Are you feeling overwhelmed because you have been ignoring your needs and focusing on the needs of others? Eventually, you might even start having a series of physical, emotional, or relationship problems. And when you try to escape these difficulties, you notice that the challenges escalate.

Are you feeling overwhelmed because you have been ignoring your needs and focusing on the needs of others? Eventually, you might even start having a series of physical, emotional, or relationship problems. And when you try to escape these difficulties, you notice that the challenges escalate. What is interesting is that most of us are not even aware that it is our own mind that is making it harder for us to enjoy the things we have worked so hard to achieve and miss out on the opportunities right in front of us.
By working together, I can teach you how to become a more vibrant you. I will help you prioritize your values, and guide you in taking action towards your goals. I have a strength-based approach and will provide you with individualized care that is respectful and empowering.
Please feel free to email me at nasimbavar@gmail.com to set up a meeting. I believe that while we cannot change the events of our past, we can certainly choose to live a more meaningful present. I look forward to working with you.

It's a good idea to find out a counselor's philosophy. It is going to have a big formative impact on you, perhaps more than anything else about them. My philosophy is teleogical - that we are all going and becoming someone, somewhere. What I believe identity + relationship = the good life. So being a person is about having relationship and having relationship is about being someone, really... Read More

It's a good idea to find out a counselor's philosophy. It is going to have a big formative impact on you, perhaps more than anything else about them. My philosophy is teleogical - that we are all going and becoming someone, somewhere. What I believe identity + relationship = the good life. So being a person is about having relationship and having relationship is about being someone, really being someone. The student becomes a graduate. The job applicant becomes an employee and then a boss. The hurt person becomes fearful and bitter and lonely, and then lonelier. The person who loves becomes a lover. We are always becoming more of the person we are on a track to be.

Stop for a minute and ask yourself: who am I? That's my first question for you. Now here's the second: what kind of a person are you in the process of becoming? The core of my work is referenced in these two questions. The way I think, everything else falls in line behind your identity. 

The best way to do the work of becoming more of a person is in relationship. The simplest definition of relationship is the giving and receiving of love. Relationship opens up the door for us to heal and grow. Each one of us has a past which has marked us, a present that embodies us and a future which will find us. The healing of these three comes from being loved in relationship. A good phrase that gets at this is ‘being loved into loving.’ That's part of my job description. I can assure you I will end up caring about you whether you like it or not.

Healing from your past, knowing the freedom of forgiveness, gaining the courage necessary to leave behind a dark place, becoming able to give and receive love, are the personal stepping stones in relationship which will transform you into a better and better person. In good relationship you don't kind of change, you do change. Guaranteed, because good relationship breathes new identity into us, every time. That's what relationship is - the nature of life in us. My work is successful when you become more of the person you are supposed to be: a (real and true) person in (life-giving) relationship.

At times, life feels overwhelming and anxiety seems to take over our bodies and minds. These stressful times can feel isolating, but please know that you're not alone.

At times, life feels overwhelming and anxiety seems to take over our bodies and minds. These stressful times can feel isolating, but please know that you're not alone. Whether you, or your teen, experiences panic attacks, generalized anxiety, social anxiety, difficulty adjusting to a new situation, or a similar life circumstance, there is relief out there.

It can be difficult to reach out for help, but I have worked with many people who are suffering from the stress, anxiety, or depressive feelings that come up when the weight of life is coming down on your shoulders. I help my clients- whether teens, young adults, or young professionals- to understand themselves better and learn and practice coping skills to reduce or eliminate the troubling symptoms, and help them heal from the hurt they may have experienced in the past. I utilize a variety of techniques including helping you to understand your thoughts and behavior better (Cognitive Behavioral Therapy) and making adjustments to help change your perceptions and experiences of life. I teach my clients how to be more Mindful by being in the moment and letting things go more easily, and I encourage them to have more compassion for themselves. Sometimes you just need someone to listen to you and be there to support you. I would be honored to be able to be there for you.

I work best with teens, young adults, and families who are ready to take a look at what is not working for them, and be open to making some changes so that they can achieve more inner-peace, happiness, successful relationships, and quality of life.

I offer a direct, honest, warm, and compassionate approach to therapy. We will work together to explore your strengths and develop goals so that you can reach the level of functioning and life satisfaction that you desire.
Please feel free to reach out for a free phone consultation to see if I may be a good fit for you. I offer individual, group, and family therapy to meet your needs. I look forward to chatting with you soon!

Within a warm and collaborative relationship, my clients experience profound growth by better understanding themselves and then making the choices they desire which result in the positive and long-lasting changes they are seeking. The process of therapy includes alleviation of emotional and psychological pain, learning new ways to respond to life’s challenges, gaining self-confidence, identifying strengths and building on them and, finally, improving current relationships and developing new ones that support the new lives we are creating.

I have spent over 23 years providing not just direct services to clients but also training and supervising other clinicians including residents in the Psychiatry Residency Training Program at UCSD School of Medicine

Hello and Welcome, my name is Bryson. Please take a moment to read a little about me and the work I feel so passionate about. I look forward to hearing from you.

Interpersonal relationships are powerful contributors to our overall health. Our intimate partner relationships, family relationships, work or peer relationships affect us in meaningful ways. When our relational lives are strong and connected we feel satisfied, empowered, hopeful, and more confident. When our relational lives are hurting, we feel anxious, sad, pained, frustrated, and left not knowing what to do to improve it. I work with my clients to address the heart of their stressors working toward tangible results with lasting effects. I work collaboratively & passionately to create a safe, responsive, and supportive environment to address your needs.

My practice centers around Emotionally Focused Therapy and Attachment informed therapies to help individuals, couples, and families address the core communication patterns that leave them feeling stuck and disconnected. In addition, I conduct research with Military Couples and help our Service men & women manage unique stressors in their lives.

My passion and expertise in couple, family, and individual therapy can help you grow, heal, and feel more connected in your relationships. Together we will address the core of your concerns, working with a sense of compassion and understanding. I welcome an opportunity to meet with you.
