Clinical Psychologist in Irvine, CA
I have treated dissociative disorders over the past 43 years. Due to having experience with work in my office and in the hospital, I have treated people struggling with borderline personality disorder, eating disorders, panic and depression. All of these issues have often presented with dissociation. I have also treated dissociative identity disorders.
I personally suffered from panic attacks and resolved this terrifying symptom 25 years ago in therapy. As a result, I am quite acquainted with the frustration, terror, and confusion that occurs with panic. I have treated numerous individuals with this difficulty and met with successful outcomes for those who persisted with the therpy.
I am a fully trained psychoanalyst and bioenergetic analyst. As a result, I am versed in psychodynamic and body-related treatments. I have worked in these modalities for many years with couples, teens, and adults.
I am trained in psychoanalysis from the Los Angeles Psychoanalytic Society and Institute. I have taught extensively at the Newport Psychoanalytic Institute where I was formerly the president of the institute.
Couples therapy has been a consistent interest for the past thirty years. I have worked with a vast variety of couples presenting with marital difficulties.
