For over 20 years my expertise has helped people overcome the anxieties and phobias that affect their quality of life and give them back control. With individualized counseling, we will collaborate on the best methods possible for your specific needs. Combining Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Mindfulness and Compassion-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy-- all researched-based anxiety treatment approaches-- with a supportive, calm environment in a small, confidential practice, we will work together to help you overcome any anxiety and stress related disorders. 

I also offer many resources to continue your growth and help you, even when you’re not in the office, with my self-help book “Overcoming Panic, Anxiety & Phobias”, a “Calm Down” CD, and my therapist's group manual for treating anxiety disorders.
While living in Boston, Massachusetts, I was an Associate on the Cognitive Behavior Therapy Unit at McLean Hospital, a Harvard Medical School affiliate. Since moving to San Diego, I have published articles with the UCSD Department of Psychiatry on social anxiety, served on the Board of the Society of Behavioral Medicine and was the Regional Governor of the Phobia Society of America. Currently, I am a Member of the Professional Webinar and Public Education Committee of Anxiety and Depression Association of America, the leading organization for anxiety disorders.

I provide consultations to supervisors and services to employees suffering from stress in the workplace. Workshops 
and seminars for continuing education and healthcare professionals are also available.

If you are suffering from any of the following issues, call me today and let’s take back control of your life.

panic attacks • phobias/agoraphobia • fear of flying • social anxiety • generalized anxiety with  excess worry • OCD • depression • stress-related medical problems • relationship or work issues • unresolved grief

My offices are close to Hillcrest, San Diego and La Jolla off of Rte 5 and 805 near the UTC area. Intensive treatment/consultation can be arranged for out of town visitors.
