I am a board-certified psychiatrist in the East Bay. I am trained to address all of the major psychiatric diagnoses and specialize in both psychotherapy and medication management. My approach recognizes the practical necessity of diagnostic categories, but I also value and rely on the uniqueness of one's subjective experience to help guide the treatment process. It can be helpful for some people to hear that they may benefit from psychiatric or psychotherapeutic help even when a diagnosis may be unclear or unnecessary.

I am particularly interested in how both specific and nondescript forms of anxiety and stress often simultaneously play a central role in most diagnoses. My aim, in general, is to help individuals establish reliable ways to experience more freedom from these variable forms of anxiety and stress.

As an adjunct to my medical training, I am also a candidate in full training at the San Francisco Center for Psychoanalysis. I find that a psychoanalytic perspective may enrich and deepen the therapeutic reach of one's treatment under certain circumstances.
