"I am passionate about helping people feel better about themselves and the world around them. I am honored to be part of each person’s individual journey to mind and body wellness."
In my years of practice in the city of Newport Beach, I endeavor to provide excellent care and service to all patients. I am able to provide superb psychological care to a diverse population of patients with a pleasant disposition. Many of my patients live in the cities of Irvine, Laguna Hills, Aliso Viejo and Mission Viejo.
I strongly believe that both collaborative care and continuity of care for each patient is very important because not only does it gives the patient all around care by receiving both therapy and medication in one Practice, but also gives the providers a chance to share, coordinate and integrate information to support and provide each patient and to make sure they have the very best patient care.
