About

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.
I am a board certified psychiatrist through the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology. After earning my undergraduate degree at Brown University, I completed medical school at the University of California, Davis. I attended residency in psychiatry through San Mateo County Behavioral Health and Recovery Services
