Clinical Experience & Positions


Current Clinical Positions

1998 – present

Child and Family Psychiatry
San Diego, Del Mar, & Solana Beach, CA 

In my current practice I see infant, children, adolescents, and adults in a family oriented practice where about half of the people have difficulties with development, relating, communicating, and learning, mainly Autism and related challenges, and the other half have more typical neurobehavioral or psychiatric difficulties such as Bipolar Disorder, Tourette’s Syndrome, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, Depression, Anxiety, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, and others. This includes conducting and supervising Intensive Behavioral Interventions for infants and young children through adolescents and adults with autism and other developmental disorders (1992 – present); treatment of chronically institutionalized children, adolescents and adults (1990 – present); and treatment of VIP patients and families in the mental health system (1986 – present).
