Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
Hello! My name is Peggy Knodel. I have been practicing as a Marriage and Family Therapist since 1990. I received my undergraduate degree in Psychobiology from U.C.L.A. and my Master's degree in Marriage and Family Therapy from United States International University (now Alliant University). I enjoy working with individuals, couples, and adolescents. My aim is to assist clients with improving their relationships and achieving a higher quality of life. My approach is based on family systems theory which takes into account the social context of one's life including family constellation and the larger social milieu. I also use cognitive-behavioral interventions to examine one's thought processes and behavior patterns to identify where improvements might be needed. I offer a Christian-based therapeutic environment for clients who have this preference. I have been a faculty member at University of Phoenix since 2009. This is also a very fulfilling endeavor as I believe that, as an instructor, I can contribute to the ongoing positive development of students in our profession. I have been married since 1992. I enjoy cooking, gardening, learning, and laughing!

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.
