I have a broad clinical background but have worked the most with trauma and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), depression , anxiety, other mood disorders, adult ADHD, and adjustment concerns.
I work with adults throughout their entire lifespan, ranging from young adults to older adults. I have an informal and energetic approach to therapy, which encourages active collaboration in both treatment planning and therapeutic execution. I like to think of myself as a guide, providing you with new skill as well as a responsive source of objective feedback on how these skills are impacting your overall functioning. I'm just as human as you are and expect to engage in a collaborative process where you find yourself able to open up and give me feedback just as easily as I share feedback and skills with you.

This is me at the beach with Shannon, our 25 year-old daughter. My wife Vicki and I had the good fortune to raise her here in beautiful San Diego North County, where she has had the opportunity to become an accomplished surfer, sailor, diver, and nature photographer. Vicki and I are a Marriage and Family Therapist team in private practice here for 20+ years in Encinitas, California. As well as seeing couples and families, I have specialized in treating anxiety disorders and phobias, depression , alcohol and substance abuse, and adolescents. I completed my B.A.degree at the University of Connecticut and graduate training at Purdue University. Using an eclectic approach, I combine elements of cognitive-behavioral, psychodynamic, client-centered and mindfulness therapies in my practice. I am also certified in Clinical Hypnosis for use in weight loss, smoking cessation, habit control and anxiety reduction. I began focusing on treating adolescents very early in my career, and I have always enjoyed working with their youthful energy. Helping parents to work more closely together and develope simple and effective parenting skills can transform a stressful, contentious family life i

As a psychotherapist, I use a holistic approach that blends clinical research with Eastern wisdom. I have trained extensively for a decade with renowned Psychiatrist, Dr. Jeffery M. Schwartz in his Four Step Method, which combines Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy with the Buddhist principle of Mindfulness. Although, the Four Steps was originally created to treat OCD, my recent collaboration in the advancement of the Four Steps has shown that it is also successful for various circumstances including anxiety, depression , phobias, addiction, and eating disorders. My work is highlighted in Dr. Jeffrey M. Schwartz's new book, "You Are Not Your Brain".

We are living in uncertain and uneasy times right now. I believe that taking care of your mental health is a necessity and not a luxury. If you are struggling to navigate your emotions you are not alone. We are seeing a rise in anxiety, depression & conflict within relationships. Are you arguing with your partner & struggling to find common ground, or holding resentments? Are you feeling more anxious & fearful or find yourself crying more often and not feeling like yourself?

In life, challenges arise — relationship conflict, life transitions, fertility struggles and complicated pregnancies, postpartum anxiety, depression , anger. What do you do? Even the most supportive and loving relationships face difficulties. Many couples and individuals ignore the issues, assuming “things will work themselves out on their own,” and continue to suffer in silence. But you deserve to feel heard and understood. The ability to turn adversity into strength is an empowering skill available to everyone, with the right tools. I offer teletherapy as well as in-person therapy, for your convenience.

Relying on more than 15 years of clinical experience, I treat depression , anxiety, and addictions, among other issues. While I utilize evidence-based treatments, I practice from a client-centered perspective. My approach rests on compassion, as I fundamentally practice from a humanistic slant. I go to great lengths to avoid the type of stigmatizing language that especially plagues the addiction industry. There are no "addicts."

Most of us have struggled at some point with some form of stress, anxiety, depression , grief, anger, and various relationships. Obtaining clarity and relief is often achievable much sooner than realized by understanding your current attitudes, beliefs, and experiences utilizing traditional talk therapy along with mindfulness skills. Learning how to obtain a calmer energy more quickly and effectively when stress arises is foundational for our improved moods and relationships.

Depression Therapists
Depressive disorders are characterized by persistent feelings of sadness and worthlessness and a lack of desire to engage in formerly pleasurable activities. Depression is not a passing blue mood, which almost everyone experiences from time to time, but a complex mind/body illness that interferes with everyday functioning. It not only darkens one's outlook, it is commonly marked by sleep problems and changes in energy levels and appetite. It alters the structure and function of nerve cells so that it disrupts the way the brain processes information and interprets experience.

Despite feelings of hopelessness and worthlessness, depression is a treatable condition. It can be treated with psychotherapy by depression therapists in Encinitas. As with many illnesses, the earlier treatment begins, the more effective it can be and the greater the likelihood that recurrence can be prevented.

Psychotherapy addresses the thinking patterns that precipitate depression, and studies show that it prevents recurrence. Drug therapy is often helpful in relieving symptoms, such as severe anxiety, so that people can engage in meaningful psychotherapy.
