Therapist Rancho Santa Margarita

One of the newer cities in Orange County, Rancho Santa Margarita is a quiet and beautiful area nestled in rolling foothills. Dove Canyon and Robinson Ranch are two major housing communities here, home to many families, couples, and children. Rancho Santa Margarita has been featured in television, including on the Real Housewives of Orange County. The city is also the location of the fictional housing development Sudden Valley, from the television show Arrested Development. Many celebrities call the area home, including a number of athletes, such as Mark Sanchez and Carson Palmer, both of which play quarterback in the NFL.1

Marriage and Couples Mental Health in Rancho Santa Margarita

Most couples and families in Rancho Santa Margarita earn excellent incomes, own their homes, and are well-educated. Residents by and large have health insurance, which allows them to seek medical and mental health care when it is needed. However, approximately six percent of the city's residents are at or below the poverty level. Not only does such financial insecurity cause stress in a couple's relationship, it also reduces their ability to seek health care services when they are needed.2

Bullying is an unfortunate occurrence in schools throughout the country. Schools in Rancho Santa Margarita are no exception. Only 25 percent of students feel like teachers and other school personnel intervene in every instance of bullying. To help reduce harassment, intimidation and bullying in school, many resources for students and parents in Orange County are available from the Orange County Department of Education. Information about intervention and prevention strategies, as well as contact information for law enforcement intervention are available. Tips for internet safety and how to avoid cyberbullying are also offered. For more information about these services, call 888-600-4357.3
