At OC ADHD, we focus on more than just helping to restore a person's functionality; our goal is to help people realize their true potential, from a personal, professional, social, and spirtual point-of-view. We strive to create a more accessible, understanding, and specialized care model for the professional with ADHD. We understand how ADHD can impair the lives of high functioning adults, how commuting to clinic visits and managing monthly paper prescriptions does not fit the demanding lifestyles of working professionals, and how adults with ADHD have unique treatment needs.

*Accepting new patients at my Irvine location* Compassionate, non-judgmental and individualized care is what I believe in. Good mental health treatment is a partnership between a doctor and a patient towards achieving the best possible outcome. I have worked in different clinical settings before transitioning to private practice which gives me the time and flexibility truly needed to address a person's mental health needs. I like to look at the big picture and go to the root of issues rather than superficially treating symptoms alone. This approach has led to wonderful clinical outcomes. I look forward to working with you.
