Finding the right therapist

My Philosophy

I’m Sylvia Flanagan and a licensed Marriage & Family Therapist in San Diego. I have over 20 years of experience and offer therapy to individuals and couples. Whether you seek counseling to improve a relationship, get support during a rough transition, or enhance personal growth, therapy can be a great resource.

Finding a therapist you’re comfortable with is important. I work hard to create a comfortable environment allowing people to relax, reflect and examine patterns which have led to individual or relational dissatisfaction.

I support clients transitioning through difficult circumstances or periods of life. I nudge clients away from the familiar where they can make new discoveries, reach goals and have richer lives and more satisfying relationships. While I offer many suggestions and highlight unhealthy patterns, I regard each person as the expert in their life and hope they filter what I offer through their own lens of intuition and belief.

I offer individual counseling, couples therapy and premarital counseling. The issues I work with are diverse and range from problems arising from sudden circumstantial changes to long standing and complex struggles. My approach to counseling is varied since individual needs and circumstances inform the methods I use. I don’t approach any two people the same and personalize my methods for each situation and client
