The end of a relationship, or problems staying happy in one, can leave you feeling insecure, confused, anxious, rejected, and angry.

You may be losing countless hours of sleep trying to determine what went wrong with your relationship and how you can save it. You may even know that you and your partner should not be together, but are not ready to let go. It’s okay. I get it.

Deciding whether to leave or stay in your relationship can be a tough choice, when you’ve been together a long time, and even more so if you have children.

It’s hard going this road alone. You don’t have to!

Friends can offer advice, but it’s colored by their experiences. Family may try to help, but often fall short. Therapy is different.

I provide a confidential, safe environment, with lots of supportive listening, and tools to help you get through these challenges and heal.

Some of the time-tested techniques I use are:

* Supportive therapy (by carefully listening to your history and experiences)

* Cognitive therapy (by challenging a few faulty beliefs you may have; recognizing your blind spots;  helping you to keep stressors in perspective; learning how to find a middle ground, instead of using black and white thinking)

* Systems therapy (by exploring your family of origin’s dynamics and seeing if they are keeping you stuck; recognizing if you are repeating old patterns that helped you when you were growing up, but aren’t useful today)

Major life changes, relationship crises, and breakups are hard, especially if you “brought your all” to yours. You may feel ashamed or like a failure.  You may have made vows or promises to your spouse or partner of being together forever or “till death do us part”.

In a supportive, non-judgmental setting, we will work together to find a solution that is within your faith and belief system, while helping you heal and feel better about yourself and confident with your decision.

My office is in Brea and is close to its surrounding communities of La Habra, Whittier, Anaheim Hills, Fullerton, Yorba Linda, Placentia, Chino Hills and Orange County. I have been a therapist for 19 years, (and have been licensed and in private practice for 11 of them).

You can call or text me at 909-260-2736 or email me. I return calls, texts and emails ASAP, and am happy to answer any questions you may have, or set an appointment and get started.

I look forward to hearing from you.  Why wait another day? Don’t forget to ask for your free 10 minute phone consultation!
