Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
I have more than 25 years experience as a group therapist in a variety of agency, academic and private practice settings, am a member of the American Group Psychotherapy Assoc., and am on the National Registry of Certified Group Psychotherapists (CGP). I have been teaching Group Dynamics in masters courses at JFK University in Pleasanton, and CIIS in San Francisco for over a decade. I have been offering this group during the past fifteen years and have a full-time private practice in Oakland specializing in problems of depression and anxiety. The group model I use for the Improving/Deepening Relationships Group integrates general systems and object relations perspectives in order to address transferences to other group members, to the therapist, and to the group as a whole system. The later focus is particularly valuable to dealing with embedded family of origin patterns of relating that influence current adult functioning.

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.
