Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
Hello, Thank you for taking a moment to consider who you might choose to trust with your current struggles. And let me say this first: I'm sorry you are having struggles. I probably understand and offer compassion for whatever is going on. Life can be difficult and even though we try to create a life that is trouble free, we will often realize that trouble has found its way into our lives anyway. This can create additional struggles like anxiety and stress, fear and depression, frustration and anger. Great!! Right?? Well, I would enjoy assisting you to take back your right to a struggle free life. Having said that, I would like to share a little of what you can expect from counseling with me. This is a professional private practice, not a drop in clinic. You will see me each session and while I am professional, I am also down to earth. I like to get right to work in assisting you find solutions, strategies, and healing. I am quite interactive, meaning: I don't just sit there and listen. Your emotional safety and security is very important to me, and while I will not help you avoid the issues, I will tread with compassion through your story as we find your path to greater peace. I believe you deserve a therapist that will address what needs to be addressed and ask what needs to be asked. Even though a lot of work usually happens in the first session, I see that first session as a two way interview (sorta) in which you are deciding if you think I can be of assistance to you, and I likewise make that determination/evaluation. I can offer referrals if I am not the therapist for you. If I am the therapist for you, we will set our next appointment and go from there. An important question is always the cost, the billing of insurance, etc., and you should absolutely ask, I will likewise address this when you call for an appointment. I look forward to meeting with you and assisting you to set and reach your goals. Kindly, Patsy

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.
