Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
I work with couples, teens, and adults in a caring and supportive environment. My particular areas of interest are:

  • Working with adolescents and their families, to help them navigate the difficult issues of identity-formation, independence-versus-nurturing, and communication challenges.

  • Working with people experiencing identity issues of all sorts, especially as they come up in the adolescent and/or mid-life years.

  • Working with adolescents who were adopted into their families or who have spent time in the foster-care system, especially as these experiences affect their sense of themselves.

  • Working with people who are struggling to manage their symptoms of ADHD and/or Bipolar Disorder: helping with self-monitoring, organization, and adjusting to the changes experienced with prescribed medications.

  • I consider it an honor to work with each of my clients, and I welcome your inquiries.

    Featured Therapist

    Angie Burch, M.A.
    Pamela J. Blawusch, M.A.

    Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist
    Carlsbad, CA

    I provide a therapeutic environment that allows individuals and couples to explore ideas, beliefs, life experiences, thoughts and feelings that may stand in the way of being who you truly want to be. I can help point out repeating dysfunctional patterns that may exsist in relationships at home, at work and with friends and family.I teach people how to respond in their lives versus getting caught in reacting to personalities and events.
