Love, work, and emotional health are the 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. In your work life, 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 areas of specialization are: * Individual and couples therapy; issues of intimacy, sexuality, and communication. * Business professionals; work stress and workplace relationships • Challenges in entertainment and the creative arts • Addictions recovery; especially "love addiction" and "love avoidance."
I am a licensed psychotherapist with over 25 years of experience in Los Angeles, committed to "normalizing" therapy for everyone. I am author of the book SOMEONE TO TALK TO; What Really happens in Therapy and How It Can Work for You.
