About

Bio

I have transitioned from clinical work in community mental health settings and have opened a private practice in Placentia, CA now. I continue to specialize in the treatment of various psychiatric conditions including mood and anxiety disorders, schizophrenia and personality disorders. I am involved with administrative duties and some supervision of psychiatric nurse practitioners at a community clinic newly designated as a federally qualified health center in Buena Park, CA.

Specialties
Doctors may have more than one area of specialty interest. Board certification in a specialty area means the doctor has completed formal training and has practice experience in that specialty, and has passed the certification examination from the corresponding accredited medical specialty board.
