Meet Dr. James Archer
I am the made up founder of Archer Psychotherapy, which was 2001 in order to help and service the San Diego area. My passion is to help others find a peace of mind from their inner demons. My speciality is in group therapy with a focus on mindfulness for anxiety and anger management.
My education from Stanford University has provided me with a solid background in Psychology and I have been a practicing psychologist for the past 15 years. Before founding Archer Psychotherapy I worked in a high need area in the Pacific Northwest. Once I found my passion lied in group therapy I decided to move back to my home state of California to found my own practice.

You’re In good Hands
Your mental health is our top priority!
We are here to ensure that you are getting the care that you need and deserve. If you are every feeling as though you are making progress with one of our therapists, let us know and we can address any concerns you may have.
Through our individual therapy sessions we aim to help our clients with a diverse range of issues. Many of the mental health issues that we help to deal with include anxiety, depression, social awkwardness, traumatic life events, and loss of a loved one, friend or pet.
Our couples counseling sessions allow partners to find renewed passion and trust in their relationships. The clinicians that specialize in couples counseling are certified in evidence-based methods and are there to help you and your significant other learn skills that allow for clear communication.
In our group therapy sessions we aim to help each group member find their voice in the group setting. We also encourage our groups to be there as a support system for each other.
“Archer Psychotherapy helped me find ways to deal with my depression. I did individual and group therapy sessions and found that it was such a relief to know that I was not alone in my struggles. I have developed skills through these sessions that help me to get myself out of my depression ‘funks’. Thank you Archer Psychology!”
“I reached out to Archer Psychotherapy in order to address my anxiety issues. Not only did I find a wonderful therapist that helped me to take a set back and be mindful of my anxiety, but they also showed me that I can see things in a different light. I will continue my sessions here until I feel that my anxiety is no longer a constant companion.”
“My partner and I decided to try couples counseling through Archer Psychotherapy. During our sessions we had a space to talk through our issues and having a third party there while discussing our issues allowed us to see where our miscommunication was happening. Our relationship is now better than ever!”
