Welcome to my Web page.
I am a native Californian. I have an undergraduate degree in holistic health and have always had an interest in psychosomatics: the interplay of body, mind, and spirit. I ask myself how I can be of service to others, whether they are Kaiser Permanente members or colleagues. I do inpatient and emergency psychiatric consultation at the Los Angeles Medical Center. I see patients who are in crisis or having problems secondary to their illness.
I have always had an interest in the subject of physician health. I chair the physician well-being committee, which places a special emphasis on a physician’s work-life balance. I try to follow these principles of balance in my own life.
I like to walk, most often with my dogs. I enjoy cooking, especially inventing salads or roasting and grilling vegetables.
