Recommended Reading

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.

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.
