Armin Geiger, MA, MS, LMFT, LPCC
I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (California MFC License #48558) and Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor (California LPCC License #364) in San Diego, CA. Born and raised in Switzerland, I lived in the U.K. for a while before moving to San Diego on my own in 1992. I am both German and Swiss and bilingual in English andGerman. The challenges and changes I faced have given me unique perspectives, insights, and experiences. Some of them are managing change, facing adverse situations, jump-starting and maintaining motivation, achieving emotional well-being, facing life transitions, and navigating layered cultural issues.
In my capacity as a Counselor and Therapist, I am a seasoned clinician, clinical supervisor, and consultant & trainer. I have experience working with schools and community agencies, alcohol & drug treatment facilities, and residential treatment centers. I have worked with civilian and military individuals, couples, and families. My approach to therapy is based in a client centered, trauma informed, and culturally sensitive framework that draws from a variety of theoretical orientations. My treatment is individually tailored to each client. I may draw from Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Solution Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT), Gestalt, or Humanistic modes to meet your needs and achieve your goals. I am trained in Motivational Interviewing, Seeking Safety Treatment, Substance Abuse and Co-Occurring Conditions, as well as LGBTQ related issues.
