Costa Mesa has some of the best shopping in the Orange County area and is a great place to live and work. For many of us, when we think of shopping we picture ads of smiling faces. Or we envision ourselves carrying shopping bags and walking through the mall with family or friends, laughing and enjoying our new purchases and the good company. Though shopping itself is wonderful and can be a lot of fun, sometimes we shop to fill a void in our lives that can’t be filled with the latest tech item or those perfect shoes.
It can be hard to recognize when we are using shopping to forget about the emptiness we feel. We can end up getting a wake up call in the form of a huge credit card bill or a spouse who is angry with our financial decisions, but often times shopping for the next best thing becomes a silent way to cope that seems to work for awhile. As a therapist, I can help you figure out why that empty feeling is there so you can shop because you want to, not because you need to.
We can determine together how you can find real and lasting happiness in your life. I’m a therapist located in Orange County, only about 20 minutes away from the heart of Costa Mesa. If you are dealing with loneliness, feeling emotionally numb, having relationship difficulties, or seeking counseling for another reason, I am here for you.
