About

Is your life not where you want it to be? Change is hard. While doing things differently can feel uncomfortable at first, it is possible to do, and becomes more comfortable with time. Change often applies to the behaviors we engage in, or the thoughts that we have. Change can also apply to our relationship with our thoughts, and it is powerful to become less tied to the random thoughts that appear in our head. Let us help you with this! We are passionate about helping people get unstuck and move forward in their lives. Our approach is collaborative and non-judgmental, and includes warmth, compassion and humor.
We focus on health psychology, diabetes, chronic disease, eating disorders, lifestyle medicine, anxiety, depression, and wellness. We integrate treatments, including Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Motivational Interviewing, mindfulness, self-compassion and positive psychology.
We provide a tele-health space in California that is weight inclusive, anti-racist and LGBTQ+ allied. Dr. Liana Abascal (she/her) has been in practice in San Diego since 2009. You can also work with her psychological associate, Dr. Carolyn Clarke (she/her), for a reduced fee. We look forward to helping you create and sustain change in your life.
