Ah, California. It’s home to LA, one of the biggest cities around. Many artistic people and aspiring actors come for their next big break. If you want to be famous, it requires a lot of motivation, which some people may be lacking if they are in poor mental health. 

Maybe you don’t want to be famous, but you should have strong mental health in order to accomplish your goals. Not only can a counselor improve your mental health, but they can create a map you can use to accomplish all your goals.

Do you want a change, such as the courage to move forward in your life? You may have tried to deal with this on your own and even exhausted most of the ways you usually use to deal with problems.

If you are feeling upset, worried, or angry, I want to address these concerns you and help you manage those feelings. In individual therapy, I focus on treating issues of mood, anxiety, repeated negative patterns of behavior (addictions), sexu...

You don't even recognize yourself anymore. You have no energy and just can't seem to keep up with everything that's piling up. Everyone is going on with their lives, but you just feel stuck. You've tried sharing with your loved ones but fear that you will a burden or even worse, feel judged. Meanwhile, you are not feeling good enough. It is a challenge to live everyday feeling like you can't fit in at work or with friends, though you strive for meaningful relationships. These feelings can leave you devastated.

I have always valued people who were considered “different,” unusual, strange, or odd. These people are often the underdogs. The ones society often rejects, ignores, or discourages because they don’t fit into standard categories. Society is often limiting because of the constant need to label or categorize people. I have always been a fan of people who throw these labels to the wind and march to the beat of their own drum. These people are unique and they are often the types of people who end up changing the world because they forge their own paths instead of foll...
