Psychiatrist in San Francisco, CA
I work with patients of all identities and orientations on expert medication management. As an Emeritus Professor of Psychiatry at UCSF, I have much experience and expertise in medication management of psychiatric symptoms, including doing research on depression treatment. I see many patients with bipolar disorder, depression, panic disorder, PTSD, Generalized Anxiety Disorder, ADHD, and other psychiatric illnesses, and provide up-to-date, evidenced-based treatment.
I have worked in trans/NB mental health for many years. As a co-author of WPATH SOC 7 and SOC 8 and past WPATH Board member, I have worked to modernize care practices centering client/patient autonomy and informed consent. I have lectured internationally and authored book chapters on trans care.
Past President of the Association of LGBTQ Psychiatrists and past chair of the American Psychiatric Association LGBT Caucus, I have been a leader in improving care for LGBTQ+ people. I worked for many years in an LGBTQ mental health clinic, as well as in an HIV clinic.
