I started working as a Physician Assistant for Clinicas in August of 1994. I have enjoyed providing medical care for our patients and it has been exciting watching Clinicas' growth. It is a pleasure to serve the patients of Clinicas del Camino Real, Inc.
My treatment philosophy is to educate my patients on how to better maintain their oral health and share with them the possible treatment options available to them, in order to help them make well informed decisions regarding their oral care. I focus greatly on preventive dentistry and health education. I am happily married and have three beautiful daughters. After work, I focus on my family and love to cook and travel.
They say “time flies when you are having fun” and for me the years have gone so quickly. I have enjoyed the last 24 years, yet they seem to have passed in a flash. I love family medicine because I am able to make lasting relationships with my patients and meet different people every day. I have traveled to different parts of the world and treated patients from very different backgrounds and cultures. What I have learned through my experiences is that everyone wants to feel good, not only physically but emotionally as well. Therefore, I believe in treating the whole person - the physical, the emotional, and the spiritual. I look forward to meeting you.
I am a clinical psychologist experienced in working with diverse populations. I have provided therapy in both community outpatient clinic and private practice. I am skilled in working with a range of mental health issues, such as depression, anxiety, relationship problems, attachment disorders, recovery from trauma, abuse, grief and loss; ADHD adoption trauma, adoptive parenting, and parenting children who have special needs or have multiple diagnoses. I enjoy teaching parents how to connect with their child. I am trained in a variety of treatment modalities including cognitive behavioral therapy, psychodynamic therapy, sand tray and art therapy, and a whole-person/whole-family perspective. I appreciate connecting the individual to the collective and vice-versa. Overall, I enjoy helping people reconnect with themselves and their loved ones so they may find peace and meaning in their lives.
