I specialize in the psychology of men. I treat men experiencing sadness, control issues, stress, worry, and anger management. During my postdoctoral fellowship, I treated active military diagnosed with depression, anxiety , substance abuse, and PTSD by conducting both individual and group therapy. Working with active military, I learned how to gain the individual's trust and confidence to let me into their lives, providing a nonjudgmental space to process life's events. My research has concentrated on men's issues. My doctoral dissertation focused on professional boxers and how they adjusted to retirement once the fame and fortune was gone.

Anxiety and depression are often a result of repeatedly not getting your needs met.
You're a people-pleaser, a peacemaker, a caretaker, a fixer, a perfectionist, and the best friend/partner/daughter/co-worker anyone could imagine. Yet somehow you feel burned out, secretly resentful of others that get their needs met, and uncertain of your own feelings, thoughts, and needs and what to do with them. Maybe you even know what to do but don't take the steps to get your needs met. You find yourself feeling anxious and depressed after years of going without getting your needs met and/or from unresolved trauma that you continue to ignore and hope will resolve itself.

Life never fails to surprise. Though we expect things to go a certain way, problems inevitably arise. Jobs can suddenly change, marriages can struggle, we lose people we love, unexpectedly. How we manage the challenges of life has a considerable bearing on our mental health. Therapy is an invaluable tool to help in the coping process. Therapy can improve your moods, quiet fears , and brighten outlooks on life. It can help support and focus you as you consider difficult choices. It can heal wounded bonds and help you recover feelings of love and connection.

I primarily use Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) to help clients recover from trauma and other life distressing experiences, including PTSD, anxiety , depression and panic disorders.
Over the last 20 years I have worked as a therapist with diverse populations in private practice, community based programs and facilities that treat mental health, eating disorders and substance use disorders. Through the use of compassion, empathy, and humor, I have helped clients gain insight, identify coping strategies, increase self esteem, use healthy communication, improve relationships, and work through the stages of life. I understand that it takes strength and courage to participate in therapy and make intentional efforts to support and understand clients by checking in with them and being open to feedback.

My experience includes working with primarily with adults struggling with depression, anxiety , PTSD and different forms of trauma.
Welcome! Finding a therapist that you connect with can be the first step towards healing and feeling better. Whether you're suffering from depression, anxiety , PTSD or just feeling stuck, therapy can offer many benefits. Sometimes there are just seasons in our lives that are more difficult than others. I believe that these seasons can provide insight and growth opportunities. If together we can look at what is causing your suffering, perhaps you can learn something about yourself and start to heal. But first you must start the journey. Say yes to that part of yourself that wants to heal.

As children, we were asked, "What would you like to be when you grow up?" We mostly answered " A Fireman! A Princess! A Teacher! A Policeman!" As children growing into adulthood, we truly have no idea of the road ahead. One full of unexpected journeys, peaks and plateaus, that we as innocent, little children never would have imagined we would be on. Maybe you have been on a road of depression or substance abuse, struggling with anxiety , or hopelessness. Whatever it is you are facing, we can and will walk this road together. I would like to have the opportunity to walk with you on this journey to find and reach your potential in life

I base my work on evidence-based modalities and have experience in treating individuals, families, and couples that struggle with relational issues, stress, insomnia, depression, anxiety , chronic illness, and grief.
Sometimes life gets thrown at us and we feel stuck and too overwhelmed to navigate through it by ourselves. There are times when we feel disconnected from our partner and other people around us. I believe that each one of us has an innate capacity to learn, heal, and grow by accessing our inner strengths. My goal is to help you increase your self-awareness, find new coping strategies, make life decisions that are cohesive with your core values, and to reconnect with your loved ones. I believe the most important thing in our lives are our relationships.

Anxiety Therapists
At the core of anxiety is a mistaken appraisal of danger in which threats are exaggerated, triggering an array of negative feelings that overwhelm patients and lead to avoidant behavior. Therapists take aim at the three big components of anxiety—worry, physical arousal or edginess, and avoidance—by teaching one or more well-researched programs of skills that are custom-tailored to patients’ own worst thoughts.

If you're looking for a San Diego anxiety therapist, these professionals provide anxiety therapy and counseling in San Diego.
