Welcome to my practice. I have about 15 years of clinical experience and have been featured on NBC/KCAL/HLN as an expert psychologist. I work primarily with men who have hit “rock bottom” and would like help getting up. These men are often in crisis when we first meet. The issues I address are typically related to unhealthy sexual behaviors, infidelity, financial recklessness, gambling , drugs/alcohol, dishonesty/lying, and relational conflicts. My therapy approach is a combination of psychoanalytic, cognitive-behavioral, and the 12-Step recovery model. I also share insight from my own painful but redemptive recovery journey.

Living a life with addiction is demanding, challenging, and anxiety-provoking. Whether you are struggling to manage your sobriety or your loved one is in recovery, I understand how difficult it can be to live a "normal life." I have experience working with teens and adults who are striving to find balance, create healthier family dynamics, and address traumas that have contributed to substance use. In addition to working in the addiction field, I also have years of experience supporting individuals with anxiety, depression, and stressors related to life transitions (i.e. career change, relationship issues, failure to launch).

"I am NOT good enough, I am NOT lovable & I have to be perfect." Sound familiar? Does it look "PERFECT" on the outside but struggling internally? Does something feel off even though it seems life is all together? We live in a fast-paced world. The expectation is for us to have everything together: the perfect relationship, job, home, friends, body, high self-esteem, and social media posts. The reality is, we have real emotions, feelings, and life challenges. Even the strongest of us need some support in forcing our inner self-sabtoging critic to sashay away. Together, let's create the life you've always wanted.

Gambling Therapists
A compulsive gambler or a pathological gambler is someone who is unable to resist his or her impulses to gamble. The urge to gamble becomes so great that tension can only be relieved by more gambling.

There is a very fine line between problem gambling or Newport Beach gambling addiction and gambling too much. The critical sign of problem gambling is often hidden from awareness, with denial. Many gamblers in Newport Beach typically do not know they have a problem. Admitting you have a problem, or may have a problem, is the first step to recovery.

Treatment options include individual and group psychotherapy, and self-help support groups such as Gamblers Anonymous (a 12-step program for gamblers). Abstinence principles that apply to other types of addiction are also relevant in the treatment of compulsive gambling behavior in Newport Beach.

Recently, medications such as antidepressants, opioid antagonists, and mood stabilizers have been shown to be beneficial in combination with gambling treatment by a Newport Beach gambling therapist or gambling therapists in Newport Beach or those experienced with gambling behaviors in Newport Beach.
