mental health care to a variety of populations over the last 18 years. In my private practice, I see adults over 18 years old, and I have expertise with diagnoses, such as anxiety disorders, PTSD, depression, bipolar disorder, and schizophrenia. When I first meet new patients, they are frequently unsure what kind of treatment they might benefit from. By providing a warm and collaborative environment, I help the patients understand their needs and identify treatment options, such a medications, therapy, or a combination of both. I strongly believe that ‘no patient is a diagnosis’ – instead, we are all a complex combination of genetic predisposition, upbringing, and other influences that make us the people we are.

I am a board-certified adult psychiatrist whose practice is shaped by three core values: Caring, Comprehensive, and Confidential. Caring - Medical care too often makes patients to feel like they are just a number - dismissed, rushed, not heard, and not understood. One of my core values as a psychiatrist is to establish a caring treatment relationship with my patients that is guided by my patients' priorities and preferences, and is characterized by trust and open dialogue. I believe the quality of my relationship with my patient is the foundation to treatment success.

I treat adult patients for any kind of psychiatric or mental health issue. I also invite patients who may not have any particular disorder or condition who are interested in personal growth and development. I use three approaches: 1) psychotherapy only, brief or long term; 2) a combination of psychotherapy and psychopharmacology; and 3) medication management without psychotherapy. The latter is especially applicable if you are already in psychotherapy with another therapist. Lastly, I provide psychiatric and substance abuse evaluations whether requested by a patient, a court, or by a licensing institution.

As a board certified psychiatrist, I treat psychiatric conditions using the bio-psycho-social framework. Psychiatric illnesses may have biological causes, like thyroid problems, the effects of chemotherapy, strokes, or genetic predisposition. Psychiatric issues may also have psychological causes, such as the lack of coping skills, difficulty processing situations, or early life experiences. Finally, psychiatric disorders may have sociological explanations: overwhelming expectations of one's social setting, perhaps, or drastic changes in one's environment.

As a Board Certified psychiatrist, I practice the biopsychosocial model of psychiatry in which biological, psychological and social factors are all taken into consideration in order to implement the most comprehensive treatment plan for the individual. I strive to stay up to date with the ever changing field of psychiatric medications while at the same time not lose the skill and art of psychotherapy. I graduated from the Stanford University Psychiatry Residency where I served as Chief Resident of Psychiatry in the academic year 2003-2004. I also completed a one year fellowship at U.C.

People are complex. A person is not a disorder, a disease, or a diagnosis. Throughout our lives we find ourselves in circumstances that bring our attention to the fact that we could know ourselves better and if we did, we could be happier and more balanced in our lives. My treatment philosophy centers on the belief that therapy can be valuable for everyone, particularly at times of intense change, loss, or personal trauma. With expertise in both psychopharmacology and individual psychotherapy, I maintain a patient centered, integrative approach to treating the whole person.
