NOT accepting new clients until December 2022. I believe that good therapy involves a combination of a supportive and warm relationship plus science-based therapeutic techniques. Within this framework I consider each person’s unique situation, neurodiversity, and set of problems and then tailor my approach to you or your child’s needs. Therapy should be a collaborative process, and I try to bring a sense of humor and fun to my work with you or your family .

You may feel stuck, anxious, depressed, or hopeless. However, just the courage to take the first step in knowing you want to experience your life differently takes strength. I work with my clients to expand that strength in a safe environment. When struggling with a family or friend relationship, or when experiencing increased stress from some changing circumstances in life, often unhealed issues start to surface. Now we really need support. These times are actually the ones where the most healing can occur.

Many professionals suffer from stress, anxiety, worry, or depression. Despite external success there is internal angst often impacting our daily lives and our relationships with colleagues and loved ones. Although materially successful we find ourselves feeling restless, trapped, or burnt out. I can help professionals who at times experience such feelings find their balance and regain their zest for life. After 15 years in corporate America where I saw highly functional colleagues struggle with stress and worry, I decided to become a Marriage and Family Therapist to serve this clientele to whom I could relate.

I draw from several theoretical perspectives, including family systems, psychodynamic, cognitive-behavioral, humanistic, and transpersonal approaches.
Seeking Psychotherapy is a courageous and hopeful act. While each of us comes to therapy for different reasons, we all need acceptance, empathy, and support to examine our lives and make change. I work with children, adolescents, and adults and tailor my approach to the individual needs of my client. I have helped people with a wide range of issues, including depression, anxiety, loss, trauma, addiction, parenting, and navigating difficult life transitions, such as divorce and remarriage.

Drug & Alcohol Counselor, CADAC, PhD
My name is Dr. Kamran Zafar and I am the founder and CEO of La Jolla Healing Center. I have been in recovery for more than 30 years and know how lonely it can get. Addiction can hit a person when they least expect it: when they're trying to manage an increase in their workload, fulfill obligations with family , or for no reason whatsoever. It often begins innocently — sometimes to relieve the stress of everyday life, or even just to experience the thrill of something new. Before the person knows it, they’re using alcohol or substances to cope with the negative feelings and stress in their daily lives.

This is me at the beach with Shannon, our 25 year-old daughter. My wife Vicki and I had the good fortune to raise her here in beautiful San Diego North County, where she has had the opportunity to become an accomplished surfer, sailor, diver, and nature photographer. Vicki and I are a Marriage and Family Therapist team in private practice here for 20+ years in Encinitas, California. As well as seeing couples and families, I have specialized in treating anxiety disorders and phobias, depression, alcohol and substance abuse, and adolescents. I completed my B.A.degree at the University of Connecticut and graduate training at Purdue University. Using an eclectic approach, I combine elements of cognitive-behavioral, psychodynamic, client-centered and mindfulness therapies in my practice. I am also certified in Clinical Hypnosis for use in weight loss, smoking cessation, habit control and anxiety reduction. I began focusing on treating adolescents very early in my career, and I have always enjoyed working with their youthful energy.

My experience and areas of focus include, trauma & PTSD, substance use disorders, eating disorders, adult children of alcoholics, co-dependency, attachment issues, relationship / sex & love addiction, mood disorders, personality disorders, oppositional defiance, divorced and blended family issues, individual, couples, adolescent and family systems therapy.
Why do we feel persistent shame, sadness, or hopelessness? Why do we find ourselves in situations and relationships that are hurtful and unsatisfying? Why do we repeat behaviors that hurt? Why can't we find the motivation to become who we know we can? Why are we addicted? Often it is because we are relying on maladaptive coping skills and defense mechanisms to navigate challenging or even traumatic circumstances in our lives. I wholeheartedly believe in the ability and resiliency of the human spirit. Throughout history we have evidence of individuals overcoming seemingly insurmountable odds.
