I have worked extensively with children and adolescents and understand the precious nature of this clinical relationship. I believe in a collaborative approach with families, taking into account their varying opinions and experiences, with the mutual goal of improving the child/adolescent's respective condition. I enjoy working with children of all ages, getting to know and understand the unique perspective of each family I encounter. My goal is to provide a compassionate, warm and supportive environment for you and your family. I consciously strive to use medication only when suitable and at the safest dosage available. I have had years of experience practicing Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, which is a time-limited treatment that has been validated by clinical research studies for a number of common mental health problems. In most cases, I use my extensive training in various therapies with my patients and often see positive results doing this alone or in conjunction with medication.
I serve the Silicon Valley and the San Francisco Bay Area, including Palo Alto, Menlo Park, Atherton, Portola Valley, Los Altos, Los Altos Hills, Redwood City, Mountain View, Cupertino, San Jose, and Los Gatos.
