I am a child psychiatrist and antiracist warrior based in LA. My clinical care blends kismet, knowledge, and biomedicine to psychiatric fairy godmother in children, adults, and families’ lives. I write extensively about antiracist clinical care and the imperative to give people the full informed consent about the harms baked into (mental) health “care” that is uncaring and careless. I am presently launching my Antiracism in Mental Health Fellowship while developing my first book about How They Train Us (Doctors) to Be Monsters. My goals in life are to be featured in Vogue Street Style and to win Macarthur Genius Fellow award to gut and overhaul the entire medical educational system. If I were a Barbie, I would be Abolish the police Barbie or Shirley Chisolm Barbie, unbought, unbossed, and decked in pink. My fur babies Saint and Sachi comprise the 25 pounds of combined doxie terror making up my security detail. Robyn’s “Dancing on My Own” is the soundtrack to my life.
