Kaiser Permanente physician
My gender: Female
Accepting new patients. Referral may be required.
Welcome to my Web page. I am happy to have this chance to introduce myself and tell you a little about myself and my practice at Kaiser Permanente.
I grew up in Russia, but completed my medical training in psychiatry in the United States. I lived for a long time on the East Coast, but am happy to make Los Angeles my new home.
My goal is to make your experience of seeing a psychiatrist as comfortable as possible. Sometimes people can feel anxious or scared, especially if a young child needs treatment. I try to do my best in explaining the rational for use of specific medications and their effects so you feel able to trust me in guiding your treatment. I am very fortunate to work in a group with very strong support of therapists and nurses, and your well being is our main priority.
I am a firm believer in leading a healthy lifestyle and learning ways to relax. Finding the right work-life balance is at times challenging, but I try to include exercise as part of my daily routine, from walking to yoga to sports. Spending quality time with my family enables me to thrive in mind, body, and spirit.
