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.

Drug & Alcohol Counselor, CADAC, PhD
Accommodating professionally established individuals who require total confidentiality and can not go to residential treatment centers for alcohol or substance use is my specialty.
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.

Anxiety and OCD are my specialties but I also have some training in alcohol and substance use issues, as I completed my practicum at Sharp McDonald Center, a residential substance use treatment facility.
The therapeutic relationship can be an invaluable opportunity to foster growth, take intelligent risks, and rewrite unhelpful narratives. Often the most important and difficult changes in life are internal. Moreover, the most critical changes can begin with the acceptance of a painful reality. Sometimes it is helpful to explore these realities with a supportive individual who has some distance from the situation. I find the most successful clients are curious about their own beliefs and feelings. While they want to be challenged, they also believe in the necessity of self-compassion.

I use EMDR to support healing from trauma and have extensive experience working with substance use disorders.
My passion is for people and their relationships. Eastern thought teaches us that pain is inevitable, suffering is optional; life and relationships have the ability to create struggles in everyday life that creates pain, but it is through our attitudes, behaviors, and meaning that we place ourselves in situations where we create our own suffering. By helping people find the tools to cultivate their unique skills, I believe we can find the hope and fulfillment to overcome our suffering. My focus is on individuals and couples as they search for connection, intimacy, love and success.

Areas of specialty include substance use and developmental trauma.
Currently accepting clients by referral only. I believe that there is no such thing as a bad person. I believe that all humans are fundamentally good and are deserving of love, kindness, and respect. My work as a therapist is grounded in those beliefs. I also believe that as humans, it is our job to screw up, to get stuck, and to experience discomfort, pain, loneliness, sadness, and grief. I believe that really good people can make really bad decisions and get stuck. Those problems in no way disqualify someone from being loved, treated with kindness, and held in respect.

I am EMDR trained and specialize in treating anxiety, depression, trauma, substance use disorders, self-esteem and mood disorders.
When I was a junior in high school, I began to struggle with severe anxiety and panic attacks. Even with a great support system, trying to “take a deep breathe” when panicking was just not cutting it. I needed to go deeper than that. It wasn’t until I found a counselor that allowed me to feel comfortable sharing my insecurities and fears, that I learned to take control of my worries. I instantly felt more at ease when I knew I was going to see my counselor. That is when I realized: I want to be that sense of warmth and guidance for others.

If you're suffering from depression, traumatic memories, anxiety, or OCD, Image Transformation Therapy (ImTT) can restore your effectiveness in the world and the balance in your life. I developed ImTT while working at Camp Pendleton Marine Base because I needed a treatment that could release the most intense pain, terror, and memories without the person having to experience the feelings or relive the memories. The result is that ImTT treatment enables a person to live without self-consciousness and fear -- spending more of their life in the "creative zone."
