About me

Sir William Osler once said, "There are three species on earth: Men, women and women physicians." I feel privileged to be female physician. I hail from India and am a graduate of one of the oldest medical schools in the subcontinent. I have been in the United States for the last 17 years. I completed my training in general psychiatry at Albany Medical Center in New York and my fellowship training in child and adolescent psychiatry at Emory University. When I was in elementary school, I wanted to be a teacher. When I started college, I began to lean towards the medical sciences, and by the time I began medical school, my focus was more streamlined towards psychiatry. I could not think of a better way of ensuring I fulfilled every aspect of my dream by choosing a career that blended all of my aspirations. I am thankful for the fact that I was able to train in child psychiatry and be given the honor to help and heal our future generation.

About my practice

I am a member of the Kaiser Permanente Behavioral Health Department, and I see children, adolescents and adults. I believe in a holistic approach to medicine where patients need to heal in mind, body and spirit in order to feel well. "Well" is a relative term. Every human being has an optimum state of well-being that I like to call "harmony in synchrony." This occurs when all aspects of an individual (physical, mental, emotional, cognitive, vocational and spiritual) are blended together in perfect individualistic unison. We strive to help our members reach this state by being the best they can be in all the varied domains. This entails everyone having a uniquely tailored treatment plan that is individualized and specific. It is my belief that Kaiser Permanente's integrated health approach will help me reach that goal for our members and their families.

How I thrive

The holistic approach that I believe in translates into my everyday existence. I think of myself as a quintessential 21st century woman, mother and physician who juggles the demands of my various roles. My wonderful family, especially my children, always keep me on my toes through involvement in their numerous activities and their incessant curiosity and quest for knowledge. Music and books help me relax and reenergize with vigor and vitality. In keeping with my passion for teaching, I also teach children in Sunday school. Ultimately, there are 24 hours in a day, and I thrive by using every single minute of the day to grow, learn, teach, care, listen, relax and rejuvenate. Every day thus results in a unique tapestry that is weaved out of experiences that can never be replicated.
