I was born and raised in Los Angeles and spent my early adult life on the East Coast where I attended college, medical school and trained as a psychiatrist. I practiced general psychiatry (psychotherapy and psychopharmacology) in Boston at a variety of academic, public sector and independent practice work settings. 

In 2003, I returned to California and become a physician at Kaiser Permanente where I enjoyed a diverse general psychiatric practice while serving in a variety of leadership positions including Departmental Site Chief at the Oakland campus.

I am pleased to be joining the Berkeley Therapy Institute (BTI) practice this September. I hold BTI in the highest regard having collaborated many times with their outstanding clinical staff over the past 17 years.
