Thank You For Reaching Out!
I look forward to meeting you and will be in touch shortly to find a time that fits your schedule. In the meantime, you can learn more about my career as a psychiatrist and my approach to working together towards your goals.
If your appointment request is accepted, please be on the lookout from a phone call from our office manager.
At some point in their life, one out of five adults will experience a mental health crisis. Unlike other health issues, people suffer emotionally because of erroneous beliefs. Friends and family frequently offer well intended advice such as snap out of it, change your attitude, or stop feeling sorry for yourself. Temporary or chronic mental health problems may be caused by physical as well as emotional and psychological factors such as underlying medical condition, genetic background, or environmental stressors. As a psychiatrist, it is my mission to reduce the stigma associated with mental problems.
I am a humanistic, compassionate board certified psychiatrist experienced in treating adults of all ages for anxiety disorders, depression, mood disorders, schizophrenia, OCD, PTSD, postpartum depression, and seasonal affective disorder (SAD). I believe the human connection is an essential part of the therapeutic plan. I offer a calm, nonjudgmental environment where individuals of all backgrounds and beliefs can relax and discuss their difficulties.
Born in Delhi, India, I received my medical degree and training from the Institute of Medicine in Kathmandu, Nepal. I was a South Asian Association for Regional Cooperation scholar (SAARC) and completed a psychiatric residency program at North Shore Long Island Jewish Hospital. An externship in psychiatry confirmed my interest in the field.
I enjoy traveling and meeting new people. As a result, I have worked and lived in different parts of the world. When the opportunity to start an outpatient psychiatric department at Baylor University in Irving, Texas was presented to me I welcomed it. While there, I was invited to teach psychiatry to medical students at Texas A&M.
My experience with working in emergency rooms, in patient programs, and outpatient clinics prepared me to move into private practice. While it is my responsibility to conduct a careful evaluation to determine an appropriate treatment regimen, I consider mental health to be more than a set of specific symptoms. diagnosis, or the outcome of prescribed medication.
I am committed to providing you with the time, space, and safe environment required to get past the crisis phase. I gladly work in cooperation with other members of your treatment team. This includes your primary care doctor, therapist, psychologist, and even family members in compliance with HIPPA regulations.
