Mark Raskin

Becoming a Relationship Therapist

When I was 14 my stepmother passed away from cancer after a two-year battle.

A couple months after that my dad took me and my family to counseling.

I remember in the second or third session, looking at the therapist and thinking, "I could do this… I like what she does, I could do that.”

Counseling Philosophy

I think change comes in a couple different ways: sometimes it is "a-ha" moments, but I've also noticed those don’t always stick.

Most importantly, change comes with time and practice; a change in perspective of your situation. Sometimes that is all you can do: you can't change anything else but you can change how you look at it and cope with it.

Professional Counseling Background

I started my helping profession with a background in Psychology and a teaching credential. I received my multiple subject credential and taught English in grade school, up thru 9th grade.

I taught for 12 years and then decided that I missed helping on a more intimate level.

I returned to school to complete my master’s degree in Marriage and Family Therapy and worked throughout San Diego. I worked in a behavioral support agency, in residential mental health settings, and crisis centers.

My background and experience has allowed me to gain skills that help me understand the various situations that have contributed to my client's coming to see me.
