Meet Your Couples Counselor in San Diego – Jennifer Chappell Marsh, Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist #53559
I believe that vulnerability is a courageous act. I believe you can learn emotional intelligence. I believe that striving for whole-hearted living is a worthwhile, brave journey that you don’t have to walk alone.
As a Couples Counselor in San Diego, I work with individuals and couples to improve the quality of their lives and build stronger relationships. Couples counseling and individual therapy improves your relationships by getting to the heart of the issue. Being an Individual and Couples Counselor San Diego allows me to help people and relationships get to the heart of the issue. I help people improve their emotional well being, enhance the quality of their interpersonal relationships and to empower them with the tools necessary for a happy, healthy life.
I provide an interactive, down-to-earth approach to help individuals and couples build life-long positive relationships. I am committed to using empirically based and proven research methods to help my clients reach their goals. In short, I use what has been proven to work.
As a San Diego Couples and Individual Counselor, the majority of my therapy practice centers around Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT). EFT is considered one of only two “empirically supported” methods for working to improve welling being and satisfaction in relationships for couples.Using EFT, we will identify triggers that create distance in your relationship. New ways of communicating and resolving conflict are created where issues truly get resolved.
My focus is on your primary needs – to feel close, secure and responded to – which are often the causes of most couple’s conflict. Along the way, you’ll become the expert, maintaining positive change.
