I am always curious about what brings clients into psychotherapy at a particular juncture of their lives and what they are hoping to be different as a result of conversations with someone like me. Once the responses to this curiosity are articulated and there is a clear purpose and direction for therapy, I listen for what a client already knows and what the client strengths and personal resources currently are and what they have been in the past. This becomes the context for conversations which have the possibility of leading toward preferred changes in the client's life and in its direction.

Why do we feel persistent guilt, shame, sadness, anxiousness, anger or hopelessness? Why do we find ourselves in situations and relationships that are hurtful and unsatisfying? Why do we repeat unhealthy behaviors? Why can't we find the motivation to become who we know we are capable to be? Why are we addicted? Often it is because we are relying on maladaptive coping skills and defense mechanisms to navigate challenging or even traumatic experiences. I whole-heartedly believe in the ability and resiliency of the human spirit and I offer a safe and therapeutic environment in which to process, learn, grow and develop healthier skills.

Does your child have a history of a head injury or any other medical concerns that caused a decline/loss of skills?

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.

My practice is primarily devoted to working with young women and trauma victims. However, I see others also. Therapy can help us express our feelings, learn new skills, and help us find effective solutions to issues we face. In a confidential environment, I strive to create an atmosphere that is safe, nurturing and supportive. My work with young women is focused on supporting them on their journey through adolescents into womanhood, which is a road well-traveled, but not always gracefully. I am well trained in helping young women experiencing difficulties in their school, family and/or social lives.
