About

Combining Science with Kindness is what drew me to psychiatry and is the cornerstone of my practice. My interest in the mind led to a degree in Cognitive Science at Brown University. After graduating from Brown Medical School, I completed my psychiatry training and research fellowship at UCSF. I have been working with wounded veterans since 1998. My private practice offers me the opportunity to share my expertise with a broader array of patients. I am proficient at treating Anxiety/Panic Disorders, Bipolar Disorder, Major Depression, ADHD, Addictive Disorders (including Buprenorphine), and Traumatic Stress.
Beyond my experience and knowledge, I also care deeply about my patients and I am always striving to fully understand what they are going through. I view treatment as a shared journey that requires active collaboration. I work well with other therapists to build an integrative team. I am a committed optimist and never give up on the possibility of change.
I love to work with patients who are open though ambivalent about pharmacologic treatment. The treatment process can be challenging but it is definitely worth the mutual effort. I am deeply invested in you as a person and I want to help you build a happier and more wonderful life. I offer full tele-psychiatry services. I look forward to conversing with you.
