Michaela Tork, LMFT, MA, Marriage & Family Therapist in Burbank
Do you wake up feeling depressed dreading to get through another day? Do you try to fill the void in your life with sensation-seeking behaviors: alcohol, drugs, food, sex, shopping, TV, video games, internet surfing, online gaming, gambling etc.? Have you lost touch with the aspirations and dreams that used to motivate and inspire you? Are your relationships troubled? I can help! Seeking therapy takes courage and the prospect of talking to a stranger can be intimidating. I relate to the discomfort you may experience and provide a confidential, non-judgmental, supportive space to work with you.
I listen carefully guiding you to uncover and explore long-avoided feelings and longings that underlie states of depression, anxiety, or self-sabotage. Together we'll trace the inner logic that keeps you immobilized. You might reconnect to parts of yourself that have been submerged: childlike wonderment, spontaneity, creativity, passion.
If your career in the film and entertainment industry has caused you distress, I am familiar with the unique challenges of this competitive arena and can assist you in overcoming creative blocks and emotional barriers to your artistic endeavors.
