I believe that healing happens when we pay attention to all the parts that make us whole—our mind, body, and soul. My theoretical orientation is influenced by Family Systems, Attachment Theory, Emotionally-Focused, Humanistic-Experiential, and Narrative approaches to treatment. This means that we will be going on an emotional journey together in which I will use an eclectic combination of clinical theories and techniques to help guide my work. I believe that the lack of emotional awareness and avoiding uncomfortable emotions can cause harm to our mind, body, and soul. My hope is to help you get to know yourself better.

“Sometimes, you have to make a decision that will break your heart but heal your soul.” - Trent Shelton Sometimes you just can’t. Can’t say no, can’t find motivation, can’t sit through another meeting, can’t stop worrying, can’t wear the mask and pretend to be okay, and/or can’t get out of bed. The list goes on, because at some point or another, we all feel like our struggle is too much to handle. But “trouble don’t last always” and you do not have to face your battles alone.

I believe that love is a fundamental experience we all want and need: Love from our partners, relationships, and even from ourselves. However, when that love doesn't work, it really hurts us. I want to work with people who feel stuck in their relationship, where that sense of connection feels broken, in disrepair, or lost. My goal and hope is to help you and your partner establish new patterns and experiences in and out of therapy, so that you can learn to express and receive the love from one another that we all need. If you want to find out more about me, please see my website at www.josephhantherapy.com

My areas of expertise include: depression, anxiety, adjustment issues, self-esteem, trauma, codependency, and life stressors. Treatment is tailored to each individual person. A holistic therapy approach is utilized, which is the combination of contemporary and alternative treatments with evidence-based practices to assist a person in achieving balance in mind, body, and energy. A deeper understanding of the whole self can lead to increased self-awareness, self-esteem, self-acceptance, and emotional/physical well-being.

My goal is to help people put their life back on track! Eating, weight and body image issues can derail a person's focus and purpose. Healing from the inside out and the outside in releases a person from the tyranny of perfection. Learning to put food and feelings into proper perspective is a realistic and achievable goal.

Do you struggle with feelings of anxiety, depression, guilt, or low self-esteem? Do you find yourself avoiding social engagements or so preoccupied with excessive worrying? Finding ways to navigate these difficult feelings can help you get back on track. I use a psychodynamic approach and CBT that focuses on uncovering patterns of behavior and ways of relating to ourselves and others that are often outside of our awareness. I also consider how our past impacts who we are today. Through acceptance and empathy, we will establish a trusting therapeutic relationship and work together toward your personal growth and self-discovery.

Genuine connection is key to health and happiness. Developing a safe and trusting relationship with ourselves, each other, and our environment creates a strong foundation for the development of a healthy and meaningful life. Trauma can interrupt our ability to create safe relationships and meaningful lives. My lived and therapeutic experience include addressing relational trauma, complex trauma, grief, life transitions, domestic violence, addiction, codependency, and other relationship issues to improve overall health and quality of life.

Being willing to explore our inner landscapes is one of the bravest things we can do. Our inner world is often shaped by our experiences and affects everything about us, from our internal sense of worth and peace, to our intimate relationships and endeavors. My approach to therapy begins with curiosity and compassion. Together, we will get curious about the parts of you that may feel anxious, depressed, depleted, overwhelmed, worthless, scared, or alone. We will explore these parts with gentleness and warmth in a way that feels safe and supportive.

We are each so much more than a reductive diagnosis or a list of symptoms or problems. I am honored to hold space and join others in full compassion and non-judgment while navigating many of the unavoidable transitions, changes, and realities of life. I come from an immigrant family with strong collectivist and cultural values of contribution and service to others, and bring a creative, reflective, philosophical approach to working with others. I believe change happens, at your pace, in nurturing corrective emotional experiences. From here, we can explore new ways of being our true selves in the world and in our relationships.

What type of San Diego mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist or psychologist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.

How to find a therapist or counselor in San Diego?
When looking to find a therapist, start by considering training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Finding a psychologist or therapist who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

How to use my insurance?
Understanding cost and insurance coverage is an important concern for many people. With some basic research and conversations with prospective therapists, you should be able to have a good understanding of the best way to afford therapy.
