My main goal as a therapist is to establish a trusting, safe relationship with you. I aim to develop nonjudgmental, caring connections with each person I see. Although I am a psychiatrist and can prescribe medication, most of my practice, and what I most enjoy, is offering therapy. I understand that it can be intimidating and scary to try to find a therapist and that it can be hard to reach out during a difficult time. I do my best to help people through both the process of therapy and to face the challenges in their lives.

I see my patients first and foremost in a humanistic way as people, not simply as patients or their diagnoses. As such, I offer patients comprehensive treatment, not just from a neurobiological perspective, but also a from a humanistic one. I approach my patients with compassion, respect and a commitment to confidentiality. Some of the biggest obstacles to attainting self-awareness and self-acceptance are deeply buried feelings of guilt and shame. Working with a psychotherapist you trust, who is curious, empathic and understanding can help you expand your capacity for self-curiosity, self-awareness and self-acceptance, which in turn can help you expand your capacity to: •examine, understand & change problematic patterns in your life; •make choices freely & actively, instead of reactively; •ultimately lead a more thoughtful, authentic & fulfilling life.

As a Stanford trained psychiatrist with 25 years of clinical experience, I tailor my therapeutic approach to the individual's particular needs and goals. Psychodynamic, cognitive-behavioral, and mindfulness based approaches are used, along with medication. I treat mood disorders, anxiety, relationship problems, women's issues, disordered eating, and adjustments such as divorce, loss, medical problems, career changes. Medication is best managed in the context of a therapeutic relationship. I believe in the role lifestyle and physical health can play on emotional health, and I incorporate these principles into my therapy practice.

My practice as a psychiatrist and psychotherapist is influenced by an appreciation of the unique biological, psychological and social aspects that contribute to emotional well being and/or suffering of an individual person. Biological treatments like medications can be part of a solution but must be used rationally and carefully and are rarely "cures." Insight into the psychology of the individual, especially the hidden parts of thoughts, feelings and behaviors can be invaluable even if hard won in psychotherapy. Attending to one's social environment in concert with the above areas is the final part of effective treatment.
