I welcome clients of diverse backgrounds including persons identifying as POC, LGBTQIA+, spiritual, religious, and anyone with their own unique identity.
Person-first health means to never view you as a mental health or physical diagnosis. It means you are always person, first (and foremost), and I prioritize the things in your life that matter to you. I treat a broad range of mental health conditions such as autism, ADHD, depression, anxiety, and OCD. And I treat individuals with developmental disabilities for emotional and behavioral problems. I see a diverse range of clients: from children to young adults to early career professionals. Additionally, I work with college and graduate students who are dealing with life and academic challenges.

At times anxiety, depression, transitions in life or interpersonal relationships can begin to feel overwhelming. I provide therapy and, if appropriate, medications to assist individuals during these periods. My approach is warm, responsive and practical. My technique is based in psycho-dynamic theory and incorporates elements of mindfulness and cognitive behavioral therapy. My use of medications is thoughtful and aims to treat symptoms while minimizing side effects.

Depending on your unique needs, my approach combines conventional modalities (i.e., medications and therapy) with complementary (i.e., botanicals, nutriceuticals, nutrition, acupuncture, guided imagery, etc.).

There may be parts of your life and your identity that have been undernourished or ignored. Something is going on within you and around you that is causing distress and suffering. Perhaps, that experience is more complicated because of your race, gender, culture, religion, profession, and you are looking for someone with both the tools and the life experience to be able to understand you. People who are drawn to work with me are seeking a doctor who they can connect with, not based on the names of their disorders, but rather because they know that they can share the hidden parts of themselves.

About Psychiatrists, meds and Psychiatric Nurses.

A Psychiatrist in Oakland is a qualified medical doctor who specializes in treating mental health issues and diagnosable disorders.

Oakland 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 Oakland has many sub-specialties, including pediatric psychiatry. 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 , psychiatric genetics, neuroimaging, and clinical neurophysiology.

Psychiatric nurse practitioners in Oakland, or mental health nurse practitioners, generally have an MS degree in nursing (MSN) and a number of years of training to become certified. Psychiatric nurse practitioners are able to assess and diagnose mental health conditions and prescribe medication. Oakland Psychiatric nurse practitioners also have training that enables them to include psychotherapy with treatment.
