Patient Discussing Depression

Bipolar Disorder

During my internship, I worked with patients who suffered from different types of bipolar disorder. During my work experience, I developed a great interest in this difficult condition that is difficult to manage or treat. This difficulty causes many specialists to experience frustration while trying to help these individuals diagnosed with the condition. This realization motivated me to write my doctoral dissertation research on the variations of Bipolar disorder.

Sleep Disorders

I also have 25 plus years of experience working in managment at a sleep disorder center. I  was the day-to-day specialist for patient management and learned quite a bit in this area of study. This became a specialty of mine, and I developed a passsion for making use of many ways to improve sleep quality without medication use. I received informal training under one of most knowledgeable sleep doctors / specialists in Los Angeles.

Depression

I also treat patients with major depressive and anxiety disorders. I believe that we all face depression and anxiety,, but for some it escalated iinto an illness. I worked with many individuals to eliminate or reduce depression and anxiety levels to a more  manageable level.
