My Experience
I trained locally in Southern California, where I attended UC Irvine and obtained a bachelor's degree in Psychology. After graduating from Loma Linda Universiy Medical School, I completed my residency in Psychiatry and fellowship in Child and Adolescent Psychiatry at the University of Southern California.
About My Practice
I work with children, adolescents, and adults to enable them to live their lives to their fullest. The mind and body are two parts of a whole, and what affects one will affect the other. Good nutrition, exercise, getting rest and recreation, and avoiding harmful habits form a foundation on which to build good health. I often hear complaints that physicians have become "pill pushers". While I believe that medication is an important component of treatment, it is only one building block in whole person care. I am also involved with clinical research, have lectured at medical conferences, and have extensive experience in the are of sleep medicine. More recently, I have been intrigued by the fact that pets have a calming effect on anxiety disorders, and have brought Binx, our young black cat, into the office much to the delight of children of all ages (and aren't we all children).
A Little More
I love spending time with my beautiful wife and hitting the waves together on our surf boards and watching the sunrise or sunsets from the water. I am also an avid mountain climber having climbed peaks in the Himalayas, in Peru and in North America. I have spent a year abroad working in New Zealand, and traveling around the world. Photography is another hobby which brings me great enjoyment whether that be landscapes, people or under water. I have also spent time helping local communities here in the United States (including on Native American reservation in New Mexico) as well as internationally in India, Brazil, Fiji and Honduras by doing medical missionary work. My other hobbies include skiing or snowboarding, mountain biking and triathlons.
