We offer tailored psychiatry and psychotherapy services in downtown San Francisco. Welcome to our San Francisco Bay Area psychiatry practice, offering psychotherapy and medication consultation, rooted in an integrative psychiatry model. We use the term "integrative" to describe a holistic approach to psychiatric care that draws upon conventional Western and complementary therapies. During our comprehensive evaluation that explores possible biological, lifestyle, psychological, and environmental contributions to symptoms, we work with clients to develop an integrated treatment plan drawing upon our specialties in psychotherapy, psychopharmacology, herbal medicines, and mindfulness-based approaches.

The ‘Green Tea Bitch’ – Stereotyping Chinese Women
The city itself has, among its many nicknames, the nicknames "gay capital of the world" and "the gay Mecca", and has been described as "the original 'gay-friendly city'". These transient and diverse populations thrust into a relatively anarchic environment were less likely to conform to social conventions. For example, with an unbalanced gender ratio, men often assumed roles conventionally assigned to women in social and domestic settings. Cross-gender dress and same-sex dancing were prevalent at city masquerade balls where some men assumed the traditional role of women going so far as to wear female attire. Cross-dressing is still an important part of LGBT culture in the city today.
I have a general psychotherapy practice. I have found that the range of people who feel comfortable working with me are quite varied with regard to gender, age, stage of life, cultural background and sexual orientation. Many of the people I see have achieved a degree of success, but remain unsatisfied with some aspect of their life. In spite of success they may experience esteem issues, battle anxiety or depression, or struggle in their relationships.
