I am a Board Certified Adult Psychiatrist, licensed in the State of California. I have opened this practice after working for 5 years as an Attending Psychiatrist at Alta-Bates / Summit Medical Center (ABSMC) in Berkeley and Oakland. In that capacity, I worked collaboratively within treatment teams to serve patients across settings; emergency room, acute inpatient, day treatment / partial hospital program, and consulting within the medical settings, and performed ECT – Electro-Convulsive Therapy for treatment refractory depression and bipolar cases. I have previously worked at San Quentin State Prison and currently continue to contribute to the educational programming held at Herrick Hospital.
My experience in the local mental systems grounds me in the best-practices and standard of care within the community, as I bring forward my focus on integrative and interventional treatment.
