What Sets Us Apart

~ At Grow Through Life Counseling, as a new patient you will speak with a clinician for a brief phone consultation prior to your first appointment. This will be an opportunity for us to make sure we are the right clinician for you and for you to get all of your questions answered prior to scheduling your first appointment. 

~Unlike larger clinics, you will have a phone extension for voicemail and email address to reach your therapist directly. 

~We do not treat a high volume of patients so we can provide the highest quality of care to you and your family. 

~We never nickel/dime for administrative tasks and provide school absence notes for free - just let us know you need one.

~When you come to treatment at Grow Through Life Counseling, you will be meeting in a warm, family friendly space in which all ages of children are welcome. Our rooms are big enough to have all family members join and we welcome extended family as well. 

~We hear other therapists don't call people back. We will call you back every time within 24 hours or the next business day. If we don't pick up, it is likely we are in session and make every effort to return your call in a timely way. At times, we are in session until 8pm so we will wait until the next day so as to not call you too late in the evening. 

~We provide superbills at your request for no additional fees.

~We give all patients a portal link to request future appointments up to 3 month in advance to accommodate your busy family schedule.  and once you are a patient you will be able to log in at your convenience and request future appointments.

~We offer four locations: Eastlake in Chula Vista, Del Mar/Carmel Valley, Scripps Ranch and Oceanside

~We recognize the most important part of your care is the relationship you have with your provider and welcome feedback at any time.
