Further Information & Announcements

Every 2nd and 4th Friday of the month (every year in June, July, August, November, and December we meet the 2nd Friday ONLY7-8:30pm a FREE support group is offered to individuals struggling with OCD and other related disorders, family members of those listed above, as well as any interested professionals. Located at Mesa Vista Hospital's Day Treatment Lounge (858.278.4110) 7850 Vista Hill Ave. Kearny Mesa, CA.

The 24th annual conference is in San Francisco, CA. Plan to join us on July 6- July 9, 2017. We are looking forward to another great time to meet people and learn more about OCD and those impacted by it. Go to the  OCFoundation Website for further information. 

 Do you or a family member have intrusive  thoughts or find yourself having to spend large  amounts of time performing tasks in an attempt  to relieve anxiety? Well, you are not alone! About  9 million people in the United States suffer  from Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD),  and many more are impacted indirectly by  someone else's OCD. Unfortunately, sufferers  often go as many as 17 years without  treatment! 
The symptoms are often embarrassing and effective treatment can be hard to find; these are the things that keep people from seeking or finding the kind of help they really need.

You may have come here looking for answers about OCDHoardingBody Dysmorphic Disorder (BDD), or other related disorders either for yourself or a close friend or family member. Or perhaps you are in search for treatment that will really work and provide much needed relief. Well, you are in the right place! I hope this website will provide you with the resources to find the answers you are looking for. 

For individuals suffering with OCD please take a look at the treatment page, as it thoroughly explains the most effective treatment for OCD, Hoarding, BDD, and some impulse control disorders like hair pulling (trichotillomania) and excoriation (skin picking). Also, take advantage of the free support group that takes place every 2nd and 4th Friday of each month in San Diego (see top right of this page) to find others that you will be able to relate to and provide additional and much needed support and feedback.

For those of you who have come here concerned about a close friend or family member, there is support for you too! Sometimes the best thing you can do for your family member is to increase their motivation and learn how to support them without enabling their OCD.

My practice is open to all people no matter their age, race, or background. My office is located in Sorrento Valley; however, if you're an individual who does not live near San Diego and would still like therapy, I may be able to provide therapy via video chat (see services).
