Marriage & Couples Counseling
Relationship Counseling That Makes A Difference
We offer personalized approaches to couples counseling and marriage therapy. These include pre-nuptial help through premarital counseling, relationship help, and post-divorce services. We understand that each couple faces unique challenges. These challenges require a personal approach to therapy. The initial spark of romance can dim as time goes on. Sometimes this can lead to a bigger rupture, such as an affair, throwing yourself into work or hobbies, or feeling more like roommates than partners. This doesn’t mean the connection is gone forever. At Estes Therapy we offer long term solutions to help solidify your relationship. We are here to address the underlying factors that have been blocking connection, and offer long term solutions to help solidify your relationship. If you are ready to heal your relationship, we are here to help.
Strengthen communication and deepen connection before tying the knot
Before tying the knot, many couples choose premarital counseling. Therapy isn’t just helpful when your relationship is in a rocky place - it is a great preventative tool as well. Through premarital therapy you will improve communication skills, create and communicate boundaries, and learn conflict resolution. You will explore past experiences that are hindering current connection to help you grow closer and strengthen your bond. Premarital counseling helps you gain a greater understanding of not only your relationship and your partner, but yourself too. Even if you feel that your relationship is strong, premarital counseling can help make it even stronger. Before walking down the aisle, give our professionals at Estes Therapy Oceanside a call to learn how premarital counseling can help you. Every couple will face turbulence. With counseling, you’ll come out on the other side stronger than ever.
Divorce happens. We can help it to happen amicably.
The reasons why a couple might decide to divorce are as varied as the couples themselves. It can be hard to pinpoint the exact cause of why a couple decides to go their separate ways, especially when one person says they no longer love the other. We help couples get to the heart of the problem and discuss their concerns and reasons in a supportive, open environment. If you and your partner are willing to speak to a divorce counselor, we can help make the divorce process a lot easier for everyone. You can expect our full support and a variety of tools to help you cope with this loss in your life.
Individual & relationship therapy
Relationships, regardless of the shape they take, encounter the same kinds of problems and concerns. LGBT couples face these common problems, and more. Everyone just wants to feel loved and be accepted by their partners, families, and communities. It is your right. It is everyone’s right. We are very proud to offer LGBT counseling to our clients in North County San Diego. We know that individual and couples therapy for gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender clients can be hard to come by, even as the stereotypes continue to fall away. We’re here for you - for your individual journey & to help you in your relationships. We will help you improve your communication, improve conflict resolution, heal, grow, and become more in tune with yourself.

Meet Our Founder, Jennine
It’s been nearly 20 years since I first became interested in studying psychotherapy. I began practicing the scientific approaches to psychotherapy in 1997 and I was hooked from then on.
I earned my Master’s Degree in Marriage and Family psychotherapy in 2004 and I am currently licensed as a Marriage and Family Therapist MFT (LMFT#47653) with the Board of Behavioral Sciences (BBS).
I focus my practice upon the empirically-based and proven research methods of Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT), Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT).
I’ve seen these techniques consistently get results and I truly believe they are the most effective at creating positive, long-term change.

It is more than a job for them and you feel that when working with them. I can’t recommend therapy enough and I can’t recommend specifically Estes Therapy enough. Thank you!
Intentional, practiced, warm, devoted, and caring are a few of the words that come to mind when I think of Dana Pasculescu at Estes Therapy. Dana works to meet every single person where they are at every single time she meets them.
