Business Bio

I am a board-certified adult psychiatrist practicing throughout California through HIPPA-compliant videoconference and in person at West Los Angeles. Many people I have met feel they are in serious, emotional trouble and have nowhere to turn for support. I believe that balanced mental healthcare, including judicious use of medicine in the context of emotionally aware therapy can help you overcome the painful parts of life by building resilience. All of us are on a journey to discover and develop our inner strength. My goal is to help you live your own life honestly and build the self-reliance to take control of your future. I have a particular empathy for those who are afraid they have made mistakes or journeyed too far from the course they wanted their life to take. I believe all who feel this way deserve to live out their own redemption story, and my goal for therapy is to support and encourage those who wish to make deep character change.

While I focus on treating depression and any accompanying anxiety, I also have advanced training in attention/hyperactivity, trauma, sleep, bipolar, and cognitive disorders. I work primarily with adults. I provide treatment through both medication and talk psychotherapy. I am versed in a style of intense and dynamic psychotherapy with a goal of identifying and treating painful, self-inhibitory, or even self-destructive patterns of behavior.

If you think I might be of help to you, please call, email, or follow the website link to set up a trial consultation and explore whether we are a good match.

Please note, I am not an in-network provider on any health insurance plans. I am happy to provide a Superbill to you for each session. Superbills are specialized medical receipts that you can submit to your health insurance provider, asking that they reimburse you for a portion of the cost of the services provided to you by me.
