Relationship Counseling - Laguna Hills & South Orange County
Most of the time, our lives revolve around the important relationships in our lives. That may mean our spouse, but it could also mean our relationship with our brothers and sisters, our parents, our kids, our friends, and our colleagues at work. All of these relationships present their own unique challenges and rewards. If your focus is on the difficulties you're having in one or more of these relationships, then please feel free to contact me, and we can talk more about it.
Sometimes what a client would really like is couples counseling, but their spouse or parter is not interested. That situation is far from hopeless. You can come to counseling on your own, and still make the focus of treatment be imporving your partner relationship. When you gain new insights and learn new skills, you will become much more effective in dealing with your partner. And the improvments you make to yourself will also benefit your partner and the relationship. When you get healthier, smarter, and more skillful, it creates a positive feedback loop in the relationship. Your partner will have to deal with the healthier version of you, and that new kind of interaction can actually pull them into a healthier way of relating.
If you have any questions about how relationship counseling can improve the quality of your life, please contact me.

14 Telltale Signs You Have Crossed Into an Emotional Affair

From GoodTherapy.org: "Are you really just friends? Have you crossed the line? If you are asking yourself these questions, you may be engaged in an emotional affair. Affairs that are not physical or sexual in nature may seem harmless at first, but they can have a devastating impact on relationships and can often lead to adultery. An emotional affair may never turn into a sexual affair, but emotional infidelity may still turn people who are married or in committed relationships into cheaters."
