"Life is not about what has or will happen to you, it’s about how you respond. It’s about making meaning from our experiences and creatively transforming problems into possibilities. Therapy won’t rid you of problems but it will offer you a space to better understand the challenges you face and will help you grow, empower yourself… and build resilience for future challenges"

Some people are unable to sleep, have distressing thoughts, or cannot control troublesome habits and behaviors. Others have have struggled with chronic pain due to injuries or illnesses. Many have endured the stigma of having a major mental illness which created difficulties in daily functioning, mood swings, or poor judgement and distorted thinking. And others have functioned well with significant achievements in their careers, family, and relationships but still feel empty inside, and cannot experience pleasure, meaning, or fulfillment from their lives."

It can be a choice we make to explore ourselves today, examine the past or expand on ideas and future dreams. If you are driven to grow, develop and have a natural curiosity in examining life, living and discovering more about your own path, then psychotherapy is one way to engage in series of exploratory dialogues."

Adolescence describes the teenage years between 13 and 19 and can be considered the transitional stage from childhood to adulthood. However the physical and psychological changes that occur in adolescence can start earlier, and it can be a time of both disorientation and discovery. The transitional period can bring up issues of independence and self-identity. Sometimes teens may be experimenting with drugs and alcohol or sexuality. During this time, peer groups and external appearance tend to increase in importance.

For help with adolescents or for an 90403 adolescent therapist these professionals provide help for adolescent development and adolescent education. They include adolescent therapists in 90403, adolescent psychologists, and adolescent counselors. They can help with adolescent behavior, adolescent learning and adolescent discipline.

90403 teen Therapists also provide help for troubled teens in 90403 or troubled teen boys and girls. For parents of out-of-control teens, 90403 therapists can help with communicating and understanding your teen. And therapists in 90403 can help with teenager behavior and teen learning issues.

How can I tell if a therapist is right for me?
Therapists in 90403 are able to work with a wide range of issues.
