Erik Edler, Licensed Psychotherapist

Erik Edler, Licensed Psychotherapist

I call myself the Relationship Therapist, because ultimately, almost all our issues come down to our relationships, whether that is with our partners, our friends, our parents, our siblings, or even the longing to have a relationship that isn't there.  Finding a therapist who can really help is the first and most important step. My treatment approach is very interactive, focusing on education, emotional processing, and skill-building.  I feel it's important to be real with clients, to really listen, to always be supportive, and to give honest feedback. You'll discover new ways of thinking about yourself and your partner, and the issues you face.  Most importantly, you're going to need a new skill set to get past the challenges you are currently facing, whether as a couple or as an individual. 

My specializations are:

  • Couples counseling because your relationship *can* survive and thrive.
  • Anxiety counseling and depression counseling because you *can* overcome the painful feelings that hold you back.
  • Life coaching & life transitions because you can reach your *best* potential.
  • Gay and lesbian counseling because now is your time to thrive!

Please feel free to contact me for a free phone consultation, and we can talk a little about the issues you're facing, and then decide how we can best go forward.
