Psychotherapist

Nancy D Young, Ph.D.

Licensed Clinical Psychologist

3505 Cadillac Avenue, Bldg O, Suite 109, Costa Mesa, CA 92626

As life gets increasingly complex, occasionally we just need somebody to talk to… someone who cares, but who does not have a personal agenda with us… someone to bounce things off of, from whom we might acquire skills and tools that haven’t occurred to us, someone to walk with us as we sort things out. Psychotherapy gently facilitates the exploration and resolution of personal and/or interpersonal concerns according to our own specific individual needs and goals.

Looking for a change? Online counseling is convenient, effective, efficient, and confidential.
I provide brief solutions-focused psychotherapy to help clients assess personal and professional functioning, clarify goals, and strengthen social and emotional skills. I specialize in brief online relationship counseling. Online counseling allows clients to seek help as needed, engage in therapy at a schedule that's convenient to them, and keep their counselor as they progress through life. I work with LGBTQ and hetero clients on individual, couple, and alternative relationship concerns. Clients explore issues that impact their professional and personal relationships, including communication, power dynamics, and intimacy. I accept US$ and cryptocurrencies.

Psychotherapist

Kristi Starkey, MS, MFT, #52051

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

1700 Adams Avenue, Suite 214, Costa Mesa, CA 92626

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.

3 Quick Tips to manage your stress and anger: - Use your work-out time to process your stress and anger - Use “On-the-Spot Tension Tamers” - Have an “Emergency Exit Strategy” I’d like to offer you 3 quick tips on managing the stress or anger in your life. Although I’ve written more extensively on this in other publications, this is just a quick, short list of three things you can do to tone things down a notch and improve your life. First, make sure that you are exercising regularly. While you exercise, become aware of what is bothering you. As you focus on your stressors, let the physiological energy generated by your anger or angst be burned off by your body. Let the exertion cleanse you....

Associate Clinical Social Worker

3505 Cadillac Ave, Bldg O, Suite 109, Costa Mesa, CA 92626

Do you have a behavior, belief or irrational thought that you'd like to change? We often learn the "rules" of life from our family of origin. Sometimes it's believed that these "rules" are the truth; however, these "rules" are how we make it through our families. It is once these rules no longer work for us that we need to change them so we can live life differently and often better. It's not easy to make these changes but it is fully doable and I can help you with these changes. Let me help guide you. Start by calling me at 714-432-9856.

Psychotherapist

Tamara Kubiak, MA, MFTI

Marriage and Family Therapist Registered Intern

Within Driving Distance of Costa Mesa, CA

My goal with each client is to create a warm and accepting environment where personal growth and self-compassion can be developed. I believe that everyone has within them the ability to overcome their personal challenges using their individual strengths. Often these strengths are buried deep among the critical voices of others and ourselves. Through psychotherapy, we will work together to uncover your individual strengths and quiet your critical inner voice in order to inspire your authentic self to shine through. Please call me at (949) 445-3160 to see how I can help you.

Steven Harris, PhD

Licensed Clinical Psychologist

Within Driving Distance of Costa Mesa, CA

I try to begin psychotherapy with a clean slate. By this I mean that I have my over 20 years of experience and training, but that I need to start all over again (to uniquely know you!) in terms of learning from the brand new patient what their world is like, what their struggles and symptoms are telling me to help guide us to help them find their way through their dilemmas, goals, and other important matters. I find that the therapy relationship gives us a unique perspective on what it is like to be who they are and look for clues in our work about what occurs for you in relationships, providing a way to learn about who you are in the context of our working relationship.

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.

Psychotherapist

Kevin Fleming Ph.D.

Coach/Change Agent/Consultant

Costa Mesa, CA 92626

James Hillman once said, "We've had a hundred years of psychotherapy and the world is getting worse." While there are many occasions where the validation and listening endemic to psychotherapy makes sense, there are times where we over assume that "feeling better" and "changing behavior" are the same. Grey Matters International, Inc. goes after the forgotten brain laws to behavior change that therapists miss when processing hours and hours of dialogues with people. Utilizing a cutting edge technology to facilitate the emotional process of change, we can make the therapy process way more effective, faster, and with less money spent.
