Deborah Farnsworth, Psy.D.

Psychotherapist/Psychoanalyst

Within driving distance of Laguna Woods

I use an Object relations approach to psychotherapy which entails looking at how your relationships affect your functioning. As a certified psychoanalyst, I am always listening for issues connected to your past and yet I am always grounded in the present. Looking at the past is only helpful if it helps us live richer and fuller lives now. As we explore the important relationships in your life we may see that there are faulty perceptions interfering with your happiness. Old feelings from the past can hinder you personal progress. I focus on helping you to remove the obstacles that get in your way. Our relationship is important for your healing. Let's see if we are a good fit!

Psychotherapy can be a frightening word because “psycho” brings up images of Norman Bates and he is certainly someone none of us want to be associated with. The truth is that psychotherapy is just a fancy word for counseling. If “therapy” is used alone, people ask if it is physical therapy, occupational therapy, etc. A prefix was needed to distinguish it from other therapies and unfortunately “psycho” was chosen. Please don’t let the word stop you from seeking any necessary help you may be seeking. Needing help doesn’t mean you are crazy or that you are weak. We all need help at various stages of our lives and if you are in need now, please let me assist you. Call me at 714-751-0888.

Andrea Schoon, M.A., LMFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Within driving distance of Laguna Woods

Life is full of challenges and we get thrown curve balls which we are often not prepared for. We may come from homes which were unhealthy and now being in a relationship can be frustrating and confusing. Raising children is the hardest job of all. With all that we must deal with, there are times which our own coping styles do not work. It is then that outside help is critical to reduce the risk of symptoms worsening or to spend years just "surviving." It does NOT have to be like this. I can help you sort through the pain and get to a place where peace exists, where healthy relationships exist and where you are optimistic.

Lyndsay Elliott, PsyD

Clinical Psychologist

Many of us seek therapy to get relief from emotional distress, or to manage a problem that we are having in our lives. But often, those problems are connected to something deeper and causes us to feel “stuck” in patterns that we are unaware of. A full exploration of your history helps to uncover those more unconscious thoughts and reactions. Learning to manage the problems, while also addressing the underlying triggers is a crucial part in feeling more effective.

Psychotherapist

Anthony Fiore, Ph.D.

Licensed Psychologist

Within driving distance of Laguna Woods

I do short-term solutions-oriented therapy to help you think differently about yourself and your world and then develop skills to better deal with your issues from the past or to better deal with current areas of difficulty. We start by assessing problem areas, and then deciding together how best to approach them and what result we would like at the end of therapy. Therapy itself involves talking in sessions, and feedback from me,but also many other skill-building activities such as reading, practicing new behaviors between sessions, and doing things to reduce life stress.

Psychotherapist

Marijane Ward, Ph.D.

Licensed Clinical Psychologist

Within driving distance of Laguna Woods

I enter into each new psychotheraputic relationship with an extreme prejudice that therapy works, for most people. Finding the best fit is an important component to good treatment. It's important for the person whom you are sharing your most vulnerable and initimate information be someone you have faith in, sets good boundaries, understands your specific needs and that you can ask questions freely and without judgement. I work collaboratively with clients to better gain a sense of understanding about their particular problems or concerns. Each therapist brings their own education, personality and experiences to the therapy hour, its part of our humanness and this must be a good fit.

Does therapy really work? Yes, it does! Talk therapy is not only effective, but it helps you build neurons as you stretch your capacity to think and feel. Do you ever feel as if you are doing the same actions over and over and it leads to the same results? I can help you understand the patterns of behavior that in the past may have lead to less than desirable outcomes. Therapy is an incredible tool which enables you to see problems and situations from a different perspective. Finally, therapy is a safe place to talk about the things you may not feel comfortable saying to anyone else. Call me for a free 15 minute consultation.

I am Kristi Starkey a Marriage and Family Therapist in Mission Viejo, CA and I use attachment theory as my main approach to psychotherapy. Attachment theory serves as a solid foundation for understanding the development of ineffective coping strategies and the underlying dynamics of your emotional difficulties. I can help you with attachment anxiety and attachment avoidance so you will understand how past experiences with caregivers or significant others have shaped your attachment. I will also help you see how these patterns work to protect you, not only early in life, but also later in life and how they contribute to your experiences of distress.

Licensed Clinical Social Worker, Clinical Psychology Doctor

Within driving distance of Laguna Woods

My approach to psychotherapy is collaborative in that I work with my clients to unearth dysfunctional patterns of behaving or relating that are keeping them from the fulfilling lives and/or relationships they seek. As a solutions-focused psychotherapist I use complementary therapy approaches and techniques to teach clients new skills, increase understanding and insight, and build healthier lifestyle habits that are customized to address their unique therapy goals. My clients are encouraged to practice these new behaviors and ways of thinking between sessions so that the changes they make through our work together produce more satisfying and fulfilling lives.
