Meet Dr. Shaun-Adrián Chofla, M.A, Ed.D.
With a doctorate in education and a master’s degree in Child and Lifespan Development, Dr. Shaun-Adrián Choflá brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to his role as a counselor at Empathy Therapy. Dr. Choflá is a tenured college professor teaching human development and education coursework. All of his work, whether counseling, teaching, writing, or public speaking, has been driven by a desire to support the health and well-being of children, youth, adults, and families.
Motivated by some of the personal challenges he faced early in life, Dr. Choflá began studying mental health and human development in order to better understand himself. With advice and support from others, Dr. Choflá found his voice and successfully navigated through his personal struggles. As a result, he developed a passion for helping others overcome their own challenges, using some of the techniques and strategies he had acquired from his education and life experiences.
Dr. Choflá has an extensive background serving people of all ages, including children, youth, college students, working professionals, and older adults. In addition to his past role as an autism, behavior, and learning interventionist, Dr. Choflá has also helped children, youth, and families navigate conflicts through various training and counseling sessions, from group to one-on-one sessions.
Currently, a California-based Marriage and Family Therapist (MFT) trainee, Dr. Choflá’s forthcoming completion of an MFT degree will complement his extensive educational achievements and deepen his capacity to provide guidance and support for each patient on their mental health journey.
