I have worked as a Psychologist in Ventura County for over 5 years and during that time I have gained experience working with diverse populations and mental health problems. I have been licensed as a Clinical Psychologist in California since 2014 and previous to working with Clinicas del Camino Real, I worked for the County of Ventura. I am passionate about improving the lives and health of local families and enjoy working with children, adolescents, and adults. My prior work experience includes working as the Senior Psychologist with Ventura County at their Juvenile Center, working with clients with addiction and mental health issues at Tarzana Treatment Center and working with sexual offenders and substance abusers at Sharper Future in Los Angeles.
I am skilled in working with a range of mental health problems including substance addiction and abuse, suicidal and self-harm behaviors, mood and anxiety disorders, severe trauma and family and community violence issues, ADHD and other behavior problems, especially those associated with Oppositional Defiant Disorder, adjustment disorder and Conduct Disorder.
After completing my initial medical training in India, I moved to the United States seeking to obtain an education that would enable me to provide my patients with the best possible care. I feel fortunate that my work allows me to impact the life and health of children and thereby shape the future of our world. At each visit, I strive to build relationships with children and their families so we can work together towards the common goal of optimal health for their child. I value the time I spend with families and hope that at the end of clinic visit with me they have a full understanding and feel that their thoughts were listened to and their concerns addressed.
I have a special interest in locally applicable global health and have graduated from the Global Health Track at the University of Minnesota. This has given me the training and knowledge to provide care to populations with diverse backgrounds. I believe that each child and family is unique and aim to provide culturally sensitive care that caters to the individual needs of the family.
My husband and I love to travel – we are focusing on national parks this year and have covered 7 so far and are looking forward to more adventures. When I have the time, I enjoy cooking and trying new cuisines. I also have a newfound love for gardening and am experimenting with flowering plants. Watching my plants bloom is such a fulfilling feeling!
Guided by the intrinsic passion to help individuals, I strive to provide high quality and affordable care to my patients. As a compassionate individual, I believe that each patient deserves a unique level of care for their unique needs. Coupled with dental education at UCLA and over 8 years of clinical experience. I believe that I will be able to provide high quality care and address the needs of my patients. I am fortunate to be a part of the team at Clinicas del Camino Real and I look forward to seeing you soon.
I am an enthusiastic physician, with a strong educational and clinical background. I am empathetic, compassionate and have a strong desire to learn in order to provide the best quality of care to my patients. It is your health and I will listen to your concerns and devise a plan with you so that we can achieve the goal of a “healthier you” together.
