Professional Therapy for

Everyone

It’s quite common when it comes to mental health services to assume they only apply to individuals, but this sort of emotional and mental therapy can be beneficial for larger groups of patients as well. South Coast Community Services is proud to announce the launch of a brand new mental health services program under our umbrella of services: individual, couple, and family therapy. Through this program, small and large families, as well as couples, can seek the advice of experienced mental health professionals and get an outside perspective on how to handle various conflicts.

At South Coast Community Services in California, our mission is to provide inclusive and accessible therapy services for individuals from all walks of life. We understand that each person's journey is unique, and we are here to support you no matter the reason you are seeking therapy. Our team of Licensed Marriage and Family Therapists (LMFTs) is highly skilled and compassionate professionals who are dedicated to helping you navigate life's challenges and achieve your personal goals. Whether you are seeking therapy for relationship issues, mental health concerns, personal growth, or family counseling, our team is here to walk alongside you every step of the way. Learn more about how our Orange County or San Bernardino County family and relationship therapy programs can help you and contact us today to get started!

My name is Amy, I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist who specializes in individual, couple, and family therapy. My experience encompasses more than 25 years of providing services in the mental health field. I am passionate about helping others and dedicated to bringing awareness to mental health needs. Life can bring many joys, but it can also bring challenges and struggles. Sometimes these challenges are overwhelming and impact different parts of our life such as our relationships and our self-care. Therapy can be a positive support to help you manage and work through your struggles to find hope, healing, and connection. Seeking help is a courageous step toward your healing. I would be honored to support you in this process. I believe in a "whole person" approach to utilize your strengths, help you gain control of your life, and regain balance. I am dedicated to providing a safe, supportive, and non-judgmental therapeutic environment. I use an eclectic approach that encompasses Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Mindfulness, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, Art and Play Therapy, Family Systems, and Solution-Focused Therapy techniques. I will work collaboratively with you to personalize your treatment to help you meet your mental health goals.

OUR FAMILY & RELATIONSHIP THERAPY

Is Designed For Everyone

When it comes to seeking therapy, counseling, or any mental health services, there is not one specific type of person who can benefit from South Coast Community Services. Our mental health therapy professionals are well-equipped to greet and work with everyone who comes through our doors, regardless of their concerns or specific situations. Our family and relationship therapy in Orange County and San Bernardino County is designed for anyone needing a comfortable, non-judgmental, HIPAA-compliant place to speak openly about their feelings or concerns. There is no issue too big or too small for our mental health service professionals to help you work through it!

It’s not uncommon for engaged California couples to seek out counseling from South Coast Community Services to better strengthen their bonds prior to the wedding, thus laying the groundwork for a stable marriage. Married couples who have been together for a few years or several decades are also welcome to take advantage of our marriage and family therapy sessions. Our staff members believe there is no shame in asking for a little help, especially when it comes to communicating with and better understanding your spouse. Biological, adoptive, or blended families can also reap the rewards of our family counseling and live in a cohesive, comfortable, healthy household. South Coast Community Services is here to help everyone experience positive mental health therapy!

AREAS OF SUPPORT

In Our Therapy Services

Our experienced team of therapists can assist with a wide range of challenges, including child behavior and attitudes. We understand that navigating the complexities of childhood can be overwhelming, and our therapists are here to help in guiding children toward positive emotional and behavioral development.

Conflict resolution within families is another area in which our therapy services can be instrumental. We recognize that conflicts and disagreements are natural parts of family dynamics, and our therapists are skilled in facilitating healthy communication and problem-solving techniques within the family unit. By addressing conflicts in a supportive and constructive manner, we aim to strengthen family relationships and foster a harmonious and loving environment.

Grief is a complex and deeply personal experience, and our therapists are equipped to provide compassionate support during times of loss and mourning. We understand that grief can manifest in various ways, and our therapy services offer a safe and understanding space for individuals to process their emotions and find healing. Our therapists are here to lend a listening ear, offer guidance, and help navigate the grieving process with empathy and care.

Supportive & Non-judgmental

Therapy Space

Mental health concerns, such as anxiety and depression, are areas in which our therapy services excel. Our therapists are trained in evidence-based approaches to address these conditions and provide effective strategies for managing symptoms. We offer a supportive and non-judgmental space where individuals can explore their emotions, improve coping skills, and work towards a more balanced and fulfilling life.

ADHD (Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder) can present unique challenges for individuals and their families. Our therapy services can provide valuable support for individuals diagnosed with ADHD, offering strategies and coping mechanisms to manage symptoms and improve daily functioning. With a personalized and tailored approach, our therapists collaborate with individuals to help them thrive in various aspects of life while working with the strengths and challenges associated with ADHD.

An Inside Look At

Our Therapy Process

Our family therapy is another form of mental health service that focuses on small groups of people as opposed to the individual. While our non-profit counseling experts often encourage open communication between individuals in a family, the overall goal is to strengthen relationships and promote better understanding between everyone involved. This area of our mental health services is designed to help develop and maintain healthy boundaries between family members, fiancés, and spouses. At South Coast Community Services, we focus on problem-solving and helping patients move through problem-solving steps in their interpersonal relationships. Contact us anytime to get started with therapy!

When To Consider

Therapy & Counseling

The big question when it comes to therapy is how to know when it’s time to start, or if this type of counseling is the answer. While it can be difficult to take the first step in scheduling mental health therapy sessions with South Coast Community Services, there is no harm in bringing up your concerns with a counseling professional. Our organization has worked with several clients across California and has experience helping them identify and work through different issues. Our mental health services are equipped to address any concern and provide comprehensive resources.

If you’re on the fence about contacting South Coast Community Services is the right course of action, ask yourself a few critical questions. Do you find yourself avoiding talking through conflicts with your spouse, leading to a breakdown in communication? Do you feel as though you’re not receiving the spousal support you need? Are you unable to bring important discussions up in front of your family members? Our therapy can help address all of these in a supportive, HITRUST-certified location under the care of our staff. If your concerns aren’t listed here, but you’re seeking a place to speak openly and comfortably, get in touch today!
