Accepting new patients. Referral may be required.
Welcome to my Web page. I am honored to work with the wonderful staff and members at Kaiser Permanente. I am happy to have the opportunity to introduce myself to you.
Growing up in Southern California and rural Arizona, I always knew I wanted to be a physician serving in a similar area. I have worked abroad in Tanzania, Mexico, and Costa Rica and bring what I have learned to my practice of medicine. In medical school, I became fascinated with psychiatry, and I feel fortunate to work in a field that has the opportunity to make such a positive impact on the health and well-being of members.
I am a psychiatrist and have been working at Kaiser Permanente since 2016. I enjoy working collaboratively with members to develop treatment plans they feel comfortable with. I encourage members to engage in psychotherapy and healthy lifestyles. I believe that good nutrition, exercise, sleep hygiene, healthy relationships, and stress reduction are the best ways to achieve optimal mental health and minimize medication. Cognitive behavioral therapy is incorporated into my approach to medication management.
I enjoy spending time outdoors with my family, yoga, travel, and cooking.
