Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
Twenty-five years of psychotherapeutic practice in the private and public sectors converge with prior professional teaching experience and a decade of foreign residence while working in the fields of education, social research and international relations, to offer clients access to culturally-informed, theoretically-grounded, contextually integrated psychotherapy and consultation services in English, Spanish and Portuguese.

A compassionate nature and comprehensive expertise in the diagnosis and treatment of relationship friction, responses to traumatic events, bereavement, existential crises, transcultural adjustment stress, adolescent quandaries, depression, anxiety and critical incident intervention, provide clients with alternative modalities including talk therapy, art therapy, dream work, relaxation techniques, EMDR, diagnostic testing and psychiatric referrals.

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.
