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.

Living a life with addiction is demanding, challenging, and anxiety-provoking. Whether you are struggling to manage your sobriety or your loved one is in recovery, I understand how difficult it can be to live a "normal life." I have experience working with teens and adults who are striving to find balance, create healthier family dynamics, and address traumas that have contributed to substance use. In addition to working in the addiction field, I also have years of experience supporting individuals with anxiety, depression, and stressors related to life transitions (i.e. career change, relationship issues, failure to launch).

I am EMDR trained and specialize in treating anxiety, depression, trauma, substance use disorders, self-esteem and mood disorders.
When I was a junior in high school, I began to struggle with severe anxiety and panic attacks. Even with a great support system, trying to “take a deep breathe” when panicking was just not cutting it. I needed to go deeper than that. It wasn’t until I found a counselor that allowed me to feel comfortable sharing my insecurities and fears, that I learned to take control of my worries. I instantly felt more at ease when I knew I was going to see my counselor. That is when I realized: I want to be that sense of warmth and guidance for others.

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.
