Hi, I’m Becky Bernard Stuempfig and I’m a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist with a private practice in Encinitas, CA. I help individuals, couples and families work through life transitions.
Every client is unique and I will customize our sessions together based on what will be most helpful and comfortable for you. I incorporate Mindfulness, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, and Solution Focused Therapy into our time together. I also offer outdoor walking sessions around beautiful Encinitas which many find to be a refreshing change of pace from the traditional office environment!
After receiving my Masters degree from the University of San Diego’s Marital and Family Therapy program I gained valuable training in many diverse settings including University of California at San Diego (UCSD) Family Medicine, Hospice of the North Coast, and the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs Marine Base at Camp Pendleton. Through these experiences I have developed specialties in grief and loss as well as supporting new moms and dads on their journey into parenthood. With advanced training in postpartum health, I have a passion for supporting women and couples before, during and after pregnancy. I also enjoy working with young adults who are seeking support while they navigate life changes within their careers, living environments, and relationships.
To complement my professional training, I gain real life experience daily trying to keep up with my two very active sons and husband, while juggling family and career goals. I love practicing yoga, mindfulness and spending time outdoors with family and friends.
I remind myself daily that we are all “works in progress” and am humbled by the hard work my clients do in their own lives. I look forward to hearing from you and learning about how I can support you!
