Where I practice
Welcome to my Web page. I'm happy to have this chance to introduce myself to you and tell you about my practice. It is very important that you feel very comfortable with your physician, and I hope this page will help you start to get to know me.
I was born in Quezon City, Philippines, and I went to medical school at one of the most prestigious universities in the country. I decided to go into the field of psychiatry after going through the different specialties in medical school. I found this field interesting, challenging, and rewarding. After medical school, I immigrated to the United States and was accepted for a psychiatry residency program. I love being in sunny Southern California and feel at home because I have a lot of family and friends here. I still go the Philippines to visit and share with them all my wonderful experiences in California.
About my practice
Medicine as a career is a very special opportunity to connect and help people in a meaningful way. I am able to utilize the medical skills and knowledge that I have acquired, as well as listen and respond to what the member needs. It is a privilege to help a member understand their mental health needs and communicate with them and their family. I am grateful to have a strong team of dedicated therapists and nurses who work hand in hand to help members get better.
How I thrive
Keeping balance in my life is very important to me. I spend time with family and friends when I'm not working. I go out for walks with my husband whenever I can, and I love playing with my children (who keep me strong and active).
