Transform Your Relationship To Life, Work and Love


Working in a creative industry in Los Angeles is brutal

Burn out, lack of inspiration, the uncertainty of work, anxiety, and depression are just a few of the challenges actors, writers, artists, entertainers, and other creative professionals face. Juggling your craft, along with family, dating, hobbies, and self-care is more complicated than you thought.

Doing the work you love should be insanely rewarding

There’s nothing more fulfilling than knowing you are doing the work you were called to do. When you dreamt of pursuing your passion, you imagined waking up every day excited and hopeful. You anticipated personal and professional freedom and a sense of purpose. 

But here you are, dealing with self-doubt, complicated professional relationships, creative blocks, chronic stress, unpredictable schedules, and inconsistent income. There’s a lot to be anxious about.

Therapy can help.

Indeed, pursuing your passion isn’t easy. It might involve changing your vision, overcoming your fears, and maneuvering through a variety of obstacles. With a little help, you can create a sustainable career doing what you love. 

In therapy, you will learn how to manage your personal and creative life with greater self-awareness and confidence. I’ll help you develop essential skills to cope with challenges. You’ll expand your comfort zones. You’ll use your strengths to take your craft and career to a new level.
