Psychologist – Dr. Charles M. Cutler

Help for emotional and psychological problems

Charles M. Cutler, Ph.D., has a clinical psychology practice which involves work with adults, seniors and adolescents. Based in La Jolla, California, he works with individuals, couples and families who present with a wide variety of clinical problems. Problems may be acute or chronic, and Dr. Cutler will tailor the treatment to each individual situation.

Dr. Cutler is a psychologist and psychoanalyst with advanced training. He is a faculty member of the San Diego Psychoanalytic Center where he teaches and supervises psychiatrists, psychologists and social workers.



Based on an initial consultation, Dr. Cutler will work with you to determine the type of treatment best suited to your specific needs. He will develop a therapeutic strategy that fits within whatever practical constraints you may have.

This may be short-term psychotherapy focused on delimited problems, or long-term psychoanalytic psychotherapy or psychoanalysis intended to address issues of a more persistent and pervasive nature.

No matter what you may believe, you have the capacity to grow and create a more meaningful life. All that’s required is a willingness to try, persistence and a bit of hope.

Working with Dr. Cutler, you can make sense of things, lessen the pain you feel, overcome stuck places and find your way ahead. Whether you’re suffering from anxiety, depression, loneliness, relationship issues or low self-esteem, these issues will be addressed and you’ll begin to find answers.
