My specialties include anxiety, depression, grief and loss, family and relationship conflicts, teenagers, school problems, couples, substance use, addiction, co-dependency, adjustment and integration issues, immigration and acculturation trauma, incarceration, and racial trauma.
I approach this field of psychotherapy as a sacred space. A space of human connectivity. A space safe and free of judgments and biases. I attempt to provide the utmost empathy and a safe space for my clients to be able to address the issues they need help with. I believe in being solution-focused while addressing the underlying causes of repetitive patterns in order to stop the self-destructive cycles that produce unfavorable results. My goal is to help you to change your behavior to promote positive outcomes towards your mental and emotional wellbeing.

I have worked with issues of eating disorders, substance use, depression, and trauma.
Ask yourself how much guilt and shame are impacting you? What areas in your life are you avoiding? My passion lies in working with individuals desiring to achieve more autonomy, addressing areas of shame/guilt and avoidance, establishing strong boundaries for themselves, and developing parts of one's identity. It takes courage to seek the help and desire to work through your issues. Through therapy, we can address how your struggles are impeding on your daily life and relationships. We will work on ways to feel safe, empowered, and to have the coping skills to manage them.

Accommodating professionally established individuals who require total confidentiality and can not go to residential treatment centers for alcohol or substance use is my specialty.
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.

Being driven to succeed can be a mixed blessing. On the one hand, your strong work ethic and drive towards accomplishment have probably gotten you to where you are today—possibly even in the face of major challenges or hardships. On the other hand, when our self-worth is defined by our productivity, it can feel very fragile. Anxiety, chronic stress, burnout, and difficulty prioritizing ourselves or our relationships is often the result. I work with professionals and students who are navigating these challenges to develop healthier, more balanced relationships with themselves, their careers, and the important people in their lives.

Do you wonder when it will be someone else’s turn to take care of everything so you can take a moment to breathe, feel confident, and trust in yourself? If you relate to these questions, perhaps you are looking for a therapist to help you break free from the vicious cycle of anxiety and self-judgment. Maybe you are looking for someone who will support your work to build a true sense of self and a foundation you use to trust yourself.

Have you heard of the saying, "The curious paradox is that when I accept myself just as I am, then I change," by Dr Carl Rogers? In my experience, our suffering stems from a lack of self-acceptance and self-compassion. I have also realized that it is not until we are willing to take that first step of looking at ourselves honestly and kindly, that we start living life fully. If you are feeling stuck dealing with difficult situations or repeating unhealthy habits, I can help.

Teletherapy
Teletherapy and Online counseling have grown enormously as a medium for therapy since the advent of social distancing. Most therapists are happy to provide sessions by video or phone.

All professionals are licensed to provide video therapy to clients within the State in which they hold their license. Cross State licensing exists, but is rare.

So if you're a client in California, this list of teletherapists are licensed to provide therapy to you online (by phone, video or text based chat) because they are within your state. They are sorted nearest to furthest, with professionals in California listed first.

Teletherapy via phone or video can be very similar to conventional in person sessions. The message is the same, even if the medium is different. There are some advantages in the form of convenience, lack of travel and being in comfort of your own home. Set against those, professionals find it more difficult to read non-verbal signals of their clients, and you may find you yourself can be more easily distracted.
