About My Clients

I love working with clients who have had mediocre experiences with the field of psychiatry. I care a great deal about my patients and share my own experience, strength, and hope. Whenever possible I provide same-day phone appointments. This practice is a labor of love for me.

My Background and Approach

I am Board Certified in Family Medicine and completed a Fellowship in Integrative Psychiatry. Depending on the client's interests or needs I prescribe non-addicting psychiatric medications or we can try a more natural approach, or both. I do not prescribe stimulants for ADHD or benzodiazepines for anxiety. I like using non-addicting medications such as Lexapro and Wellbutrin for depression, Buspirone for anxiety, Lamictal for mood stabilization, and atypical antipsychotics for treating mania in bipolar disorder. I only prescribe in the state of California. I do not accept insurance. All appointments are $100 regardless of length. Typically I do a medication evaluation and get to know you for about an hour in the first appointment, then have a 30-minute or less follow up in a month, then every three months. For those who prefer just talking I provide flexible care; some clients call to check-in and stay accountable in recovery for 30 minutes every week or every other week.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

Acceptance has not always come easily to me, but over the past 20+ years, I have learned how to deal with my challenges and have found a combination of daily medication, recovery work, and therapy that works for me to be stable and serene. I would love the opportunity to help you deal with whatever you're going through. I get satisfaction from seeing my patients improve with the suggestions and medications I give them.
