My specialties include: •Depression; •Anxiety; • Cancer diagnosis, treatment, living & coping with cancer ; •Being a family member, friend, parent, sibling, child or caregiver of someone with cancer ; •Self-confidence & self-esteem issues; •Relationship & interpersonal issues; •Existential issues (finding meaning in our lives knowing that we do not live forever); •Issues of death & dying.
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.

So, I became a Registered Nurse in 2010 and worked in many different specialties including emergency, intensive care, neurosurgery, and cancer treatment.
If a person is depressed, anxious, or have another mental health concern, they are more likely to not take care of themselves in other ways. This realization helped to make my decision to become a Psychiatric-Mental Health Nurse Practitioner in 2021. As a clinician, there is no better feeling than changing someone's life and playing a part in their happiness. Common diagnoses that I prefer treating include depression, anxiety, schizophrenia, and bipolar disorder. Ultimately, I enjoy helping clients with any problem that they have and working to improve their lives and mental state; together.

I am a Columbia and UCSF trained psychiatrist and psychotherapist working in Oakland. I believe psychotherapy helps individuals attain greater self-understanding, feel more fully alive, and develop stronger relationships. I utilize a variety of modalities, but with an emphasis on psychodynamic psychotherapy. This means we will explore your conscious and unconscious thoughts and motivations. Medication is also a tool that can be helpful, and I prescribe it where indicated, in collaboration with the goals and preferences of my patients.

My psychiatry practice is focused on you and how you can best achieve your goals, whether that is medication, psychotherapy, lifestyle changes, or a combination of all three. Let's work together to help you get 'unstuck'. As a psychiatrist I am comfortable with prescribing medications as well as therapy. The first half of my residency training was in the Family Medicine Dept. at the University of Iowa, and the second was in Psychiatry at the University of South Alabama, where I am an Adjunct Professor. Psychiatry was the natural choice because I enjoy having the time to listen and understand in order to personalize recommendations.
