Dr. Taeko Uchino-Dicarlo at Positive Psychology Inc, PsyD, Psychologist in San Diego, CA


We believe that each person has the potential to grow and realize happiness at any age. Our ultimate focus in therapy is to increase fulfillment in our life, not to merely eliminate negativity or "symptoms." The sources of happiness and the journey to get in touch with happiness are unique to each person.

We have worked extensively with people who have made their lives more joyful and meaningful despite the challenges including the following:
  • stress
  • depression
  • death/loss of a loved one
  • abuse, violence
  • traumatic events (racism, war, sexual assault, traffic accident, birth trauma etc.)
  • anxiety (panic attacks, excessive worrying, obsessions and compulsions)
  • relationship problems (with a romantic partner/ a spouse, (step) children, (step) grandchildren, (step) siblings, (step) parents, friends, coworkers, etc.)
  • communication difficulties
  • sexual problems
  • cultural adjustment
  • addictions
  • death and dying, chronic pain, physical illnesses.
We also provide hypnosis for a peaceful and smooth birth, as well as hypnosis for improving mood, gaining self confidence, and improving relaxation.
We offer individual, couples, and family therapy.
Positive Psychology Inc. welcomes diversity and supports the LGBTQIA+ community.
We are group of doctors (psychologists and postdoctoral fellows) who have lived experiences belonging to marginalized groups and have worked extensively with both marginalized and non- marginalized people. We believe in social justice and maximizing people’s potentials.
We stand in solidarity with the Black, Indigenous, Asian, and Latinx communities as well as other people of color. We welcome diversity and stand against systemic oppression, injustice, and violence against marginalized communities.
We continue to examine our own privileges and biases and humbly learn in order to become better neighbors and advocates. We challenge racist policies and we are committed to be antiracists.
We cherish the diversity of humanity. We are committed to creating the safe space to foster healing and growth.
Yes, life poses obstacles. But a personalized approach created just for you can make life more fulfilling, joyful, and meaningful!
