About Us

Drs. Paul and Ashley Fick are both licensed psychologists specializing in clinical and forensic psychology. Dr. Ashley also is a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist. They have been happily married since 1991 when Ashley assumed the role of stepmother to Paul’s three daughters.

Dr. Paul has been helping individuals, couples, and families since 1983 while Dr. Ashley began her career in 1995. In April 2004, they combined their practices, founding South County Psychotherapy in Laguna Niguel, CA, where they utilize their "effective, no-nonsense" therapy to help people resolve individual, marital, and familial concerns. Drs. Fick help individuals with a variety of needs – ranging from relatively minor struggles to severe emotional distress.

After years of assisting individuals and couples struggling with infidelity and sexual compulsions, Dr. Paul and Ashley have developed The Affair Repair Program. They help couples desperately searching for relief from the emotional and relational damage caused by this type of destructive behavior.
