Working in the Silicon Valley
I see many people from the tech industry (Google, Yahoo, Apple, Linked In, etcetera) who are struggling with depression, bipolar, and anxiety and I am familiar with the unique challenges facing people working in a high pressure work environment. I have developed a unique set of resources that can help you “live creatively” with moods. There is a lot of information about my practice on this website. Look around and see if my approach to care makes sense to you. If you like what you read on this page I encourage you to fill out the online survey.

Clinicians in Mountain View
There are two clinicians in the Mountain View office –
- Dr. Peter Forster is the Clinical Director of Gateway Psychiatric Services. He specializes in the evaluation and treatment of adult depression, bipolar, anxiety, panic disorders, phobias and stress reactions. He works in Mountain View on Fridays.
- Dr. Jasmine Teleki is a Clinical Psychologist with an expertise in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and other evidence based treatments of mood and anxiety disorders. Dr. Teleki is an Adjunct Faculty at Palo Alto University where she teaches undergraduates and serves on the Board of Directors for the Santa Clara County Psychological Association. She works in the Mountain View office every day of the week and has some Saturday hours as well.
There are no administrative staff in our Mountain View psychiatrist office. You must make an appointment before coming to the office.
I believe that too many people who are wrestling with depression, or bipolar, or other mood disorders, find themselves confused by what they need to do in order to feel well, or they get stuck with less than adequate treatment, or they feel ashamed, or embarrassed about the very real problems they are dealing with.
My practice is focused on making sure that people get well (not just a little bit better) and providing the very best, evidence-based, care for depression and bipolar.
You may want to look through some of the other pages on this site to get a sense of my practice, the people I work with, and my philosophy of care.
