Two of the most important aspects of a relationship with my patients is that they know how much I care about them and the issues they come to me for. Secondly, I want my patients to know how much I value their trust in me. My patients can count on me to give them my presence, focus and attention as we work through their mental health issues. I believe that a healthy, caring relationship with a doctor that knows you--as a person--is vital to successful outcomes. In order to achieve these values I've chosen to primarily work at two concierge practices in San Diego.

My approach is based on integrative psychiatry, which uses medications, therapy and complementary medicine to treat the whole person, not just the symptoms. I address the combined impact of sleep, lifestyle, relationships, nutrition and chronic medical conditions on well-being, and use cutting edge tools like genetic testing to guide personalized treatment with medication and supplements. I consider the patient’s cultural background in my assessments and I can provide treatment in Spanish, Portuguese, French and Italian. My goal is to help my patients create lasting changes and build vitality, resilience and purpose in life.

Dialectical (DBT) Psychiatrists
Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) is the treatment most closely associated with Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD). Psychiatrists practice DBT in both individual and group sessions. The therapy combines elements of CBT to help with regulating emotion through distress tolerance and mindfulness. The goal of Dialectical Behavior Therapy is to alleviate the intense emotional pain associated with BPD. Its core assumption is that change and acceptance are intertwined. We typically think of our efforts to change things as emerging out of non-acceptance. We either decide to accept things as they are or we seek to change: through DBT it's not a case of change or acceptance, but resolving the conflicts to allow for self-acceptance and constructive change.

If you're looking for DBT therapy in San Diego or for a San Diego DBT psychiatrist these professionals provide dialectical behavior therapy, DBT group therapy, DBT therapy, dialectic behavioral therapy (which is a common misspelling) and dialectical therapy. They provide dialectical counseling, DBT counseling in San Diego and DBT treatment. They include DBT groups, DBT therapists, DBT psychologists and DBT counseling.
