About

I am a child, adolescent, and adult psychiatrist based in Oakland, California. I offer compassionate and evidence-based treatment to alleviate distress and cultivate strengths. I see myself as a guide, helping patients reach their goals, foster well-being and find meaning in their lives.
My background as a physician combined with specialized psychotherapy training allows me to draw on the widest range of approaches, tailored to each person’s unique context. My practice style combines various approaches, with a focus on psychodynamic psychotherapy, cognitive-behavioral therapy, and, if needed, psychopharmacology (medication management).
I am seeing patients in person in my office in the Rockridge District of Oakland. Telehealth appointments are also available. Please contact me through my portal on my website: AsherPsychiatry.com/contact
