Summary

I am an Associate Professor for the Department of Psychiatry & Behavioral Sciences. I completed my psychiatry training at UCLA and pursued additional training in mindfulness and integrative medicine. I am a graduate of UCLA Center for East West Medicine and Diplomate of the American Board of Integrative Holistic Medicine. I specialize in both adult ADHD and mindfulness-based interventions.

Through my research work as the UCLA Robert Wood Johnson Clinical Scholar, I pioneered the application of mindfulness in ADHD and developed the Mindful Awareness Practices (MAPs) for ADHD program. I am a co-founding member of the UCLA Mindful Awareness Research and an author of an award-winning book: The Mindfulness Prescription for Adult ADHD: An 8-Step Program for Strengthening Attention, Managing Emotions, and Achieving Your Goals. My new book which I co-authored, Mindfulness for Adult ADHD: A Clinician’s Guide provides evidence-based techniques to help clinicians help their adult patients cope with ADHD symptoms.

Within the department, I am a member of the UMN Adult Psychiatry Residency Program where I serve as one of the outpatient clinic supervisors for psychiatrists-in-training and support the Residency Clinical Skills Competency Training program. I also direct the Integrative Psychiatry and Wellness Program, are a member of the Wellbeing and Impact committee, and serve on the Grand Rounds committee.
