"I believe that the start of change is through self-awareness! Being aware of triggers from past wounds may guide people at a conscious level to explore an understanding of what is occurring at their unconscious level. Unconscious memories from past wounds can at times control and influence someone\'s current thought patterns, emotions and behaviors. Processing past wounds in therapy may give you more control over problematic cognitive, behavioral, and emotional patterns. I believe that people are doing the best that they can do with what they have learned. "

Oppositional Defiance Therapists
All children are oppositional from time to time. But their behavior can become incessantly and openly uncooperative such that it stands out relative to other children. Oppositional Defiant Disorder (or sometimes referred to as "ODD") tends to be evidenced by frequent temper tantrums, excessive arguing with adults, the questioning of rules, active defiance and refusal to comply with adult requests. You may also see deliberate attempts to annoy or upset people, blaming of others, being touchy or easily annoyed by others, frequent anger and resentment, mean and hateful talking when upset, a spiteful attitude and revenge seeking.

These therapists can help with oppositional defiance in 92064 or provide counseling for parents handling an oppositional defiant kid in 92064, oppositional defiant teen or oppositional defiant children in 92064.

How can I tell if a therapist is right for me?
Therapists in 92064 are able to work with a wide range of issues. They offer in person sessions as well as Teletherapy in 92064

For example, if you're seeking a marriage counselor in 92064 you'll find that most therapists are trained in marriage counseling or couples counseling in 92064 and couples therapy. And they welcome families for family counseling in 92064 or family therapy in 92064.
