“Being in therapy is great. I spend an hour just talking about myself. It’s kinda like being the guy on a date.” Caroline Rea- Actress

San Diego affordable therapy is great and we are great at it! Matthew Bruhin & Associates has been a San Diego affordable therapy leader for close to a decade. Dr. Bruhin started off as an individual practitioner and has grown his practice with a youthful, fun loving, and humorous style. He and his staff are made up of forward thinking, multi-disciplinary therapists, counselors, and addiction specialists.  We are good at what we do because of three reasons. First, we are all well trained and know what we do well. Second, we are directive and problem solving therapists, not the kind that stare off into space and occasionally ask you “so how does that make you feel.” Third, and most important, we care more about you the person, than we do about anything else. We work to get you results in a time efficient and cost effective manner. We get it, therapy isn’t cheap and it isn’t easy. We want to help you get real, lasting results, and help you enjoy your life doing it. Our office is a haven and we want you here so we can help you invent new perspectives!

Therapy is really an ancient art form that has been blended with modern, evidence based techniques that helps people in many ways. Psychotherapy or “talk-therapy” tends to focus on problem solving and is goal-oriented. That means at the onset of treatment, you decide upon which specific changes you would like to make in your life. These goals will often be broken down into smaller attainable objectives and put into a formal treatment plan. Our therapists work on and focus on helping you to achieve these goals. This is done simply through talking and discussing techniques that the therapist can suggest that may help you better navigate those difficult areas within your life. Often our counseling will help educate you about disorders or specific common problems and we will suggest coping mechanisms, strategies and techniques that will make your life more effective.

Our therapists utilize many different proven and researched techniques, to help people with their problems. Different types of problems are helped with different types of models or techniques. Most therapists have a special style they use, but most are eclectic, meaning we utilize several methods. We also utilize humor, relaxation, and common sense in all of our sessions. Some techniques we use in our office are:

  • Cognitive Behavioral Therapy – Great for anxiety, depression, and addiction
  • Family Systems Therapy – Useful for working with family disorders, divorce, enmeshment
  • Emotionally Focused Therapy – Helpful in dealing with marital issues and relationships
  • Dialectical Behavior Therapy – Provides support for those dealing with personality disorders, eating disorders, and addiction
  • Motivational Interviewing Therapy – Useful for all addictions and substance abuse
  • Solution Oriented Therapy – Helpful in short term fixes to specific life problems

Matthew Bruhin & Associated utilizes these models and more in our quest to help you with your specific issue, diagnosis, or problem. Along with our training, our experience and motivation, all we need is you. If you are willing and motivated change, nothing stands in the way of success.
