I specialize in the evaluation and treatment of emotional and self-esteem difficulties, via understanding the inter-relationship between the mind and the brain at various levels. Most of my patients come for consultation because of problems with self-esteem, anxiety, depression, problems in succeeding (or enjoying success), or difficulties making certain life transitions. Many have been experiencing marital/couple distress. I currently teach at UCSD Medical School and the San Diego Psychoanalytic Institute.

Are you running your mind or is your mind running you? In a post COVID-19 era, many of us are adjusting to greater uncertainty while receiving less social support than previous generations. It’s certainly a profitable time for narcotic manufacturers, social media companies, and video streaming services. People have many more avenues of escaping from life, existing in a state of abstract catatonia. I work with people who are motivated to change their life and strive for their full potential.

Thank you for considering to work with me as your physician. I opened my private practice clinic because I wanted to create a safe, comfortable space where my patients are always valued and respected, where your most private concerns can be expressed without judgment or stigma. In addition to a calming, friendly environment, I also offer excellent medical knowledge and clinical judgment. In psychiatry residency at the University of California, San Diego, I ranked #1 of 58 residents by exam scores.

I can't imagine an ideal client because I see a broad range of clients and I enjoy helping them all. The typical patient who comes to me needs help with depression, anxiety, ADHD, bipolar disorder, addiction, or another disorder and may have a family history of these symptoms or diagnoses. They are usually wanting to understand their symptoms and gain an accurate understanding or diagnosis. Medication may be appropriate for some of these patients. For patients who do not find relief from medication or who experience side effects, we offer TMS (Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation) which is non-drug treatment for depression and anxiety

About Psychiatrists, meds and Psychiatric Nurses.

A Psychiatrist in San Diego is a qualified medical doctor who specializes in treating mental health issues and diagnosable disorders.

San Diego Psychiatrists differ from other mental health professionals in that they may prescribe medication as well as practice psychotherapy in treatment. Sometimes, Psychiatrists form part of a clinical team in which they will diagnose and prescribe, while psychologists or therapists provide the client's psychotherapy.

As part of a clinical assessment, Psychiatrists may conduct physical examinations, take blood tests, and order and interpret lab tests and brain image scans, such as CT scans, CAT Scans, and MRIs.

The field of psychiatry in San Diego has many sub-specialties, including pediatric psychiatry. Those who work with the elderly are called geriatric psychiatrists.

Other related sub-specialties include cognition psychiatry, addiction psychiatry, psychosomatic, forensic, reproductive medicine specialties, psychopharmacology , psychiatric genetics, neuroimaging, and clinical neurophysiology.

Psychiatric nurse practitioners in San Diego, or mental health nurse practitioners, generally have an MS degree in nursing (MSN) and a number of years of training to become certified. Psychiatric nurse practitioners are able to assess and diagnose mental health conditions and prescribe medication. San Diego Psychiatric nurse practitioners also have training that enables them to include psychotherapy with treatment.

If you're finding it difficult to find the right psychiatrist in San Diego, don't worry--you're not alone. Psychiatrists are highly specialized professionals.

If you're still finding it difficult to find a psychiatrist in San Diego, call or contact the professionals here and ask for a psychiatric referral. You can also call the psychiatric nurses in San Diego as they tend to be affiliated to a network of psychiatrists in their area ( San Diego). Or just chat to them to see if they can help.
