Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
“I work primarily with individuals, couples, and families to address the issues underlying communication differences. I assist couples with learning the art of fair fighting, reclaiming love within their marriages, and working on co-parenting skills when there are children from a previous marriage/relationship. I, also, enjoy working with couples who are planning to get married by empowering each partner with knowledge and tools for a strong relationship foundation.

In addition, I offer affairs counseling regardless of whether you are the hurt partner or the unfaithful partner. A few examples that we will work on are rebuilding trust and self-esteem, talking about the painful issues without you hurting each other, learning how to overcome your obsessive thoughts, and re-establishing love, intimacy, honor and respect in your marriage or relationship.

I offer my clients traditional office sessions, certainly when weather dictates, and for those who are willing to embrace and trust the concept, I offer ‘Therapy in the Park'. I find conducting sessions in the park helps to reduce your anxiety leading to a more intimate sharing of inner feelings.

If this philosophy of therapy makes sense to you, simply contact me to discuss your situation in confidence. Therapy is an important, life-changing experience, it should not be entered into lightly, and so I offer a FREE 30-minute phone consultation, giving us the opportunity to determine if together, we can change your life for the better.

You can learn how to change your relationship, your life, your whole being into a happy and healthy person that you want to be. It's an easy process; visit TherapyInThePark.com today to learn more or contact me email at Sylvia@therapyinthepark.com or by phone at 760.861.PARK (7275).

If you're ready to make changes in your life, then I look forward to working with you.”
