MY NAME IS QUENTIN HAFNER AND I HELP PEOPLE FIND SOLUTIONS TO RELATIONSHIP CHALLENGES.

Relationships, when working well, can be our biggest source of life satisfaction. And also, when they are not working well, can be our biggest source of discontent.  At some point in our lives, we come to a crossroads where we realize that one or more key relationships in our lives are not working well, and we may feel uncertain on what to do about it, or how to make it better. This might come in the way of our marriage relationship, our business partnership, our relationship with our children, or our management teams. The focus of my work is to partner with people to find solutions to relationship challenges. Together, we accomplish your goals through a 3-step process:

1

Developing clarity around desired outcomes.

2

Creating a clear strategy to reach goals and objectives.

3

Implementing necessary solutions to reach desired change.

As a PROFESSIONAL helping people reach their goals with relationshipS...

My promise is to help you move from feeling frustrated, confused, and distracted, to reclaiming your peace-of-mind, feeling more energized, and ultimately discovering the resolution that is right for you. As a licensed relationship therapist 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 feel incredibly honored to work with my clients as I watch them develop solutions to a myriad of relationship challenges, that ultimately result in feeling better in many areas of life. My story of becoming a therapist & relationship consultant began with my own personal development journey, so I am fondly aware with how important this relationship can be.

Prior to working as a therapist & relationship consultant for leaders, 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 great connections through relationships. Eventually, I made the decision to leave my corporate job, and launch out to start a private practice with the focus of helping people solve relationship challenges.

I have spent nearly 15,000 thousand hours doing one-to-one and group consulting and just as many hours learning, consulting, and studying on all things related to what’s necessary for optimal relationship functioning. Since completing my Master’s Degree in Clinical 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 and personal development.

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 worktoo; 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 clients. I know choosing someone to work with 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. I would be honored to meet you, and would like to hear your story.
