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 am a Yale, UCLA and UCSF-trained addiction psychiatrist. I provide confidential, evidence-based treatment for mental health issues and addictions, including opioids, alcohol, cocaine, amphetamines, tobacco, cannabis, and behavioral addictions like internet, gaming, and gambling. These are NOT moral or character failings, but rather medical conditions that can affect anyone at any time, from any walk of life, with oftentimes serious personal, relational, and professional consequences. Though validated treatments exist, these are often underutilized due to medical providers’ discomfort, lack of education, and/or stigma.

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.

Integrative psychiatry offers solutions to support the complexity and sustained recovery of mood, anxiety, trauma, cognition/ADHD, and sleep-related challenges, including "treatment resistance," which may simply indicate the correct diagnosis has not been found, a biological clue has been missed, or a treatment strategy is not optimal.

Patients come to see me when they experience emotional pain and need help figuring out how to improve their lives as part of a quest to feel better. Sometimes a problem has built up over time and reaches a saturation point. It may relate to work or school, to a love or family relationship, or to something completely unexpected--a layoff, breakup, accident, sudden illness or even a death--that uncovers a long neglected area of development.

What's missing from typical psychiatric care? * Care is typically boiled down to diagnositic categories while bypassing confounding personal issues * Clinicians tend to focus on the patient separated from the rest of his or her life. * Care is available only on a schedule. * Care is delivered by someone whose experience and interest covers only part of a problem. -- Mental health conditions don't exist in isolation. They are generally complicated by interpersonal issues involving relationships, family, school, or employment. They may require psychotherapy, medication, or both. My practice consists of psychotherapy, medication as needed, and medical consultation as appropriate
