I am a board-certified psychiatrist, have been in practice since 1993, and currently have offices located in Berkeley and downtown San Francisco. My practice is focused on providing individual psychotherapy for adults with or without adjunctive medication treatment. I combine several approaches to psychotherapy, including supportive, psychodynamic and cognitive-behavioral therapies. My style is interactive, and I strive to create a comfortable and safe environment for patients to discuss challenging issues and at times to experience difficult feelings. My approach is multidimensional, taking into account the lifestyle, biological, psychological, and social factors that may be contributing to each individual's problems. I also incorporate nutrition, exercise, and meditation-based approaches to health and wellness, depending on individual needs and interests.
