More Ways Than One is a physician-led collaborative that reimagines mental health as a balance of personal discovery, growth, peace, and well-being.


Our multi-experiential approach recognizes the nuances and complexities of your life story while supporting the journey towards your goals.


More Ways Than One is not an ordinary place. And it is not for the ordinary person.


We make no judgements, but we challenge all assumptions.


There are more ways than one to live a life of peace, health, dignity, and freedom.

And we can help you find yours.


WE DESIGNED THIS SPACE... provide our members a refuge from the demands of the outside world. It is a place to calm thoughts, engage senses, and prepare for the work of change.

WE DEVELOPED THIS PRACTICE... be a more organic, humanistic, and intensive alternative to other mainstream approaches. Members have time to examine the personal, relational, physical, and organizational aspects of their lives fully through multiple perspectives in order to illuminate insights and opportunities for growth.


Not everyone takes the same path through life. What works for one person may not work for another. All of our services combine scientific knowledge, wisdom traditions, and innovation to discover new directions for growth and healing.

My clinical focus is depression - specifically, those cases in which people have repeatedly not achieved the outcomes for which they had initially hoped when they first began treatment.

        Depression can undermine work performance, personal relationships, sense of self, and personal habits or patterns. At the individual level, the experience of depression can include feelings such as anxiety, apathy, frustration, or anger. I examine the interplay of these disruptions and experiences to inform my recommendations for medication, psychotherapy, and/or alternative treatment approaches.

        I am board-certified in Adult Psychiatry by the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology, and I am a member of the inaugural class of physicians board-certified in Lifestyle Medicine by the American Board of Lifestyle Medicine. I have worked in a variety of settings and institutions across the mental health and medical care landscape. I completed medical school and clinical training at the University of Southern California (USC), where I maintain an ongoing relationship in medical and post-graduate education. 


I specialize in working with survivors of trauma – those who have experienced childhood abuse and neglect as well as those who have experienced later traumas. My approach emphasizes psychotherapy, since healing from trauma involves at some level talking about and processing difficult memories. I offer psychotherapy and medication management for the wide range of life challenges that can arise from traumatic experiences, including posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD), depression, and anxiety. I also work closely with individuals in recovery from eating disorders. I incorporate elements of lifestyle medicine and meditative practices, and I work in collaboration with a medical massage therapist. 

        I received my undergraduate degree at Harvard University, and my medical degree at Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons. I completed residency training in psychiatry at USC Keck School of Medicine. In addition to numerous articles in the area of psychological trauma, I am the co-author of Principles of Trauma Therapy, a textbook of trauma treatment, which is soon to be released in its third edition. I am on the academic faculty at the USC Keck School of Medicine. I am board certified in Psychiatry and Neurology, Addiction Medicine, and Lifestyle Medicine. 


Whether I’m working with an elite athlete, a person managing the burden of chronic headaches, or an individual recovering from a joint or muscle injury, my goal is the same: to help people move more freely in their lives. 

     Bodywork and medical massage therapy are not about simply pain relief or performance. They are about strengthening the connection between you and the bones, muscles, and tissues that serve as your home every minute of the day. Knowing how your body feels, and understanding how you feel in that body, shape how you experience the world around you. 

     I graduated from The Southern California Health Institute, and I later completed my CAMT and ABMP certifications. Over my years of practice, my own personal journeys as a performing artist managing stress on tour, as a writer working on a deadline, and as an adult beginner ballerina dancing en pointe, remind me of the physical demands my clients and I place on ourselves in the pursuit of what we love.
