My Approach to Helping
I am a Board-Certified Psychiatrist with a combined 15 years in medical and psychiatric environments in the U.S. and Pakistan. I treat patients with anxiety, depression or other mood disorders. I've always been interested in neuromodulation and first came upon Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) following my residency. For my clinical experience, I realized that some of my patients either do not want to take medications or develop undesirable side effects, or do not respond to medication treatment, and TMS could be an alternate treatment for such patients. My interest in using this for treatment was sealed.
I create individualized treatment plans for patients and am known for building rapport with them. I'm well-versed in various treatment modalities including medication management and psychotherapy to treat mental disorders and patients that may have Treatment-Resistant Depression, where previous treatments may not have worked for them.

I focus on TMS and medication management. I am currently seeing patients at TMS Health Solutions clinics in Roseville and El Dorado Hills. Our practice, founded in 2007, specializes in depression. We provide innovative, patient-centric care and accept most major insurance plans. We offer psychiatry services, including medication management. We are Northern California's leading provider of Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS), a highly effective, FDA-cleared, non-invasive therapy, and have witnessed great results with this treatment.
