Love and work are areas that challenge us. Whether you are single or in a relationship, love can be tough to find or keep. Don't settle for loneliness, fights, circular arguments or cold distance. Good communication can be learned. Affairs can often be survived. If it's work that is a problem, are you suffering from anxiety, perfectionism, lack of confidence, or time crunch? I understand the specific challenges of being in the business world, and the needs of sensitive, creative personalities. Read what I have written about these subjects on my blog at: http://joycehouser.com/blog/

My specializations: * Individual and couples therapy; issues of intimacy, sexuality, and communication. * Therapy for professionals in business and the arts; self-esteem, workplace relationships * Addictions recovery; especially "love addiction" and "love avoidance."

I am a licensed psychotherapist with over 25 years of experience in Los Angeles. I am a working artist and published writer, and have helped people in the creative arts and business professions throughout my practice. I am author of the book SOMEONE TO TALK TO; Understanding How Therapy Heals.
