MY NAME IS QUENTIN HAFNER AND I HELP PEOPLE FIND SOLUTIONS TO life's CHALLENGES through improved relational & Emotional health.
As a therapist, counselor, and coach in Orange County working with individuals & couples, I help people move from feeling frustrated, confused, and distracted by challenges, to reclaiming peace-of-mind, feeling more energized, and ultimately discovering sustainable solutions to life’s challenges. As a licensed therapist in Orange County, and a consultant to business leaders & organizations, I combine my expertise in clinical psychology and relationship dynamics with real-world and practical applications that result in positive and measurable results for my clients. I like to say I have a therapists heart and a results-driven mind. Together, we will accomplish your goals through a 3-step process:
Developing clarity around desired goals and outcomes.
Creating a clear strategy to reach goals and objectives.
Implementing solutions to reach your desired change.
helping successful people connect better to themselves, and to others.
Prior to working as a therapist & leadership consultant in Orange County, I spent many years in the corporate world working for Big 4 public accounting & commercial real estate private equity firms, before realizing how much I enjoyed helping people create and sustain the lives they truly desired through improved connections to themselves and others. Eventually, I made the decision to leave my corporate job, and launch out to start a therapy & counseling private practice with the focus of helping people in leadership roles and their families solve people challenges.
I have spent over 15,000 thousand hours doing one-on-one counseling and group counseling, and just as many hours learning, consulting, and studying on all things related to what’s necessary for optimal relational and emotional functioning. Since completing my Master’s Degree in Psychology, I have gone on to teach at a local University and I have continued my education journey through doctoral level trainings, workshops, and supervision in the most cutting edge theories of relationship dynamics, leadership, emotional intelligence, and personal development. In 2020, I started pursuing an additional Master’s Degree is Organizational Leadership.
In 2018, as a way to help men and husbands solve challenges in their marriages, I published an Amazon.com #1 best-selling marriage book specifically for husbands; Black Belt Husband.
I am a lover of learning and hold onto the truism that I can only take my clients as far as I’ve gone myself.
That is why I continually remain in my own personal development work too; to continue growing for myself and my clients. When I’m not working, I love spending time with my family and being active with friends. I am happily married and a father of two young boys, Levi & Samuel. In my sparetime, I love training Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, surfing, camping, and getting lost trail running in the most incredible nature preserves in Orange County.
I think you can learn a lot about someone by their favorite magazines, so I thought I would share mine with you…
I believe that true, lasting change, happens in the context of a trusting relationship with another person, and that is what I hope to gain with all my therapy and counseling clients. I know choosing a therapist or counselor can sometimes be a difficult decision. If there’s anything I can do to ease your mind or help you in this process, please don’t hesitate to let me know. Please send me a message through my contact page if you feel like I may be a good fit for what you’re looking for, and we can set up an appointment to meet each other in person, or over the phone. I would be honored to meet you, and would like to hear your story.
