Starting therapy is actually a pretty easy process. I hope this guide makes it even easier as you prepare for your first session. I’ve included downloadable forms, directions, contact information and a checklist of what you’ll need to do and bring.
An important part of anyone’s life is building healthy connections with others. As a San Diego individual and relationship counselor, I have created this page as a diverse guide to community resources in the San Diego area. I have tried to include a wide range of local contacts and opportunities. Also included are some general resource sites that are educational and not San Diego specific. This list will grow over time and if you have a suggestion, please don’t hesitate to contact me with your idea.
Counseling is hard work and many clients want to do more of it between sessions. Aside from putting into motion ideas of change we discuss in the office, several people read between sessions to gather more information and facilitate greater insight. I strongly believe that doing more work between sessions will help sustain motivation, increase knowledge and improve one’s self and relationships. Reading is a great tool to complement sessions and below are some topic areas and books I highly recommend. Bookstores are lined with a sea of psychology books, and I hope this list will help you choose a quality read. The list of suggestions will continue to grow, so feel free to check back for further additions. I believe that most questions are best answered by a professional so get in contact with a San Diego therapist today and call (619) 318-1901.
