My Care Philosophy

I chose psychiatry because of its intersection with neuroscience, philosophy, culture, and the law. (Before I became a psychiatrist, I earned a Ph.D. studying the genetics of serotonin signaling in a small roundworm, C. elegans, and then did postdoctoral work in human genetics). I enjoy helping patients feel better, decreasing stigma, and increasing education and awareness about issues in behavioral health. Joining Kaiser Permanente has allowed me to work in an integrated system where I can help patients and other behavioral health providers—as well as my colleagues from other medical disciplines. I believe that our attention to evidence-based medicine and clinical outcomes make this the best place to practice and receive care. I see all adult patients who present to Behavioral Health Services, and also have an extra knack for treatment-resistant mood disorders. I work hard to deliver health care that I would expect and hope for a family member to receive.

About Me

I was born in Texas, but spent most of my childhood in Southern California. I’m married and have family living here in the Northwest as well as back in California.

How I Thrive

Among the ways I stay happy and healthy are: eating healthy, walking and cycling, and spending time with family. Other pursuits I enjoy include reading (twentieth-century history, popular cosmology, and science fiction), camping, and traveling.
