Mental Health Counseling Services  

Mental attitudes and emotions are important elements of overall health. Our counseling department offers talk therapy support for patients dealing with depression, fatigue, work-related stress, relationship issues, life transitions, and health problems, especially chronic health problems.  

Dr. Jennifer Pfeuffer, PsyD, offers 45-minute sessions in-person or through telehealth in her private practice at the clinic. These services are also available to anyone in the state of CA and will be delivered via telehealth for those outside San Diego County. Contact us for more information at (858) 246-9730 and rates.
