"Em nossa primeira sessão juntos, lhe dou as boas-vindas ao meu consultorio e convido-o a torná-lo seu próprio espaço seguro. Eu explico que a terapia é um processo, um relacionamento e uma aventura. É também um presente de descoberta e renovação que só você pode dar a si mesmo. Nesse processo, meu papel é ouvir, apoiar, desafiar, guiar e celebrar você, à medida que você se torna mais corajoso para encarar as partes de si mesmo que estava evitando, aceitando mais a si mesmo e aos outros e sendo plenamente presente na sua vida."

Family / Marital Therapists
Therapists in San Diego using the techniques of 'family therapy' work with families or couples both together and individually to help them improve their communication skills, build on the positive aspects of their relationships, and repair harmful or negative dynamics.

As an approach to therapy, 'family therapy' (also referred to as family systems therapy, marital therapy, marriage therapy, marriage and family therapy, marital therapy and family counseling) views change in terms of the systems of interaction between family members or couples.

Family relationships often affect psychological well-being and, regardless of the origin of an issue, or whether it may be the "individual" or "family" who is presenting it, involving the family in the solution can be of great benefit. Families participate directly in sessions during which the family therapist helps conversations in a way that draws upon and builds the strengths, wisdom and support of the wider family unit.

How can I tell if a therapist is right for me?
Therapists in San Diego are able to work with a wide range of issues.

For example, if you're seeking a marriage counselor in San Diego you'll find that most therapists are trained in marriage counseling or couples counseling in San Diego and couples therapy. And they welcome families for family counseling in San Diego or family therapy in San Diego.
