After practicing, studying and teaching psychotherapy for 40 years at the UC San Diego Department of Psychiatry I have integrated many different approaches to helping my patients. The most important aspect of psychotherapy is the relationship formed through an empathic understanding of the core issues and what caused them followed by a plan of action. Therapy is a collaborative process of discovery. Change comes about through understanding oneself better, learning new skills and effective ways of communicating with others. Each person's journey is unique.

To help them, I established The Relationship Institute and wrote a book titled "Intimacy After Infidelity" with my partner, Dr.
For many years I worked almost exclusively with individuals, helping them overcome depression, anxiety and other issues and maladies that were ruining their lives. Then as now, I worked to assist them to stop running from their demons, have the courage to face them and realize that they had the strength to defeat them. About 15 years ago, after hearing too many horror stories from couples about their previous couples therapy experiences, I decided to specialize in working with couples and completed advanced couples therapy training. I help couples heal and rebuild their relationships to make them loving, trusting and passionate.

With this awareness, we can work together to gain better coping skills, resolve relationship tensions,improve communication, and work towards attaining satisfying life goals.
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.

My focus in our work is to accompany you, both as a guide and a companion, in your search for a deeper sense of yourself, finding your "place in the world", both individually and in relationship. I believe you have the wisdom within for your own growth and healing. In response to the problems in our lives, we all develop survival strategies and coping mechanisms that keep us disconnected from our true self. Because we do this unconsciously, the resulting thoughts and behaviors can sometimes make us wonder if something is wrong with us.

I am trained in several therapeutic modalities including EMDR, CBT, ACT, and Mindfulness, and I enjoy helping those dealing with relationship issues, parenting challenges, eating issues, and addictions.
Have you heard of the saying, "The curious paradox is that when I accept myself just as I am, then I change," by Dr Carl Rogers? In my experience, our suffering stems from a lack of self-acceptance and self-compassion. I have also realized that it is not until we are willing to take that first step of looking at ourselves honestly and kindly, that we start living life fully. If you are feeling stuck dealing with difficult situations or repeating unhealthy habits, I can help.

Relationship Issues Therapists
While need for human connection appears to be innate, the ability to form healthy, loving relationships is learned. Some evidence suggests that the ability to form a stable relationship starts to form in infancy, in a child's earliest experiences with a caregiver who reliably meets the infant's needs for food, care, warmth, protection, stimulation, and social contact. Such relationships are not destiny, but they are theorized to establish deeply ingrained patterns of relating to others. The end of a relationship, however, is often a source of great psychological anguish.

If you're looking for a La Jolla relationship therapist, these professionals provide relationship therapy and counseling in La Jolla.
