Irma Espiritu is a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist. She has several years of experience providing therapy to families, adults and children. Irma Espiritu’s main training is in Family Systems (Bowen) Cognitive-Behaviorism; however, she is an eclectic therapist who also uses other theoretical modalities to fit a client’s course of treatment and needs. She has worked in substance abuse programs as a therapist and clinical supervisor. Her work experience is extensive from working with children with attachment issues to adults who struggle with co-occurring disorders. She has a wide range of experience with diverse populations and is both bilingual and bi-cultural. Currently, she is providing therapy to our military families here in San Diego. She is also a graduate from a Christian College where she received education in biblical counseling; however, she is a therapist who has been successful in applying her spiritual counseling experience to several different walks of faith. Irma Espiritu feels that her down to earth personality and warmth are her strongest assets as a therapist. She believes that therapy is a journey that each person embarks on, and as a therapist she is privileged to guide and support her clients as they continue to grow and learn about themselves through an environment that is nurturing and supportive.
