Hello and welcome! I am glad to have the opportunity to present my credentials to you and share other information about myself. It is very important that you feel comfortable with your psychiatrist, and I hope this page will help you start to get to know me. I look forward to working with you in establishing a productive, therapeutic experience.
After completing my training in Southern California, I continued as a faculty member at a teaching hospital in Los Angeles. I enjoyed working with medical students, residents and fellows. My responsibilities included running an attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) clinic, a telepsychiatry clinic in Central and Northern California for people with developmental delays, an early childhood clinic, consultation work with pediatric inpatients, and residential treatment for adolescents with substance abuse problems. In addition, I devoted two half-days to work at a community mental health clinic in south Los Angeles, and spent the remainder of my time in private practice.
I specialize in child and adolescent psychiatry, but I also see adults. I enjoy working within a team of professionals from other departments to help establish a comprehensive treatment plan-which often includes individual, group and family therapy resources, in addition to medication options.
Keeping balance in my life is very important to me. I enjoy a multitude of outdoor activities and also enjoy exploring the culturally diverse experiences that Southern California has to offer.
