My ideal patient is someone who is interested in approaching his or her issues from a multi-dimensional approach, which often involves combination of psychotherapy and medications, as warranted. I provide a comprehensive assessment of you as an individual, which includes potential diagnoses to guide treatment. I will tailor a treatment plan to target your specific concerns, which will integrate therapy, medications, and other strategies. If you already have a therapist, I can work with him or her together for your treatment needs.

I am a board certified psychiatrist trained at UCLA Semel Institute for Neuroscience and Human Behavior, and served as a Chief Resident of Inpatient Services at Resnick Neuropsychiatric Hospital at UCLA. I have received training in various types of psychotherapy, and can help guide you towards ones best serving your specific issues.

I am the co-founder of Wave Psychiatric Group in West LA. When appropriate, I am also available for telepsychiatry visits using simple, secure video conferencing. This is an ideal format for patients with a busy schedule, mobility issues, or residing in areas where it is difficult to find a psychiatrist.
