For medical-legal inquiries (QME, IME, deposition, and consultation), please visit my website. I specialize in child and adolescent psychiatry but see patients of all ages for both medication management and therapy. I completed residency training at the University of Cincinnati and fellowship training at Harbor-UCLA. I hold board certifications in both adult and child psychiatry. In addition to family systems therapy, couples therapy, play therapy, and cognitive behavioral therapy, I offer psychoanalytically-oriented individual therapy and am currently a candidate in adult psychoanalysis at the Psychoanalytic Center of California (PCC).
My practice is virtually paperless, with a fully electronic medical record with patient portal and e-prescribing. Time-saving tools that benefit my patients include virtual signature, electronic patient symptom scales, and cutting edge Apple-based cloud server software on a Mac Air, iPad, and iPhone.
I manage a self-pay practice located in West LA and am happy to provide superbills to patients for out-of-network insurance reimbursement. I do not offer services on a sliding scale.
