Mission Statement

My mission is to provide superior mental health and addiction treatment to adolescents and adults in San Francisco with comprehensive, patient centered and customized care. I achieve this with multimodal approaches including psychotherapy, medication, nutritional supplementation and referal for Cognitive Behavioral Therapies, intensive outpatient and inpatient treatments and advanced medical treatments such as Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation when indicated.

To fulfill this mission, I am committed to:

  • Providing excellent care.       
  • Earning the trust and respect of patients, profession and community.
  • Exceeding patient expectations.
  • Striving for continuous improvement at all levels.


What to expect

Being well-prepared for your appointment will ensure that I have all of the needed information to provide the best possible care for you. It  will help to relieve any unnecessary anxiety you may be feeling. Educate yourself on your symptoms by reviewing the content on this Web site. Also, take some time to review my staff page and familarize yourself with my background. Prior to your first visit I will send you a link via email to complete an initial questionnaire. I look forward to your first visit.
