Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
As an experienced counselor-therapist one realization that I have gained is that while both women and men struggle with their personal and relationship issues, women are more likely to admit that they are hurting and seek counseling help. Men have more difficulty simply recognizing their own personal suffering, therefore, are less likely to ask for help from a counselor. Men suffer in silence and isolation. One of my goals as a therapist is to get the message out to the adult male population that men suffer emotionally-mentally-spiritually and in their relationships and to encourage taking a brave step of seeking help with a male counselor. It takes courage to admit to one's own hurt and suffering. I welcome the opportunity to talk about what's going on in your mind and heart and help find the solutions that will help you heal.

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.
