I am devoted to providing up to date and comprehensive psychiatric services and to deliver excellent quality care. I have extensive expertise in the diagnosis and treatment of mental illness and co ocurring disorders like Substance Use Disorders.

I am convinced that the relationship between doctor and patient contributes greatly to a good therapeutic outcome, therefore mutual trust and respect are important aspects of any therapy.

I am bilingual and bicultural (English, Spanish) which allows me to be sensitive to cultural issues that are unique to individuals raised in other countries or by immigrant families.

I believe in a balanced approach beyond symptom relief and abstinence from substances by emphasizing the importance of better social and work skills sometimes with the help of a team approach that may include medical doctors, psychologists or social workers.

My mission is to support patients reach their optimal physical and mental health.  I believe in working with each patient to provide expert medical treatment, guidance, and care tailored specifically for their specific health concerns.  Please contact us today to schedule your initial evaluation.
