Start on a journey of mental wellness.

During your initial evaluation, your overall health will be evaluated comprehensively and we will discuss options for treatment. Treatment then proceeds with regular visits to monitor your response to treatment. You can continue treatment in parallel with a therapist if you already have an established relationship with a provider. I will then coordinate care with your therapist so we help you achieve optimal results. For patients who are looking for an integrative approach with medications and psychotherapy, after an initial trial, we will meet once or twice a week to optimize your medication regimen and engage in therapy. In all cases, we work together to decrease impairing symptoms, build insight and resilience, develop self-compassion, and achieve better functioning and ultimately self-reliance.

Optimizing and maintaining mental wellness are based on developing a relationship and regular monitoring. Though questionnaires are used to assess basic symptoms, the skills you build and changes you effect are based on regular engagement. No rushed visit here. We will take the time to answer your questions and design the best treatment with you in mind.

If you are ready to invest in your most valuable asset, your mind, call me today and we can set up an initial consultation.

For us to be able to work together, you must be located in California. At this time, all patients are seen remotely via a secure telemedicine platform.
