General Adult Psychiatrist

San Mateo

I am a general adult psychiatrist and I provide both psychotherapy and medication management services. Meeting with a psychiatrist can be a difficult step towards self-discovery. However, I believe that with a strong therapeutic relationship, we can create a collaborative environment for us to safely discuss your unique life experiences and needs in order to ultimately achieve a greater sense of well-being. Whether our focus is on medication or intensive psychotherapy, I cherish the opportunity to be a part of your journey.

My areas of expertise include anxiety and panic, depression, trauma, obsessive compulsive disorder, ADHD, insomnia, relational conflict, life transitions, and acculturation issues. I practice psychotherapy with a psychodynamic focus, and I have completed additional training in this therapeutic approach through the San Francisco Center for Psychoanalysis. However, I do take an eclectic approach to care with individualized treatment plans, applying concepts from cognitive behavioral therapy, goal-oriented therapy, supportive therapy, and mindfulness therapy, among others, augmented by medication when appropriate. I have also completed additional training in sports psychiatry through the International Society of Sports Psychiatry and welcome professional and recreational athletes of all levels who wish to address physical, emotional, and psychological impasses through therapy and/or medication interventions.

I will also add that I am Indian-American, born and raised in the Bay Area, with a particular interest in how cultural demands, socio-environmental pressures, and trauma, both in the past and present, can impact the mental health and overall functioning of Bay Area natives and transplants.

I graduated Summa Cum Laude from Wayne State University as a member of the university’s select B.S/M.D program. I returned to California to obtain my medical degree at the University of California, Irvine School of Medicine and completed my adult psychiatry residency training at Kaiser Permanente of Northern California. I was a 2022 recipient of the Austen Riggs Excellence in Psychotherapy Award and have promoted mental health through leadership positions via the Northern California Psychiatric Society, American Journal of Psychiatry, Association for College Psychiatry, Kaiser Permanente, and various community endeavors.
