Andrew Sears | Therapy & Couples Counseling, MA, LMFT, Marriage & Family Therapist in Los Angeles
Trauma that we experience as children or as adults can plague us for the rest of our lives. They change us in many ways. Your goals might feel out of reach, your peers are unsupportive, or you feel alienated from yourself and others. These feelings tend to make us seek out changes. I believe the best parts of ourselves are often locked deep inside us. Self-doubt, a need for confirmation from others, or a deprived or inflated sense of identity - these all lead to feelings of inadequacy, social anxiety, chronic depression, mania, fragmentation, sleeplessness, poor diet and exercise, boredom, loneliness, and despair.
I look for the negative core beliefs that stand between you and fulfillment. Using a non-judgmental approach and our interactions, we work together to form new self-beliefs that will help you face the world with better self-awareness. Many of my clients are actors and artists seeking confidence, grounding, and clarity of identity.
I strive to create a safe space to provide a constant in your life. In this space, you'll be able to explore and discover parts of yourself that are both working or not working, and through this discovery, acceptance, change and growth will occur.
