About

Thank you for visiting my site. I am a general adult psychiatrist with special expertise in treating race and gender-based trauma, PTSD, depression, anxiety/OCD, and ADHD. As a former college athlete, I also have a unique approach when it comes to sports psychology and caring for college and professional athletes.
I earned my bachelor’s degree from Dartmouth College, medical degree from Vanderbilt University and completed residency at the UCLA Neuropsychiatric Institute. In order to bring balance and humanism to my work as a physician managing medications, I have trained in psychodynamic talk therapy and other forms of behavioral therapy.
With a personal background in healing arts such as meditation and mindfulness, I bring a sense of grounded warmth and calm to my practice. My focus is to allow my patients to take the lead in their treatment, and to have a focus on wellness and inner growth.
