About

Finding a Board Certified Integrative Child and Adolescent Psychiatrist, one who approaches treatment from an evidence based clinical, holistic, developmental and systems based (family, school, etc) perspective is challenging. I am committed to improving lives of children, adolescents and their families. I specialize in Autism, Anxiety and OCD disorders. I treat these through Cognitive Behavioral, Exposure Response Prevention, Family or Parent Behavioral Management therapies with or without psychotropic medications. I incorporate mindfulness, psychoeducation, sensory and complimentary interventions as appropriate.
Partnering with families, schools and systems of care is my core philosophy. Understanding the family culture, parenting styles, and psycho-social influences is critical. Developing an effective treatment plan using strength based approaches can only be done in partnership. Alliance, Transparency and Education in treatment are my core principles.
I have my primary location in SF but also offer consultations in NYC. I offer Telepsychiatry sessions, Electronic Health records, eprescribing, easy access after hours, and under exceptional circumstances have made home visits for established patients. I was listed as one of 3 best psychiatrists 2019 in SF. https://threebestrated.com/psychiatrists-in-san-fra
