  • Something to know about my approach is:

    I use an integrative, eclectic and holistic, trauma-informed therapeutic approach weaving together psychotherapy, judicious medication-management and responsiveness to your needs arising out of the biopsychosocial dimensions of your experience.

  • Together, we will:

    ... build a trusting patient-practitioner relationship, establish a diagnosis and develop an individualized treatment plan that can include Psychotropic Medication(s), Complementary, Alternative and/or Psychotherapeutic Treatment Modalities.

  • I specialize in working with people who:

    ... need help with Women's Issues, Medication Management, Pregnancy/Prenatal/Postpartum Mood Disorders, Depression/Anxiety/Bipolar Disorders, Grief, Substance Use Disorders, Trauma/PTSD, Sexual Abuse, Sex/Human Trafficking.

  • I became a therapist because:

    ... my passion is to provide comprehensive & culturally congruent Psychiatric and Mental Health Care to support individuals on their path to wellness.

  • Something that stands out about where I offer therapy is:

    ... I can serve patients anywhere in the state of California from the comfort of their home using a secure online platform (telepsychiatry).

  • More about me and my practice:

    My practice is both an Art and a Science and that means I will combine my wisdom, creativity, compassion, and healing spirit with the most up to date Evidence-Based Practice (EBP) in Psychiatry, Psychopharmacology and Psychotherapeutic Modalities.
