Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
I don't believe in "one size fits all" with regard to psychotherapy. I make use of several treatment modalities and use them appropriate to the individual client. I believe in giving my clients "homework" between sessions when necessary to facilitate positive change in their lives. I believe that all clients have the ability within themselves to effect change and that my role as a therapist is to assist them in this process.

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.
