You just want your best friend back.

Remember when you used to get butterflies every time your partner messaged you? Now you don’t know if today is going to end in a blowout fight, the cold shoulder, or losing your better half forever. 

Aren’t you sick and tired of:

  • Constant conflict and fighting destroying your peace of mind
  • Feelings of self-doubt and frustration making you question your judgment
  • The fear that you’ll miss your chance to recover your relationship

We've helped thousands of couples in San Diego get back on track

For over 20 years our team of expert therapists has helped all kinds of couples emerge from toxic patterns and negative cycles and achieve lasting love and kindness. We understand the nuances of conflict and help couples emerge from despair into mutual understanding and respect.

Here's how it works.


Personal Therapist Pairing

Your free 10-minute consultation gives you a chance to share the unique circumstances of your situation.

Based on that conversation, we’ll personally pair you with the Estes therapist whose experience, tools, approach, and tone best resonate with you and your partner.


Focus on Right Now

Together with your therapist, you’ll drill in on on the RIGHT NOW conflicts and create a plan to cool tensions and reconnect. 

As you progress through your sessions, you’ll perfect the tools and techniques you need to build and nurture a supportive relationship.


Fixes for the Future

This final stage equips you and your partner  with new strategies and tools. You’ll be capable of independently sustaining and nurturing your relationship. 

As always, we’re here if you need us, but our goal is for you to feel confident and self-sufficient.

Take $30 off your next appointment, only during Mental Health Awareness Month.

This May, for Mental Health Awareness Month, we’re offering $30 off your next session. Schedule your free 10-minute consultation today and get your partner back.

Here's what people are saying about us

Even though we don’t EVER ask for testimonials from clients, we love hearing positive feedback about the impact our therapists have made on clients from publicly posted reviews.*
“Estes Therapy provides such a friendly and nurturing environment. Dana S helped us discover the underlying issues that get in the way of positive communication and offered healthier ways to communicate. She is very compassionate and encouraging, and truly cares about your needs and goals. Highly recommend Dana S and anyone else at Estes Therapy!”



“I wanted to leave a review for my therapist Sarah. I’ve been going to therapy for many years and have had good experiences but my sessions with her have by far been the most impactful. Working with [Sarah] has made me feel equipped to tackle life’s most challenging circumstances, and I cannot express my gratitude enough. Do yourself a favor and get in to see her. It’s well worth it.”


“Estes Therapy literally saved my life. If you are looking for patient, passionate, knowledgeable, friendly, intelligent, warm, genuine therapists, come here. 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!”


“I worked with Lauryn Plush for a little over two years, and I can say that she is without a doubt one of the most caring and empathetic people I have ever met. Being lucky enough to work with Lauryn showed me that she is truly a one of a kind listener, and I would not refer any of my friends or family to anyone but Lauryn for couples and single counseling.”


“Therapy is hard! But so worth it. Sarah has challenged me, laughed with me, and guided me as I’ve grown and healed. We’ve taken our time being comfortable before diving deeper and deeper.”


“Estes Therapy is fantastic, they are very caring, understanding, and professional. I can’t recommend them enough. Sarah O’Leary has been a great help and resource for me, thank you.”


*We cannot confirm or deny if any of these testimonials are from clients, colleagues, or strangers who we’ve never been in contact with but left a review. We are just trying to give you the most information in one place about the Estes Team, which includes links to publicly stated reviews.
