My approach in therapy is focused on identifying strengths rather than weaknesses. I use a strengths-based approach in helping you identify ways to maximize your greatest potential. My belief as a therapist is that YOU are the expert in the room and I am there to help guide you to the solutions you already have within yourself. My ultimate goal is to provide you with a sense of comfort and safety on the path to insight and well-being.

Life is hard! Whether it’s dealing with everyday hassles (e.g. work or family/relationship-related stress) or big life events (e.g. death of a loved one, a new diagnosis, trauma, job loss, divorce, marriage, retirement, or welcoming home a new baby), life can really take a toll on us all! If you feel like you’re worried about everything (all the time!) or if you feel like you’ve somehow lost your sense of confidence or joy along the way, I am here to help!

I invite you to think about your biggest challenge or deepest pain. Now think about the way you respond to those thoughts. Notice the judgment, self-criticism, or shame that shows up. Now consider how you would respond if you heard about the same struggle from a friend, child or sibling. The likelihood is that your response would be different: more compassionate and more accepting. This way of treating ourselves is a learned survival strategy—and just as it was learned, long ago, it can also be unlearned.

After 35 years in the San Diego area, I feel particularly well suited to working with clients with a variety of "problems in living." Managing stress, lifestyle balance, coping with relationship issues, and workplace difficulties affect us all, and having professional support and input is now not only acceptable, but crucial. And, research has shown that of all the factors that are key in predicting a positive outcome in any form of therapy, the quality of the relationship with your therapist is the most important. And that is my focus!

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 approach to therapy is warm and collaborative. I believe growth comes from enhancing our understanding of ourselves and learning to make choices that can lead us to greater freedom and lasting positive change. Removing symptoms, changing self-defeating patterns, improving self-esteem, working with our strengths, and developing healthy relationships are each a part of this meaningful process. As an Assistant Clinical Professor in the UCSD School of Medicine, I teach and supervise residents in the Psychiatry Residency Training Program.
