General and Child/Adolescence Psychiatry San Diego Expert 501838 CA(S)

Expertise Description

I have over 45 years experience in General and Child/Adolescence Psychiatry. My areas of focus include the effects we have on others; Vicissitudes/changes/dramas in all lives; highs and lows, love and losses, setbacks and successes in all our lives; Intense belief systems and cults; Human Resilience; The "Four B's: Being, Belonging, Believing and Benevolence", or how we authentically evaluate our own lives; the capacity of humans to be compassionate, inspiring, benevolent, loving, and, unfortunately our darker tendencies of aggression, hate and violence. I have provided numerous clients with consultations, deposition, and courtroom testimony as a child psychiatry expert witness for more than 40 years.
