Kaiser Permanente physician
My gender: Female
Accepting new patients. Referral may be required.
Welcome to my Web page! I’m a Kaiser Permanente psychiatrist who works with children and adolescents in the San Diego area.
I was born and raised in Serbia. I moved here from Eastern Europe when I was 24 years old. Growing up I thought that I’d be an engineer, but after meeting some amazing physicians, I realized I wanted to work with people and help solve their problems. My career was born! I’m married to another physician and we have one grown and one school-aged child.
My board certification is in adult, child, and adolescent psychiatry. Here, at Kaiser Permanente, I see children 17 years old and younger. Behavioral, educational, emotional, and developmental aspects of a child’s life are assessed after an initial appointment with a case manager. A referral to a psychiatrist is made if the need for medication is indicated, or if diagnostic clarification is needed.
I strive for balance in my life inside and outside of my work. Family, friends, and a spiritual life are important to me.
