"The curious paradox is that when I accept myself just as I am, then I can change."
—Carl Rogers

As a man, it is a unique privilege and honor to be part of women’s journeys through the changes, uncertainties, and excitement of pregnancy and postpartum. I have years of experience working with women and families facing a variety of challenges. My role is to offer women the education, resources, and support needed to have healthy pregnancies and a rewarding bond with their babies.

My areas of clinical interest include: depression, anxiety, trauma, substance use, domestic violence, parenting, sibling transitions.

I joined Kaiser Permanente in 2017.

I was born in the Richmond district of San Francisco and lived in Marin County for much of my youth. I have been living in San Francisco since 2006, and proud to call the Bay Area my home. I enjoy spending time with my family, mindful walks in nature with my dog, and savoring quiet moments of meditative reflection.
