You've always had a reputation for being calm. People have no clue. If they could only hear the chaos in your thoughts: "I screwed up again. I should not have said/done that. They will not like me!" Meanwhile, you are tracking your never ending to-do list. You are completely overwhelmed with decisions + choices. You see others achieving more with their day. It is tiring to have to prove yourself constantly. A part of you is pushing hard to get ahead in life. Another part of you is hitting the breaks - scared of failing again. This war with yourself is exhausting both your mind and body. All you want is to rest + just do nothing.

You are your own author, and I will walk beside you to write a story that works for you.

Hello! For 30+ years I have been both a therapist and an academic researcher, studying depression and emotion self-regulation. My perspective is scientifically informed but my focus is on the personal journey of therapy, which can be deeply rewarding and even life changing. The problems that clients bring to me vary widely and I take a collaborative, non judgmental approach toward meeting the needs of each individual. Together, we work to develop a picture of what holds them back and formulate strategies for moving toward personal goals. My greatest satisfaction is seeing a client build a life of greater ease and fulfillment.

I think we all can have a time in our lives where we reach a problem or a series of problems and are faced with the question of "how do I get through this?" or "what should I do?" Regardless of what brought you to that crossroad, therapy is a useful means to help you figure out what to do next. Your time is important and your life is meant to be full of happiness. We all are transitioning from something and have to make the choice about what is best for us. Live your life and enjoy it.

What type of mental health professional is right for me?
Some of the most common types of mental health providers in San Diego are psychologists, licensed counselors, therapists, psychotherapists, and licensed clinical social workers, all of whom diagnose mental health conditions and provide individualized treatment.

Services offered, education and credentials vary by type of mental health professional. Each professional in San Diego then may specialize in certain areas, such as depression, marriage counseling, or anxiety. Although many mental health providers are not licensed to prescribe medication, they may coordinate with a provider who can.

Both in-person and online therapy sessions are available from most psychologists.

How to find a specialist?
You can refine your search using the filters on this page. There are several categories you can filter by to find mental health professionals with the experience you are looking for. You may want to filter for CBT Psychologists in San Diego, or Child Psychologists in San Diego.

Many find it useful to use filters to view only psychologists that have experience working with certain issues, like San Diego psychologists specializing in EMDR.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Psychologists in San Diego specialize in therapeutic approaches such as CBT, EMDR, and Interpersonal Therapy (IPT), among others. Finding a psychologist or therapist who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

How to use my insurance?
Many therapists accept health insurance. Check to see if your insurance is covered. Feel free to discuss this when you contact the therapist.
