Andrew Sears | Therapy & Couples Counseling, MA, LMFT, Marriage & Family Therapist in Los Angeles
From personal experience, traumas as children or as adults can plague us for the rest of our lives. They impact us in many ways. Goals feel out of reach, peers unsupportive, or you feel alienated from yourself. These feelings tend to make us seek out changes, but how far are we willing to go? The best parts of ourselves are often locked deep inside us. Self-doubt, a need for validation, 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 own relational interactions, we work together to form new self-beliefs that will help you face the world with better self-awareness, acceptance, confidence, and connection.
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.
