Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
I enjoy working with a diverse clientele with diverse issues, from the stress of work and home to the stress of positive life changes. Often, learning to understand each other's operating systems -- you're a Mac and they're a PC -- helps improve situations immensely! So, whether you are seeking short-term, solution-focussed counseling or a deeper focus on issues of long-term, please feel free to call or email me to chat to see if we are a fit. If not, perhaps I can recommend another therapist better suited to your needs.

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.
