In-Home Therapy for Today’s Busy Lifestyle
Serving all of San Diego County
I meet with clients in the comfort and privacy of their own homes (office hours are also available upon request). My twenty years of experience has shown that this distinctive approach not only provides my clients with the convenience and confidentiality they desire, but also allows them to feel more at ease in their own environment when discussing their feelings and concerns. I utilize several short-term therapy models which include: Solution-Focused, Cognitive-Behavioral, Family Systems and EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing). By primarily focusing on the present, I help individuals, couples and families gain the necessary insights and skills to make measurable and meaningful progress without the need for extended treatment.
Benefits of In-Home Therapy
- Confidential - Ideal for the working professional and First Responder (Police Officer, Fire Fighter, Military Personnel) who prefer the privacy of their own home versus being seen in a therapist's waiting room.
- Convenient - Day, evening and weekend appointments available to accommodate the busy lifestyle of working professionals and their families. No need to worry about transportation or childcare issues. Ideal for couples with a partner who may be resistant to "going to therapy" but open to a therapist coming to them.
- Affordable - No extra charges involved for the convenience of having the therapy in your home. Fees are comparable with other equally qualified Marriage and Family Therapists.
- Effective - Services are based on several highly effective forms of therapy designed to produce measurable results within a few sessions. Also, because clients feel more at ease in the privacy of their own homes, they tend to accomplish their goals in a shorter period of time.

AREAS OF EXPERTISE
Coping with Life Issues
Ed Thompson is a life-changer. I consider my experience with Ed and EMDR to be the breakthrough I was searching for all my life. After a decade of talk therapy to learn to deal with my difficult upbringing, six sessions with Ed and EMDR brought about complete freedom from emotional trauma. I’m not talking about a little improvement, I’m talking about life-altering, profound, monumental change that has seeped into every area of my life. My marriage is better, my parenting is better, the way I deal with stress is better, my outlook on life in general is better, and Ed was the catalyst for my radical metamorphosis.
I find remarkable the speed at which EMDR brought about transformation. After my very first session in my home, I noticed immense positive changes and I found each subsequent session brought exponential development. The growth is permanent and freeing, allowing me to live the life I feel I was made to lead. Numerous friends and family have had identical experiences with Ed. It is with a full heart that I urge anyone to make a session with Ed Thompson. It will be the best decision of your life.
Biography and Philosophy
I am a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, having graduated with a Masters of Arts degree in Counseling from Rowan University in 1997. I began my counseling career twenty years ago with an agency that provided In-Home therapeutic services to children and families. This initial experience demonstrated the benefits of meeting with individuals, couples and families in their own environment, rather than in a therapist’s office. After relocating to California in 2001, I started my private practice using the In-Home model that I found so successful early in my career. My goal was simple: provide affordable, confidential In-Home counseling services at hours convenient for busy families and working professionals.
Over the course of my career, I have worked in various community clinics, psychiatric hospitals, schools and residential facilities in addition to working and collaborating with law enforcement agencies throughout San Diego County. Although my past work experiences have been invaluable to my growth as a therapist, the results I have achieved in my private practice continue to surpass the results I have experienced while working in the public sector.
