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.

Are you struggling to find a sense of balance? Do you have experiences or symptoms that make it hard to be you? Maybe you have been in treatment for a long time, or maybe you are just beginning to address what ails you. I am here to help. Psychiatry is a vast and complex field, and the path to well-being is different for everyone. For some it might mean developing a deeper understanding of self, or working through painful experiences. For others it might mean finding support with medication treatment. I want to help you achieve a path that feels right to you.

Teletherapy Psychiatrists
Teletherapy and Online counseling have grown enormously as a medium for therapy since the advent of social distancing. Most therapists are happy to provide sessions by video or phone.

All professionals are licensed to provide video therapy to clients within the State in which they hold their license. Cross State licensing exists, but is rare.

So if you're a client in Alameda, this list of teletherapists are licensed to provide therapy to you online (by phone, video or text based chat) because they are within your state. They are sorted nearest to furthest, with professionals in Alameda listed first.

Teletherapy via phone or video can be very similar to conventional in person sessions. The message is the same, even if the medium is different. There are some advantages in the form of convenience, lack of travel and being in comfort of your own home. Set against those, professionals find it more difficult to read non-verbal signals of their clients, and you may find you yourself can be more easily distracted.
