Psychotherapy and psychopharmacology for adults in Oakland, California


I am a board certified psychiatrist providing psychotherapy and psychopharmacologic treatment for adults in Oakland, California.  I treat patients for problems with mood, anxiety, and attention as well as issues related to relationships and personal growth.  The therapy I provide integrates contemporary psychodynamic therapy with cognitive behavioral therapy and mindfulness approaches.  I provide psychiatric consultation and medication management, and enjoy collaborating with non-prescribing therapists.  

I believe that the therapeutic process must be individualized for each person, and that the process of healing and growth is collaborative between therapist and patient.   My role is to provide a place to understand a person’s particular circumstances, and to offer empathy, insight and useful tools in a setting of a relationship marked by respect, warmth and humor.
