About Me

Welcome to my Web page. As a psychiatrist I want you to feel comfortable knowing that you will receive top-notch, thoughtful, and compassionate care from me.


I trained at Columbia and Cornell Hospitals in New York City and have been with Kaiser Permanente for over 22 years. I am knowledgeable in the various diagnostic and treatment aspects of child and adolescent psychiatry, and I have a strong commitment to practicing high-quality patient care.

About my practice

As a child and adolescent psychiatrist, I am part of a larger team of therapists specializing in helping young people grow to be successful adults. I also work with many young adults. Over the years, I have helped many children move on to college and beyond.

How I thrive

My passion is for teaching. For many years I have been on the faculty at UCLA where I teach medical students, interns, and residents about issues in adolescent psychiatry.
