He is genuine and warm in the room, and places heavy importance on the therapeutic relationship which can help foster a safe environment. Dr. Tajii also enjoys challenging his clients to be the best version of themselves and assist them in finding ways out of areas in which they feel “stuck.” Dr. Tajii loves being a therapist in San Diego due to the multiculturally diverse communities and the slower pace of the city (slower at least compared to LA).
Dr. Tajii completed his American Psychological Association (APA) accredited Psychology Doctorate in Clinical Psychology at the University of La Verne. He completed his pre-doctoral internship at Richard J. Donovan Correctional Facility in San Diego. Dr. Tajii came to enjoy the community and decided to continue practicing therapy in San Diego.

Dr. Tajii is an in-network therapist for Cigna in San Diego.
