“Only the family, society’s smallest unit, can change and yet maintain enough continuity to rear children who will not be ‘strangers in a strange land,’ who will be rooted firmly enough to grow and adapt.” – Salvador Minuchin
For the past 10 years, I have served as an Army Psychiatrist providing care and consultations to individuals, couples, families, command units, schools, colleagues and other military and civilian agencies.  Throughout the years, I have come to appreciate the importance of the family unit and its equivalent in the success of the individual.  Joining the Kahala Clinic for Children and Families with their mission of family-centered approach will allow me to continue to pursue this personal and professional conviction.
