Free Yourself From Worry & Fear

My expertise in treating anxiety disorders for 20+ years will provide you with specialized, 
professional counseling to help you finally overcome your anxiety and panic attack problems such as panic, phobias, social anxiety, OCD and stress management.  My approach combines Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Mindfulness Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (MCBT), and Compassion-Focused Therapy for a supportive, evidence-based path to recovery. You will receive individualized counseling specific to your anxiety problems, always based on the latest, most effective research and offered in a very compassionate manner.

While living in Boston, Mass, I was an Associate on the Cognitive Behavior Therapy Unit at McLean Hospital, a Harvard Medical School affiliate. Since my move to San Diego, I have co-authored papers with the UCSD Dept of Psychiatry on social anxiety and served as a Member of the Board of the Society of Behavioral Medicine. In addition, I have provided consultation & work place seminars for staff of managed care companies on the treatment of anxiety disorders and offered consultations for employees suffering from stress in the workplace. Currently, I am on the Professional Webinar and Public Education Committees of ADAA.org (the leading organization devoted to help with anxiety and depression). 

My self-help book, Calm Down CD and Recovery Program can provide you with additional resources. In addition, therapists can also benefit from my group guide to treating anxiety disorders.
