“You are the CEO of your mind and body. As a psychiatrist, I view my role as your consultant, using thorough interviewing, compassion, collaboration and medical expertise to provide you with the knowledge and guidance to thrive. I do not simply “push pills”, but rather seek a holistic, well-rounded treatment plan that fits you best. It is a privilege to hear your story and establish trust during what may be the most vulnerable period of your life. I thank you for allowing me to be part of your team.

I am trained in adult general psychiatry with a specialization in addiction medicine. I attended UCLA as an undergraduate majoring in psychobiology, received my medical degree from the University of California Davis in 2005, then returned home to my roots to complete my psychiatry residency and addiction fellowship at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center. I bring a unique perspective having practiced in many different professional settings including private hospitals, research institutions, county mental health, the VA, residential treatment programs and out-patient clinics. I have experience working in consult liaison, in-patient, IOP, PHP, residential treatment and out-patient settings. I look forward to the privilege of working with you soon.
