I received my MD degree from the Keck School of Medicine at the University of Southern California and completed psychiatry residency at California Pacific Medical Center in San Francisco. I have worked extensively with people with life-threatening illness as an attending psychiatrist at UCSF. I am an integrative psychiatrist at the Osher Center for Integrative Medicine at UCSF and have co-led group sessions of Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy for Depression. I am a graduate of the End-of-Life Care Practitioner Program offered through the Metta Institute (formerly offered through Zen Hospice Project).
I have been personally enriched by involvement with the Self-Realization Fellowship teachings of Paramahansa Yogananda, by the teachings of Adyashanti and Mukti, by the teachings of Dorothy Hunt, and by the mentorship and teaching of Sudha Prathikanti MD and Naomi Lam MD.
My office is based in the San Francisco Bay Area.
