Family Counselor

Scott Wood, M.A.

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

2333 Camino del Rio S., Ste 250, San Diego, CA

Each stage of a family's life cycle presents new and unique challenges. Interaction patterns that were functional in earlier stages may no longer be effective. Coping with challenges and negotiating new boundaries and ways of relating can be difficult and problems can appear overwhelming. I assist families in developing manageable solutions, maintaining connections, and re-establishing an environment of mutual love and support. Don’t live with the pain and fear of family conflict any longer. Contact me so we can get your family the support you need.

Family Counselor

Dr. Nikki Watkins, LMFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

4080 Centre Street, Suite 202, San Diego, CA 92103

Whether close or distant, existent or not, our families have a big impact on our development and behavior. It is within (or the lack of) this group that we learn about ourselves, how we relate to others, how others relate to us, and where we either receive or do not receive necessary love and affection. Family therapy, whether we are discussing current dynamics or past situations, is a powerful space to begin healing as often it is those closest to us that can hurt us the most. I have been married for 20 years and have 4 kids as a part of a blended family so I understand different family dynamics very well, both personally and as an experienced therapist.

Family therapy is a wonderful modality to assist families in improving communication, interaction, respect, support or addressing a concern that is impacting the family unit. Family therapy can increase understanding and assist family members in functioning at their optimal level and achieving their individual and family goals. Family therapy can help members and families attain healing needed to process difficult situations and trauma by improving communication, structure and boundaries.

Family Counselor

Fredric Seldin, Ph.D.

Clinical Psychologist

7840 Mission Center Court, Suite 102, San Diego, CA 92108

Family therapy is usually the treatment of choice when there are parent/child conflicts. Such conflicts can come about due to many different causes: a highly conflictual divorce that involves children; a newly constituted blended family; adolescent behavior problems; failure to launch issues; inter-generational issues; and many others. My approach in all of these matters is to work to bring the conflicting parties together based on mutual empathy, forgiveness, and effective problem solving. I have helped many hundreds of families over the course of my career and have learned that each family situation is unique and must be approached on this basis.

Family Counselor

Joanne Wendt, Ph.D.

Clinical Psychologist

Within Driving Distance of San Diego, CA

No one exits in a vacuum and if one family member is suffering, it's very likely that other members are affected in some way. Because the symptomatic individual may be serving some organizing function in the family, the family's dynamics may be responsible for keeping the pain alive in order to maintain a sense of stability no matter how uncomfortable it may be. Dr. Wendt is able to assess a family's underlying structure looking for patterns of dysfunctional interactions that may be causing symptoms in a member. Treating the family as a whole unit in therapy has been shown, at times, to be a more efficient and faster agent of change than individual therapy alone.

Family Counselor

Kevin Fleming Ph.D.

Coach/Change Agent/Consultant

San Diego, CA 92101

Most family therapists inadvertently create more chaos through their well-intentioned efforts to assist a family move through a change process. Why? Brains are inherently deregulated (all of us, may I add) and most talking and dialoguing misses brain-centric problems that need more intensive help. Many times the emotional trauma created by years of solving problems ineffectively can wreak havoc on the brain's parasympathetic nervous system, not ever giving the family a break from flight or fight thinking.

Family Counselor

Roxanne Strauss, M.A., LMFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

4025 Camino del Rio South, Suite 300, San Diego, CA 92108

When I work with families, together we look for patterns and cycles that the family seems to be repeating but are creating problems for the family. When there is stress in the family, emotions tend to be very strong, so it can be difficult to think through each person's part in the family that may be keeping the system from changing. In family therapy we work at lowering the anxiety so that we can collaborate together for positive solutions.
