121 Broadway Suite 348, San Diego, ., California 92001 | 619-952-2810

I supervise doctoral interns working with the severely anxious and stressed population, many of whom have concomitant trauma and psychotic disorders. My belief is that anxiety produces a range of depressive reactions which in the extreme can cause frightening and distressing physiological symptoms such as nightmares, panic attacks, phobias, and even hallucinations. I am a trained EMDR practitioner and have years of experience with extreme stress as well as the anxiety that flows in and around episodes of depression
