I have over fifteen years of experience working with the following: self-defeating behavior, unhealthy relationship patterns, addiction, difficulty with setting boundaries, body image issues, trauma and grief.
Do you feel like past wounds are preventing you from moving forward? Perhaps you have a difficult time understanding why you continue to repeat unhealthy behaviors or feel ashamed for not living up to your own or others' expectations. You probably feel a mixture of emotions: motivated to change, but afraid of feeling uncomfortable and vulnerable. Maybe you doubt your ability to change or question if talking about painful issues can actually help you feel better. Having these thoughts and feelings is a normal part of the growth process.

I am versed in legal issues related to co-parenting, divorce and/or mandated counseling. I welcome high-conflict family relationship issues (for example, infidelity, addictions, extended family conflict, mental health challenges, etc.

Listen, here’s the thing. If you’ve come this far, you’ve most likely read a lot of therapist profiles, and may read a lot more. Any therapist is probably going to tell you that they are equipped with what it takes to help you, and for the most part, that’s probably true. But just like any relationship , the therapist/client relationship has to be two things: A good fit, And not an easy fix. The truth is, mental and emotional health and well-being isn’t like a fad diet. You can’t keto your way to stability. Being healthy is a lifestyle, a commitment to working at something that can sometimes seem daunting.

Toady's busy lifestyles confront us with many personal/professional challenges. Assuming multiple roles can impact our ability to meet the responsibilities of our daily lives. Financial stress, work/school responsibilities, relationship struggles and parenting problems can cause depression, anxiety, health concerns, anger, or alienation. Without an adequate support system, life stresses often seem insurmountable; the high cost of health care often discourages individuals from seeking outside help. I recogize the increasing need for affordable, competent, compassionate mental health care services. I believe in the healing process of psychotherapy, and offer flexible fees for those commited to doing the work.

Within the context of a consistent, supportive relationship , I strive to provide a safe atmosphere conducive to this kind of depth work.
I work with individuals, couples, and families who want to address long-term problems and patterns. It is through this kind of personal exploration that a deeper understanding can be attained and the sense-of-self can be strengthened. A psychodynamic approach can go below the surface to address problems, improve personal relationships, and stop self-destructive behavior. So often, past experiences can interfere with our present lives and we find ourselves suffering through repeated ongoing pain.

I specialize in working with couples, families and many clients suffering from trauma, relationship issues , phobias, anxiety disorder and depression.
Am I the right therapist for you? Helping client's is the primary goal of every therapist. What can you do for me that the others can't? That is a valid question. Many healthcare providers provide symptom management rather than treating the main problem. I mainly use Solution Focused Therapy to focus on client's present and future and to find solutions for their problems. The therapy is not about me; its about you. However, in addition to my years of education, I bring a life-time of personal life experience and an extensive personal knowledge to the sessions.

My clients often seek therapy for relationship stress, identity exploration (gender, sexuality, relationships), life transitions, and experiences of depression, anxiety, and trauma.
Sometimes we can feel stuck by the stressors in our relationships, careers, personal histories, and more. You do not have to navigate it alone. As a team, we will work together to challenge the obstacles in your path and deepen your relationship with yourself and others. I believe that through the power of language, collaboration, and connection, we can create an inclusive space for you to explore all aspects of your life. As a strengths-based therapist, I invest in getting to know the person behind the “problem” and empower you to live your life more authentically.

Relationship Issues Therapists
While need for human connection appears to be innate, the ability to form healthy, loving relationships is learned. Some evidence suggests that the ability to form a stable relationship starts to form in infancy, in a child's earliest experiences with a caregiver who reliably meets the infant's needs for food, care, warmth, protection, stimulation, and social contact. Such relationships are not destiny, but they are theorized to establish deeply ingrained patterns of relating to others. The end of a relationship, however, is often a source of great psychological anguish.

If you're looking for a Mission Viejo relationship therapist, these professionals provide relationship therapy and counseling in Mission Viejo.
