About me

I was born in Los Angeles, California, and moved to Maui with my family when I was three years old. I feel fortunate to have enjoyed my childhood in Maui and am equally grateful to be practicing in a community I love and know so well.

About my practice

My longtime fascination with the sciences, particularly the mind/body connection, influenced me to pursue a career in medicine and specialize in psychiatry. In my opinion, psychiatry is one of the most captivating and intriguing medical specialties. I continue to be enamored with the positive effects that psychiatry can have and appreciate the opportunities to help people lead healthier lives, both physically and mentally. When patients recover from mental illness and substance abuse, I believe they get their lives back. It is a privilege to be their partner on the road to recovery, and to be able to do this in the community I grew up in is doubly rewarding. I believe in doing what is best for the patient's health, even when it is not easy. I am an active member of the American Psychiatric Association (APA) and the American Academy of Child & Adolescent Psychiatry (AACAP). I also appreciate being a part of the Hawaii Permanente Medical Group and the wonderful professional collaboration that is available to me at all times.

How I thrive

To stay healthy and balanced, I try to get plenty of sleep, eat well and exercise. I also make it a point to set aside time for leisure activities with my family. I love being outdoors, reading and enjoy film avidly.

Kaiser Permanente uses the same quality, member experience, or cost-related measures to select practitioners and facilities in Marketplace Silver-tier plans as it does for all other Kaiser Foundation Health Plan (KFHP) products and lines of business and uses the same geographic distribution consideration to select hospitals in Marketplace plans as it does for all other Kaiser Foundation Health Plan (KFHP) products and lines of business. The measures may include, but are not limited to, HEDIS/CAHPS performance, member/patient complaints, patient safety scores, hospital quality measures, and geographic need. Members enrolled in KFHP Marketplace plans have access to all professional, institutional and ancillary health care providers who participate in KFHP plans' contracted provider network, in accordance with the terms of the members' KFHP plan of coverage. All Kaiser Permanente Medical Group physicians and network physicians are subject to the same quality review processes and certifications.

A narrow network is defined as a tailored, tiered or high-performance network that has 80 percent or less overlap with a health plan’s broadest network offered to a member in any type of plan offered by that health plan. Kaiser Permanente does not have a narrow network with respect to its Marketplace plans. Members enrolled in Kaiser Foundation Health Plan (KFHP) Marketplace plans have access to the same provider networks as members enrolled in all other KFHP plans.
