Deisy Cristina Boscán, Ph.D.

About Me


Hello, I’m Dr. Boscán. I am a California licensed psychologist and have graduated from post doctoral training as a psychoanalyst. It is extremely important if you are considering the services I provide that you know in advance about me, the training I have and the approach I take. With that in mind, please let me tell you a little more about my training and clinical experience.

I have more than 15 years of clinical experience working with children, adolescents and adults. As a Psychoanalyst I have received the highest level of training in my field. My expertise ranges from providing both psychoanalytic and psychological treatment for adults, adolescents and children. In addition I have post-doctoral training and offer services in pediatric neuropsychology.

I have (through June 2018) supervised Psychiatric Fellows on the 3rd Year of Residence for the University of San Diego, Department of Psychiatry, School of Medicine. I am also a member of the faculty at the San Diego Psychoanalytic Center which provides post-doctoral training in psychoanalysis, and from which I received my own psychoanalysis training. Furthermore, I serve as an expert in matters before the Family Court of the San Diego County Superior Court and in domestic and civil litigation matters before the Court.

I am a member of the International Psychoanalytic Association (IPA), where, during my psychoanalytic training, I served as the North American Vice-President of the International Psychoanalytic Studies Organization (IPSO) of IPA. I have presented a number of papers to the IPA relating to my clinical work for children and adolescents. I am also a member of the American Psychoanalytic Association (ApsaA).

If you wish to have more information about my training and the work I have done in the field, please see my Curriculum Vitae.

Now that you have a sense of my training, please take a moment to look at the "Adults" and “Children & Adolescents” pages which describe my work with adults, adolescents and children.
