Family Therapy, San Diego CA


 

Families may experience challenging issues at times in their lives. Some problems are so immense that the only means to resolving the issues is to seek treatment from a professional therapist. Family therapy is an interactive treatment process between your family and your therapist.

Family therapy can be for all family members or selected family members, utilizing different techniques depending on their needs. Research studies have repeatedly demonstrated the effectiveness of family therapy in treating the full range of mental and emotional disorders and health problems. Studies on family therapy suggest that clients who use family therapy report marked improvement in work productivity, co-worker relationships, family relationships, partner relationships, emotional health, overall health, social life, and community involvement.

My approach to family therapy is:
Communication building
Research-based
Brief
Solution-focused
Non-blaming
Emphasized building relationships rather than finger-pointing

Support has been provided to many clients across the San Diego CA area. My treatment focus is always to take into account the cultural and religious background of my clients. Respecting and understanding my clients’ cultural and personal values makes it easier for all of us to arrive at happy solutions. I strive to fully join with families so that I am able to develop an understanding of what the family is going through.

Areas that I focus on are:
Acculturation and cross-cultural transitions
Fighting and arguing
Parenting
Ineffective communication
Academic/behavioral problems of children
Divorce/custody battles
Single parent households
Substance use of family member
