Where I practice
Welcome to my Web page! I am a board-certified psychiatrist, treating children, adolescents, and adults. I have an empathetic and non-judgmental approach, and I am committed to providing high-quality care for members. In my practice, I empower members to improve their coping skills and interpersonal skills to achieve their optimal mental health. I believe that psychotropic medications, when required, should only be a part of a comprehensive treatment plan. I feel privileged that my sub-specialization in child and adolescent psychiatry gives me the opportunity to diagnose and treat mental health issues at early stages and improve lifetime health outcomes. I look forward to working with you, your family, and other health professionals to help you achieve your optimal mental health and happiness.
I also believe that trust and confidence in your doctor is vital to improving mental health. That’s why I build a therapeutic alliance with all involved family members, working with therapists, pediatricians, school teachers, and family members to coordinate care and empower members.
About my practice
I earned an undergraduate degree at California State University, Northridge in chemistry before obtaining my medical degree at St. George’s University School of Medicine, followed by an adult psychiatry residency at Drexel University/Hahnemann University Hospital and a child psychiatry fellowship at Los Angeles County + University of Southern California Medical Center.
How I thrive
In my personal time, I like to stay active, and I enjoy running and swimming.
