About me

I’m happy to have this chance to introduce myself to you and tell you about my practice. Working with my wonderful colleagues and members at Kaiser Permanente has been a privilege. I ask for your active participation and partnership in taking care of your health.

Biography

Ever since I can remember, I wanted to be a psychiatrist. My father is a psychiatrist, and I grew up fascinated with the idea of learning why people behave the way they do. This quest to understand human behavior has guided me in my choice of a career and has continued to fuel my professional life. Through medical school and residency training, I learned about health and illness, and about the intricacies of the human body, brain, and mind. But perhaps the most important lesson I learned was about the value of an empathic bond between the doctor and his/her patient and its importance in the healing process. The physician Hippocrates of ancient Greece said, "The natural healing force within each one of us is the greatest force in getting well." Everyone has a doctor inside—we just have to help that doctor do his or her work.

About my practice

I believe in a strong connection between the mind and the body. This means we need to take care of our emotions as well as our bodies to stay healthy and happy. I take a holistic approach to wellness. Medications I may prescribe are only part of this approach. It may also include psychotherapy, exercise, a balanced diet, relaxation techniques, mindfulness meditation and yoga. I work within a team setting and solicit your active partnership with this team to achieve a balance of emotional, physical, and spiritual well-being.

How I thrive

I strive to practice what I preach. This means I have to take care of myself. I’m fueled by the love of my family and friends, and I have an active life outside of my work that rejuvenates me and keeps me looking forward to coming to work every morning to care for my members.
