Curtis Eklund, MFT Intern x121

Marriage & Family Therapist Registered Intern #77432

Hello, my name is Curtis Eklund and I am passionate about bringing healing to marriages, families, and individuals who are mired in depression, anxiety or addictions. I hope to help clients relieve the shame cycles or communication problems that keep them stuck and open new avenues of personal growth. I do not believe that any situation is hopeless. I also work with individuals and couples recovering from the damage of pornography or sexual addiction in their lives.

I seek to serve people of faith to increase their ability to integrate their relationships with God with their practical, daily lives. I echo what A. W. Tozer wrote when he said, “What comes into our minds when we think about God is the most important thing about us.”

Counseling
Using a family systems approach I help clients become more of who God intended them to be. More than anything, I wish to convey to my clients a sense of personal worth and uniqueness, based upon Biblical truth.

Education
I received my MA in Marriage and Family Therapy from Bethel Seminary San Diego in June of 2013. Integrating theological and clinical matters into coursework provided a depth of study that is necessary for today’s world. My practicum site was the San Diego Rescue Mission, where I taught classes and saw individuals, families, and couples as therapy clients. I am a PREPARE-ENRICH certified pre-marital counselor and also an intern member of the California Association of Marriage and Family Therapy. I am a Certified Sexual Addiction Therapist Candidate (CSAT).

Personal Endeavors
I enjoy many of the finest outdoor activities that our beautiful San Diego has to offer, including surfing, skateboarding, hiking, and a multitude of sports. In addition, I also play guitar in a worship band for a small group at my church.

Speaking Topics
I especially enjoy speaking to young adult groups.
Healthy Sexuality Game Plan for Christian Men
How My View of God Affects My View of Others
