I specialize in working with adults and teens on the autism spectrum who struggle with anxiety or depression, or who need support with navigating the academic, occupational, or social world.

In addition to autism, I treat those with anxiety disorders, OCD, tic disorders, ADHD, depression, and trauma.

My background includes deep engagement in meditation, mindfulness , psychotherapy, non-violent communication, spirituality, shamanism, Buddhist psychology, and energy medicine.
Do you long to feel greater self esteem and ease? My experience helping many people has shown me that effective and worthwhile therapy unfolds by sensitive attunement to each unique client or couple. Healing has many facets: emotional, somatic, cognitive, energetic, and relational are important elements. I work with you as your skilled guide within a healing professional therapeutic relationship. If you are seeking transpersonal (spiritually inclusive) therapy I could be a great fit for you. As a long time seeker and practitioner I know well the gifts that come from the spaces where psychology meets spirituality.

I have pursued training in mindfulness and self compassion work and incorporate this into my practice.
Are you feeling lost and alone in your struggles? There are times in life when we need guidance, education and support to navigate through difficult experiences. I recall the saying, "It takes a village to raise a child". I believe we need a village around us for a lifetime. Why go it alone when there are others to help? We are social beings after all. As a therapist, I use an eclectic approach pulling from various methods to best meet your individual needs. I also work closely with other practitioners as needed. My clients often find me to be relaxed, empathic and nurturing, often using humor as a healing element.

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.
