Physician | Psychiatry

In my psychiatry practice I work with a person to find and foster their natural inner resilience to reclaim their life and health. My belief is that the best way for me as a psychiatrist to help others is to use psychiatric medication and psychotherapy to treat mental illness.

I am learning more all the time about trauma-focused care, including the therapy techniques that make up EMDR and DBT. Currently I operate a private psychotherapy and medication management practice at Reclaim Joy Medical.

I finished my Chief Resident year in 2014 and moved to the Silicon Valley area shortly after. I have worked in a variety of settings, including PAMF, Santa Clara County’s Mental Health Clinics, Alameda County’s Primary Care Clinics, and San Jose State University.

I completed my intern year at University of Iowa’s Family Medicine/Psychiatry Combined Residency. I realized that I wanted to dedicate my life to being a psychiatrist working with family doctors, while not being a family doctor myself. In order to follow my dream, I transferred to the University of South Alabama Psychiatry Residency for my second half of residency. In my final year at University of South Alabama, I was the Chief Resident.
