About me

Gender Male
Occupation Psychiatrist
Location Vancouver, BC, Canada
Introduction I've been a psychiatrist since July, 2000. Most of my clinical experience has been with university students who have come to my outpatient clinic. For the first two years of my practice, I completed a subspecialty fellowship in mood disorders, during which I was trying to help patients struggling with treatment-resistant depression or bipolar disorder. I enjoy trying to combine ideas from different fields within the sciences and humanities--I love the idea of a creative, collaborative, interdisciplinary, yet also evidence-based approach to thinking about the mind, about medicine, and about life. I particularly like to indulge in metaphor and use analogies as a part of my therapeutic style. Yet, I find that much of my work as a physician can be simple and pragmatic, and I believe that there often can be straightforward medical solutions to many of the ailments my patients tell me about.
