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.

Learning skills along with self exploration can lead to progress in a shorter amount of time. Clients of all ages can benefit from this approach. My specialties include anxiety and mood disorders, child/adolescent i...
