I am pleased to announce the opening of my private psychotherapy practice in Encinitas.
After 28 years of being the CEO of large clinically based organizations serving many types of people: those with significant mental health challenges, those with intellectual and developmental challenges, individuals impacted by HIV/AIDS, children and families touching the foster care and adoption system/processes, and those with major health conditions, I will now be bringing all of that experience to my private practice.
I work wholistically and utilize a number of research/evidence-based methodologies. We will look at all areas of your life, medical history, psychological issues, developmental issues, cognitive and behavioral issues, as well as areas that are unique to you.
For adolescents, young adults, and adults, I specialize in supporting those who are challenged by significant mental health challenges: anxiety, depression, OCD, PTSD, and those with intellectual and developmental challenges and their families.
I am also committed to creating a safe and welcoming environment for those who are exploring matters of sexuality and sexual orientation.
I believe in a Team approach to great care and when appropriate, I will partner with your other care providers. For families, I will partner with you to navigate the challenges of the educational IEP system, regional center system, and other complex medical systems.
We will be meeting in-person. The field of psychotherapy took a turn to virtual services during the COVID-19 time. However, that time has passed, and I have purposely decided to open an in-person psychotherapy practice.
I have been asked why I am so passionate about in-person services. My response is simple: There is a unique experience that takes place when one sits face to face with another person, particularly one who is struggling or facing significant challenges.
It is an experience that can’t be replicated on a screen. Think of it in non-clinical language; the experience of watching a sporting event on TV versus going to the stadium and experiencing the game in-person.
The experience, the environment, the atmosphere, the energy is so unique and palpable live and in-person. Psychotherapy is the same.
The decision to contact a psychotherapist is a big decision and can be over- whelming. Please know that I handle each call and patient with the care and compassion I would want any member of my family to receive should they reach out to a medical professional.
I look forward to speaking with you about the challenges you are facing or the needs that someone in your family may be experiencing.
