I am editor-in-chief of an international psychiatry newsletter with over 4000 subscribers, and I have taught psychiatry and addiction medicine at Stanford and UCLA.
I am a psychiatrist specializing in the treatment of adults and adolescents with addictions, mood disorders, personality disorders, ADHD, anxiety, and psychosis. I offer both medication management and psychotherapy. My approach to medications is a conservative one: I use medications (including Suboxone) only when patients have a full understanding of their risks and benefits, and I am willing to help patients taper or discontinue medications that provide little benefit, or which cause harm. At all times, I am eager to collaborate with other providers (therapists, counselors, alternative medicine specialists) to provide the optimal care for my patients.

I am an addiction and general psychiatrist. I practice evidence-based treatment and Medication Assisted Treatment for addictive disorders (Suboxone, Naltrexone). I believe in a patient-centered approach to treatment. I want to meet you where you are to craft a treatment plan that gets you to where you want to be. I can help you achieve control over your addiction (Opioids like Heroin, Oxycontin, Vicodin, alcohol, cocaine, methamphetamine, and/or tobacco). I am a general psychiatrist as well and you don't need to be addicted in order to seek help.

I also specialize in eating disorders, mood/anxiety disorders & substance abuse.
My ideal client could be a child, adolescent or an adult that wants and needs to get psychiatric care. I am an open-minded and holistic psychiatrist who takes the whole person into account when I am treating him/her. I practice the biopsychosocial model and I also understand that not all treatment modalities work for all people. I tailor treatment goals and strategies for each individual person. I am also a big believer in combining diet, exercise, acupuncture, reiki, massage, physical therapy, psychotherapy, hypnotherapy, psychoeducation, groups into the treatment plan and focusing on wellness as well.

My goal when I meet a new patient is to understand what they are going through and what has affected their life. If I work with you or your family member I will try and understand your situation and history and will get a sense of how to shape modalities of therapy to help you and/or your family member to overcome the problems. I see a range of ages from children and adolescents to adults. Although every individual problem is unique, I have expertise in Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder (ADHD) in children and adults, Depression, Bipolar Disorder, Anxiety, and Obsessive Compulsive Disorder.
