I am a psychiatrist and my practice is in Menlo Park, CA.
My work is to help people live their lives more fully.
Some people come to me when they are struggling with interpersonal problems or work or academic difficulties. Others are facing difficult life decisions or dealing with loss and grief. Issues such as stress, worry, sadness, guilt, or anger may have intensified to the point of being life-interfering. Enlisting some help is a step towards positive change.
Depression, anxiety, insomnia, PTSD, bipolar disorder, OCD, and ADD/ADHD are some of the common conditions that I treat.
Treatment can be either psychotherapy (talk therapy) or psychopharmacology (medication treatment). If you are already working with a psychotherapist, I can provide concurrent medication treatment, while you continue to work with your talk therapist. Typically, I will suggest that you allow your therapist and me to communicate collaboratively.
I am happy to speak on the phone to discuss more details of my practice and to answer any questions that you might have.
