I pride myself on making the process of getting help and understanding problems as easy as possible. The point of getting help is to have more of the life that you want for yourself. I work collaboratively with clients to better understand themselves and the difficulties they are experiencing.

I have extensive training that I believe makes me uniquely qualified to be of assistance. I have graduate degrees from Harvard University and the California School of Professional Psychology, where I received my Ph.D. in clinical psychology. In addition, I am a psychoanalyst, having graduated from the San Diego Psychoanalytic Center with training in adult psychoanalysis.

I am also trained as an Executive Coach through the Center for Creative Leadership, a leading provider of executive leadership in the world. My work there has been with high level executives from some of the most prominent companies in the world. Again, I value translating insights into direct and applicable change, in this case with regards to being a more effective leader and executive.

In addition to psychotherapeutic services, I also provide psychological evaluations and testing, as well as consultation and supervision to other clinicians. I supervise psychiatry residents from the programs at the Naval Medical Center and the UCSD Medical School.

Specific Issue(s) I'm Skilled at Helping With

I'm particularly adept at working with personality and relationship problems, depression and anxiety, and relationship/marital problems. I'm not prone to "psychobabble," and pride myself on speaking in human terms about problems in living. That is what it comes down to... having more of what you want in your life and figuring out what gets in the way.
