Therapist in Encinitas, California Rhonda Duncan Higgs, MFT

Rhonda Duncan Higgs, MFT

After 13 years of active duty in the US Navy, Rhonda sought to compliment her school of hard knocks with a formal education. In 2006, she received a Master of Arts (emphasis in Marriage & Family Therapy) from Chapman University. Rhonda specializes in co-parenting and military culture. As a former service member, co-parent and former dependent of a Navy SEAL, Rhonda has a breadth of experience and knowledge that has proven invaluable. Additionally, she has had experience as a Kids Turn San Diego facilitator, coordinator and consultant from 2007 to 2012. Rhonda utilizes a wide range of theoretical approaches (based on the client’s needs and goals). However, she considers Cognitive Behavioral Therapy the foundation of her therapeutic approach. She has successfully treated patients that suffer from ADD/ADHD, adjustment issues, anxiety disorders, mood disorders, life transitions, parenting issues, PTSD, relationship issues, low self esteem, emotional trauma and women’s issues. Rhonda has also successfully treated at-risk teens, patients involved in high-conflict divorce and individuals recovering from emotionally abusive relationships. In addition to her broad range of life experiences, formal education, and clinical experience, Rhonda states, “I have yet to treat a client that I could not relate to or genuinely empathize with.” Beyond clinical techniques, Rhonda utilizes her sense of humor, intuition, and genuine rapport to help each patient attain their goals and reach their maximum potential.
