Hello and welcome. I am a licensed clinical psychologist (PSY 26208) working in private practice in the East Village/Downtown area. I have been serving the San Diego community for nearly a decade. I received both my masters and doctoral degrees from the California School of Professional Psychology at Alliant International University. Beyond that, I have earned a specialization in psychoanalytic psychotherapy from the San Diego Psychoanalytic Society and Institute. My clinical experience has been extensive, working in various settings and with very diverse populations.

Dr. Margaret Sawires
Licensed Clinical Psychologist
PSY 26208

I have a profound appreciation for the challenges my patients face, as well as the difficulty in seeking help. Because of this, I strive to foster a safe, warm, and inviting environment in which to discuss troubling issues, making the process of getting help as comfortable as possible.

I’m also mindful of the vast complexity and uniqueness of each individual. For this reason, I utilize treatment methods that are dynamic and tailored to fit each individual’s distinct set of needs.

I pride myself in working hard to gain a deeper, more comprehensive understanding of the problems my patients face, and work collaboratively with them to achieve the various goals they have for themselves. My approach is warm, compassionate, honest, and engaging.

I consider myself rather committed to those I work with, offering flexibility of fees, appointment times, and phone consultations. Please don’t hesitate to contact me directly, as I’d be happy to assist.
