About me

I was born on Oahu and grew up in Pearl City. I did my undergraduate work at the University of Hawaii at Manoa and my medical training at the University of Hawaii, John A. Burns School of Medicine. For my psychiatric internship and residency, I went to the University of California, San Diego, where I also did a fellowship in child and adolescent psychiatry. After living and working in San Diego for 19 years, I was glad to move back home to Hawaii so that I could be closer to my friends and extended family.

About my practice

Having a career as a physician was an attractive idea to me because of my long-held desire to be in a position through which I could make a meaningful difference in the lives of children and families. At the same time I wanted to have the opportunity to engage in continuous learning and personal development. Being a psychiatrist has been an ideal way to accomplish these goals. The long-term relationships that I’ve developed with my patients while watching them grow and evolve over time are very rewarding to me.

To stay up-to-date in medicine and particularly in psychiatry, I participate in online continuing medical education programs, attend professional conferences, read medical journals, and confer with colleagues.

I grew up in the Kaiser Permanente health care system and have warm memories of my experiences at the Punawai Clinic in Waipahu. When I decided to move back to Hawaii, I heard great things about Hawaii Permanente Medical Group from my former medical school classmates. At my interview I was especially impressed by the organization’s philosophy of placing patient care first. I also appreciated the welcoming atmosphere, the attractive facilities, and the modern technology.

In my opinion, care should be a team effort between physician and patient, focused on the totality of each patient’s situation, and tailored to each individual and his or her family. I always enjoy listening to my patients’ stories as well as hearing and responding to their questions.

How I thrive

To stay physically fit, I do stretching exercises and practice yoga. Spending quality time with my family and friends and playing with my two dogs lift my spirits and help me to de-stress and recharge. I also enjoy cooking at home, traveling to new places, and going on adventures with my daughter.

Kaiser Permanente works together with participating providers to ensure all cultural competence obligations are met. We are dedicated to ensuring that services are provided in a culturally competent manner to all members, including those with limited English proficiency and reading skills; as well as those with diverse cultural and ethnic backgrounds.

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.

Information about a practitioner is provided to us by the practitioner or is obtained as part of the credentialing process.
