Accepting new patients. Referral may be required.
Dear Kaiser Permanente members: Welcome to my Web page. I am very fortunate to be working with a talented team of physicians, nurses, and clinicians. I look forward to meeting you and having the privilege of serving your health care needs.
I am a native of Southern California. I chose a career in psychiatry because there is an important need for mental health services. As a physician, I believe I can make a difference in meeting this need by providing compassionate and competent care.
I have been with Kaiser Permanente since 1999. I serve both English- and Spanish-speaking members: adults, teens, and children. A career in psychiatry is a very special opportunity to connect with and help people in a meaningful way, utilizing my medical training and knowledge, but also listening and responding to what they need. I feel honored that my patients have entrusted me with their care, and I strive to treat them as I would my own family.
My approach to staying well is to exercise regularly, eat healthy foods, and enjoy family and friends. I think it’s important to keep active and busy with interests and hobbies you find enjoyable. It’s also important to keep learning new information and skills. Don’t be afraid of change and challenge yourself both physically and mentally.
