Focus Area: Psychiatry

Licensed in: California

I focus on the whole individual — not just a constellation of symptoms — and the treatment I provide is comprehensive, and believe in integrative care . My focus is on the relationship with my patients, maintaining trust, and providing excellent care. I approach my patients with the same dedication I would want my own loved ones and family to receive.
