About

Are you feeling stuck? Do you struggle with uncomfortable emotions or bodily sensations? Do you feel unsure about how to move forward with your life? Sometimes it takes a professional to help sort out what will be helpful for you. Together we can examine where the struggle lies, how ready you are to change, what the effective treatments are, and what role medications can play. If psychotherapy is a part of your treatment we can choose from various modalities to fit your needs including mindfulness, cognitive restructuring, behavioral strategies, exposure, and psychodynamic techniques.
I feel especially rewarded by helping individuals be on the minimum amount of medication, if any, needed to achieve their goals, especially if they are undergoing psychotherapy treatment. Sometimes it seems easier to medicate uncomfortable feelings, but I would prefer to examine the sources of distress.
I offer medications and psychotherapy. I completed residency training at Stanford Hospital and am board-certified in Psychiatry. My practice is in a convenient location downtown, easily accessible by Bart or Muni (across from the Montgomery Street Station). I offer evening hours (please inquire) and am currently accepting new patients.
