In my experience, change that endures begins when you decide to face your challenges and go through them — not get rid of them.

My Work as a Psychoanalyst and Psychoanalytic Psychotherapist

My counseling work in Encinitas brings me into contact with individuals and couples from many walks of life and ethnic backgrounds. I've worked with highly stressed engineers riding the roller coaster of the tech world, single parents trying to survive the pressures of working and raising children as well as grandparents or elders facing serious medical issues and loss.

Recently, I have begun to see increasing numbers of older adults facing the many challenges of aging.        

I have become especially familiar with those who face anxiety, depression, substance use problems and  relationship crises as well as grief and numbness due to aging and loss.

 I offer a "user-friendly" yet "no-nonsense" approach to addressing the difficulties which individuals and couples present.
