Mary Spease, PsyD, Psychologist in San Diego
I believe therapy can be a challenging and illuminating journey in which you have the chance to learn more about yourself, your approach/perspective on life, and the dynamics in important relationships. Throughout the therapy process, I view my clients through a lens of strength where common life dilemmas are seen as an opportunity to develop a stronger capacity for personal understanding and nurture deeper, more intimate relationships. Whether you are seeking support in response to relationship concerns, life transitions, addiction/recovery, or are the loved one of an addict, therapy can help identify & clarify underlying feelings & patterns of behavior.
It can also serve as a wonderful resource for anyone seeking to strengthen their ability to work through situational concerns or long-standing issues. As a result, therapy can help you feel enlightened and empowered while enhancing your sense of self, enriching relationships, and creating more fulfilling ways of life.
I aim to create a safe & supportive atmosphere where you will feel free to share what's on your mind & in your heart. I consider myself an active & engaged therapist who with warmth & directed insight, will utilize your history & in room observations to help guide you to your desired change.
