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.

I specialize in individual and couples psychoanalysis and psychoanalytic psychotherapy.
Are you looking for insight with something in your life that you are not satisfied with?Maybe I can help. I have worked with many different issues in the 20 years that I have been in practice. I hold a great deal of respect for those who are open to working on whatever problems bring them in. Whether it's depression, anxiety, relationship conflicts, understanding yourself better, repetitive destructive patterns or addictions, I believe a supportive and empathic approach is crucial. I also believe that understanding what led us to our struggles is helpful in making the changes we want.

Play therapy is an important component of the specialized child psychoanalytic training process that enables me to develop a relationship with the child.
As a psychoanalyst I believe that an individual's feelings and behaviors are motivated by a variety of unconscious factors often resulting in people feeling stuck. Psychoanalysis helps individuals finally break these habits by understanding their root causes and enable significant changes at the very core of one's emotional responses. Using these experiences, the analyst helps the patient work on a deeply unconscious level to eliminate unproductive and destructive patterns. This opens the patient to new, fresh and genuine experiences and solutions in their lives. This process is achievable through empathy and respect.

I am also involved in the following: Consultation to US Navy psychiatry residents; Ethics Committee, San Diego Psychological Association; Faculty, San Diego Psychoanalytic Society and Institute and served on the Board of Directors as a Vice President.
People seek a psychotherapist because they are experiencing emotional distress, often caused by issues related to relationships, family, marital problems, stress, and general dissatisfaction with one's life or work. My job as a psychologist is to find a path leading to both relief of these symptoms and to an understanding of oneself, which together provide for both short term and long term relief from these states. I do this by providing a non-judgmental and supportive therapeutic environment which promotes a deeper understanding and exploration of oneself, with the belief that this increased self-awareness ultimately leads to positive changes and better coping skills.

I invite you to think about your biggest challenge or deepest pain. Now think about the way you respond to those thoughts. Notice the judgment, self-criticism, or shame that shows up. Now consider how you would respond if you heard about the same struggle from a friend, child or sibling. The likelihood is that your response would be different: more compassionate and more accepting. This way of treating ourselves is a learned survival strategy—and just as it was learned, long ago, it can also be unlearned.
