Individuals enter psychotherapy for a wide variety of reasons: for problems in living (such as work stress or family problems); for relief from particular disorders (such as depression, anxiety or alcoholism); for coaching (career track, corporate change or problem employees).
No one is fully described by one problem or disorder, but the initial problem is often the catalyst for improving one’s life. Life transitions are a common theme in psychotherapy. Individuals go through the changes of marriage and divorce, new jobs and careers and changes in life priorities.
Dr. Evans views psychotherapy as a collaborative process in which you work together to clarify your goals and the means to achieve them. His training includes psychodynamic theory, cognitive-behavioral approaches, systems theory, Gestalt therapy and Positive Psychology. Regardless of the theoretical orientation, most people want straight talk from a psychotherapist, not psychobabble. They want a competent psychologist who gives real feedback about what he sees going on.
In his practice Dr. Evans has worked with adults of all ages in Carmel Valley, as well as children and adolescents. With his generalist approach, he starts with your specific problem and views it within the context of your total life, including your strengths.
The La Jolla office is located at 3252 Holiday Court, Suite 205 La Jolla, CA, for patients looking for a Carmel Valley psychologist area of San Diego.
