Are you looking for a doctor who provides not only medicine, but therapy as well? Hello there, I'm Paul Smith. I am a psychiatrist who specializes in a combination approach to mental health problems, since research shows most psychiatric issues respond better to a combination of medicine and therapy than either one alone. After a comprehensive initial evaluation, you and I will work together to determine the best treatment plan for you. I offer a menu of services, from medicine, to therapy, or both, based on your unique needs.

During psychiatry residency here in San Diego, I trained in a number of therapy modalities, including Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy, Psychodynamic Psychotherapy, and Interpersonal Psychotherapy. I often employ a blended approach, which allows me to adapt my therapeutic style to meet your needs.

In order to treat you as a whole person, I combine psychotherapy with medicine to optimize the best possible treatment for you as an individual. Let's begin your journey toward recovery, together.
