About Me

I have been fortunate to attend my schooling and training at some of the top institutions in Los Angeles. For my undergraduate studies, I attended UCLA, majoring in History and graduating Cum Laude.  I then went on to medical school at the KECK/USC School of Medicine.  My residency was completed at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in the department of Psychiatry, where I was awarded the Judd-Marmor award for Excellence in Clinical Practice. I am Board Certified in Psychiatry and Neurology by the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology. I have completed Core-Training in Intensive Short Term Dynamic Psychotherapy with Drs. Robert Neborsky and Josette Ten-Have de Labije, two world-renowned psychotherapists.


I particularly enjoy the work I do in my private practice; it is the culmination of all that I do and continue to work at.  My goal is to help people get better, live fuller and happier lives. I have served as Clinical Assistant Professor at the USC/Keck School of Medicine, where I taught medical students and residents in psychiatry.  I have also worked as a Research Physician. In this capacity I functioned as Principal or Sub-Investigator on numerous trials assessing various aspects of medications en route to FDA approval. Related to my research endeavors, I served as the Vice-Chairman of the Institutional Review Board at Glendale Adventist Medical Center.        

I have dedicated my career to helping others and it is my true passion.  

A high level of ​quality care.
