About

Are you a man with problems at work, or your relationships? Do you want things to be different? Then you must do things differently. Usually we solve problems by our efforts, or with the support of friends and family. That is often best. Other times, professional guidance is required. If you want an experienced psychologist who is well informed, practical, compassionate, and collaborative, consider working with me. I am ready to help you help yourself. Just email to arrange a phone consultation without cost or obligation. Please note: I provide online therapy to California men only.
My primary clinical specialties are Bipolar Disorder & Substance Abuse, and associated problems e.g. anxiety; ADHD. Whatever the diagnosis, either you manage it, or it manages you - it's not your fault, it's your responsibility. Learn to take the advantages that come with how your nervous system operates. The advantages are real.
Currently a Teaching Professor at UCSF, offering medical students, residents & fellows evidence based treatments for bipolar disorder, anxiety, and addictions. I do my best to walk the walk, not just talk the talk. Real change is possible, a better life can be yours. Be on your side, take the first step towards who you are at your best.
