Although I trained in medical informatics, I consider myself a balanced psychiatrist who believes very much in providing both psychotherapy as well as medication management. Teaching resident physicians, medical students, and colleagues is also very fulfilling in addition to my various administrative roles at UCLA.
I have a clinical interest in schizophrenia, depression, anxiety, and mood disorders, and I provide psychotherapy and medication management for patients with those conditions.
My most frequently seen patients are those needing long term psychodynamic therapy for depression and anxiety. In addition, I provide outpatient evaluations for organ transplant candidates.
My colleagues consider mean expert on the latest computer technology for assisting physicians. I write a column in Primary Psychiatry magazine called 'Tech Advisor' that provides concise and helpful summaries for doctors on technologies which enhance clinical practice.
I am affiliated with the Stewart and Lynda Resnick Neuropsychiatric Hospital at UCLA Medical Center, and I am the Director of Consultation Psychiatry, Director of Psychiatric Emergency Services, and the Associate Director of Psychiatry Residency Training.
