About Jopeth Petersen, AMFT

Every day in every way I am getting better. 

I am a Filipino-American raised in San Diego County and part of the LGBT community.  I believe in creating a safe space for my clients to be able to feel comfortable to share themselves with me.  I believe in the holistic approach to therapy that focuses on the whole person and their support system.  I also utilize CBT, DBT, solution-focused, and strength-based to help the client achieve their goals and reach their full potential. 

As an Associate Marriage & Family Therapist, I have over 7 years of experience working with children and their families specializing in autism spectrum disorder to manage big feelings, behavioral issues, and effective communication.  I have worked with adolescents and teens struggling with depression, anxiety, self-harm, anger, self-esteem, substance use, and suicidal ideation.
