Barbara Cunningham, PsyD, MFT, Marriage & Family Therapist in San Diego
As a couples therapist, I believe that two strong "I's" make the strongest possible "We." I also believe that counseling can help you to thrive, not just survive! Adversity offers people the opportunity to become stronger, not in SPITE of the challenge, but BECAUSE of it. Actually, resilience in the face of hard times, means developing the ability to bounce FORWARD. And the good news is it can be taught! Whether you just discovered an affair, your partner abuses drugs,or you just need the arguments to end, I have the insight and teaching principles to help you obtain long-lasting change.
My clinical style is warm, empathic, and not without humor. I believe that the ability to laugh at ourselves, even in the face of trouble, can lighten the spirit. Research shows that positive therapy outcomes are the result of a good fit between therapist and client. So make a careful choice!
Clients often remark that they value my insight & life experience. I provide a safe, warm space for you to open up and begin the path toward healing. You deserve to be heard and gain new insights that can strengthen your partnership. If you want your relationship to thrive, not just survive, call today!
