Relationship Health & Personal Strength
Welcome. I'm Erik Edler, a licensed Marriage & Family Therapist (psychotherapist/counselor) in private practice in Seal Beach. My calling is in providing personalized Couples Counseling/Coaching, and empowering Individual Therapy. I help clients become their strongest and their best. I help clients find the good relationship they long for, build (or rebuild) strong relationships that stand the test of time, and I help clients heal from broken or painful relationships that have left scars.
If you're looking for hope and the possibility of real improvement in your feelings and your relationship, you've come to the right place. Effort equals success. And the effort we put into our own growth and the growth of our relationships returns to us with the most meaningful and worthwhile success we could hope for.
Relationships form us and shape us, from both the past and in the present. You may come to find that the depression or anxiety your struggle with has it's origin in relationship wounds, possibly from mom or dad, brother or sister, or a lost love that you've never recovered from. Relationships are complex and dynamic, and you're wise to get good consultation on how to help yourself and your partner really thrive. I hope that you will find hope and encouragement here for the challenges you may be facing.

In our world today, a very positive shift has taken place. Going to individual therapy or couples counseling is now a sign that you are being proactive about your health and wellbeing, and the wellbeing of those you love. Life's challenges, especially during these difficult times, can create a lot of stress, anxiety, depression, and relationship conflict. It's more important than ever to consult wisely, to get good feedback, and to be your strongest and your best.
This is your life. Your personal wellbeing really matters. It's also important to keep in mind that the best thing you can do for yourself and those you love is to simply be the best, healthiest you that you can be. Participating in individual therapy or couples counseling is about taking care of yourself and those you share your life with. Whether you're looking for some support and guidance through a challenging situation or you're just ready to move in a new direction in your life, I look forward to working with you to achieve your goals.

"Soon the child's clear eye is clouded over by ideas and opinions, preconceptions and abstractions. Simple free being becomes encrusted with the burdensome armor of the ego. Not until years later does an instinct come that a vital sense of mystery has been withdrawn. The sun glints through the pines, and the heart is pierced in a moment of beauty and strange pain, like a memory of paradise. After that day, we become seekers." Peter Matthiessen
