In a scenario with a separated couple, issues might include communication breakdowns, trust issues, unresolved conflicts, and possibly differing expectations for the relationship. Their needs could include guidance on effective communication, rebuilding trust, resolving past conflicts, and developing a shared vision for their future together. Their goals might involve reconnecting emotionally, improving their relationship dynamics, and ultimately rebuilding a strong and healthy partnership. They want to rebuild their relationship because they likely still care for each other, value the history and connection they share, and desire

Hello! I’m so glad you’re here. Deciding to reach out for support is a challenging but important step toward creating a life of meaning, satisfaction, and joy. Therapy is a place to express and unpack complicated feelings and negative thoughts and to practice new ways of relating and responding to yourself and others. Following treatment with me, clients typically report understanding themselves more fully, increased self-compassion and empathy, and richer, healthier communication with peers and loved ones. I care deeply about my clients and will be an active participant in helping you to create desired change.

San Diego, CA 92122
Dr. Blaire Heath grew up in Southern California and started doing volunteer work locally and abroad when she was in high school, including mission trips to Latin America and Africa. Her passion for helping others and health brought me to pursue the field of nutrition and pharmacy. However, following a medical mission trip to Haiti after the earthquake in 2010, she really felt a calling to pursue medicine and work more closely with patients. She loves that the field of mental health applies to the whole person: body, mind, and spirit and that overall health means not just addressing a single area of one’s life.

You're feeling overwhelmed by the racing thoughts in your mind. It's been difficult to trust yourself, set boundaries, and stick to them. That can be exhausting and probably has you feeling under-appreciated, resentful, and burnt out! Imagine what it might feel like to be more grounded and resourced in your body and mind. Imagine feeling more confident in your voice and speaking about your needs. I enjoy supporting women and queer folks to lead a more integrated and aligned life. If any of this resonates with you, we might be a good fit :)

My experience includes a five-year clinical position at UCSD Outpatient Psychiatric Services followed by nineteen years in private practice. Therapy is a collaborative process in which we work together to identify problems and find solutions. Therapy can provide you with the skills you need to make changes in your life.
