A part of me has always found satisfaction in helping people who face troubling challenges and who need assistance. While in medical school, I fell in love with the field of Mental Health. Whether I am treating patients in English or in Mandarin 中英文 (I speak both languages fluently), whether in person or online using tele-health, and whether one-on-one or in a family setting, I find it rewarding when I and my team-mate colleagues (psychologists, internist and nurse practitioners) help patients to get back on the right paths for them.
My goal is to help patients get to a better place with any mental health issues. Different patients face different challenges, some in the areas of anxiety or depression, some others in the areas of alcohol or drug addiction, still others troubled by loss of wanted control of their thinking, their emotions, or the stability of their personality. I believe there is no “one size fits all” approach to caring for patients, and so I carefully customize the treatment for each person. I believe in educating - and advocating for - individuals, as well as importantly having them be involved in the decision making process. To accomplish this personalized care I rely on the skill-enriching pathways that led to my Board Certifications in both Psychiatry and Addiction Medicine, and my greater than ten years of experience successfully treating patients facing challenges through all stages of their lives.
No two patients are the same, so my goal - and my reputation - is providing customized treatment for each person's unique situation.
