About Me

Welcome to my Web page. I have been a psychiatrist at Kaiser Permanente since 1976 and have worked at the Vista Medical Offices since they opened in 1993. My experience over the years has been extremely helpful to me in caring for my patients. I have learned that one size doesn't fit all. Each person has unique problems for which unique approaches are needed. My patients have taught me to be a better psychiatrist.


I am originally from the East Coast. After medical school at Albany Medical College, I came to UC San Diego for my residency and internship.

About my practice

I see adults of all ages and evaluate them for medication, follow up with them for any medications I prescribe, and provide ongoing support.

How I thrive

As a psychiatrist, what is most important to me is how I can help you feel well.
