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.

Are you frustrated with clinicians not calling you back or whose costs are prohibitive? Have you been wondering if medications may be an appropriate treatment for your persistent mental health symptoms? My initial evaluations begin at $250 to help you establish the care you need. I will listen carefully and patiently to you and reflect not only your concerns, but also the strengths and motivations you bring to improving your mental health. I will work “with” you to develop a holistic assessment of your needs, suggest evidence-based treatments, and explain how these address the goals we establish collaboratively.

I earned a Ph.D. in cognitive neuropsychology from UC Berkeley before attending medical school at UC San Francisco and later specializing in psychiatry at New York University. As a result, I have a thorough understanding of the neural pathways involved in emotions and cognition, how they develop, how they are regulated, and the relevant neurotransmitters. I have applied my training to develop a specific expertise in identifying and treating ADHD in adults. While neural pathways affect behavior, your mind doesn't exist in a vacuum. Your mind developed and operates under distinct circumstances.

Coping Skills Psychiatrists
With coping skills or coping mechanisms, we learn to overcome issues like stress, depression, anger or anxiety.

Pro-active coping involves dealing with a problem by using constructive coping activities such as planning, confrontation, self-control and restraint. Overuse of coping mechanisms, like avoiding problems or working obsessively, can exasperate the weakness.

Emotion based coping skills reduce symptoms by addressing our feelings e.g. discussing the issues, distraction, relaxation, reframing or humor can all help. But negative coping mechanisms, which tend to be impulsive, like denial, projection, rationalization, repression or wishful thinking can make the underlying problem worse.

Some coping methods are more like bad habits than constructive life skills e.g. drinking and drugs. Other examples might include skin biting, nail biting or hair pulling (trichotillomania).

If you find it hard to cope or are having trouble coping, psychiatrists in San Francisco can help develop constructive coping skills for children, coping skills for kids and life coping skills.

If you're looking for help with coping skills in San Francisco or for a San Francisco coping skills psychiatrist, these professionals provide coping strategies. They include San Francisco coping skills psychiatrists, coping skills psychologists, coping skills psychotherapists and coping skills counseling.

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 (so check for San Francisco child psychiatrists or adolescent psychiatrists in San Francisco). 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 (certain states license Psychopharmacologists), psychiatric genetics, neuroimaging, and clinical neurophysiology.

Psychiatric nurse practitioners in San Francisco, or mental health nurse practitioners, generally have a MS degree in nursing (MSN) and a number of years 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.
