Sherry Helgoe, MA, LMFT, LPCC, Marriage & Family Therapist in Yorba Linda
My belief is that we all have the capacity to grow, make positive change, and heal no matter the challenges we are confronted with in life. If you feel stressed-out, overwhelmed, unhappy, unfulfilled, depressed, anxious, misunderstood, or isolated and feel stuck as to what direction to go on your own, I can help. Together, we can work to find solutions, which include learning how to honestly communicate what you want, increasing your personal awareness, choosing self-acceptance over self-doubt, and making deliberate choices to create a life that feels more in sync with who you know you are.
My specialties include working with adults and couples who are facing challenges that are no longer manageable at home. Specifically, women's issues, men's issues, marriage challenges, affairs, life transitions (like empty-nest), depression, stress, and anxiety. Positive psychology is integrated throughout the therapy process to enhance personal growth.
Since 1996, I have facilitated positive personal and relational growth with my clients seeking solutions for challenges. I am formally trained in Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction & Solution-Focused Theory. I am a Professor at Pepperdine University's Graduate School of Psychology. My therapy style is individualized, positive, straightforward, and compassionate.
