Holistic Psychiatry, Psychotherapy and Rehabilitation

I am a holistic psychiatrist and psychotherapist in San Francisco, located near the UCSF Parnassus Campus. I specialize in comprehensive, individualized, integrated care for adults and adolescents who struggle with depression, mood and anxiety disorders, trauma, as well as difficult transitions and loss. 

I provide:

Brief, intensive and more long-term psychotherapy with and without medications

Insight-oriented Cognitive Behavioral Therapy©

Comprehensive Evaluation/Care Planning/Consultation with individuals, families and agencies

addressing complex cases, which may include severe mental illness

My Approach to Care

Holistic means that I look at each patient as a whole person and all aspects of their life. 

Integrated and comprehensive means all of the standard medical and pharmacological treatments with a broad range of lifestyle, nutritional, expressive, rehabilitative and complementary approaches to health and wellness.

Person-guided means each client is responsible for guiding their own care as part of a collaborative process.  Each client defines their own goals for treatment based on their needs, strengths, and preferences -  in ways they determine most appropriate for them.

Recovery-focused means striving to empower each patient with the skills and supports that they need to mobilize their own personal resources and achieve their life goals. 

“Don't ever let time or age keep you from living your dreams. Time will pass and you will age -

with or without any special accomplishments."

I am a fee-for-service practice and take no insurance.  Many of my patients have a portion of services covered through out-of-network outpatient mental health benefits. Staff can provide receipts for reimbursement from insurance upon request.
