Overcome Depression, Defeat Anxiety, & Build Healthy, Strong Relationships.  Live from the core of your True Self.

Welcome.  I'm Erik Edler, LMFT, a licensed psychotherapist/counselor in private practice in Long Beach, at the border of Seal Beach, close to Huntington Beach and accessible from Orange County.
I do this work because I believe so strongly in your potential, and the potential of your relationship.  I feel sure that you can overcome the problems that hold you back now, and that you can find strength, peace of mind, clarity, and confidence.
 My work is dedicated to providing empowering Individual Therapy and personalized Couples Counseling/Coaching.  I'm here to help you overcome depression, anxiety, and relationship problems to become happier, stronger, and more confident in yourself and in your partnership.  I work with people seeking the good relationship they long for, build (or rebuild) healthy relationships that last, and I can help you heal from broken or painful relationships that have left lasting pain.  Please check out the menu here to find more information on how I can help you specifically.  I specialize in working with these issues:

Depression, anxiety, and relationship issues all interact.  Your depression or anxiety may stem from current relationship problems or things that have gone wrong with relationships in the past.  We all really need each other, but all too often, things go wrong.  Relationships are so important because they form us and shape us, from our parents, our brothers and sisters, the kids at school, all the way from the past and into the present.  Sometimes it's a lost love you've never recovered from.  

We struggle to find happiness inside ourselves and with the people we share our lives with.  Each of our relationships leaves it's imprint on us, for good or for bad.  It's all too common to fall into unhealthy, dysfunctional patterns, for how we feel about ourselves and how we relate to others.  

These patterns become depression, anxiety, and relationship problems and conflicts.  The patterns repeat indefinitely, causing pain and unhappiness over and over again, until we finally take the time to do some dedicated work on them.  A good therapy experience can be transformative, and that's where I can help.  Feel free to contact me with any questions you may have about how I work or how I can help in your specific situation.
