When it comes to counseling, we use a team approach.
Addressing your wellbeing doesn’t have to be painful: We are here to help you get emotionally fit – all it takes is the commitment to show up and begin.
At The Mental Gym in West Hollywood we practice a unique blend of Solution-focused and Cognitive Behavioral Therapies. Combining these tried-and-true methods of self-betterment, we utilize both action and insight to tackle issues; partnering with you to create a psychological playbook designed to help transform unproductive perceptions and/or behavioral missteps that have you struggling.
By peeling back the basics of human thinking, we can aid you in recognizing how these thoughts affect your feelings, attitudes and actions. Together, we uncover any negative self-concepts and emotions that may be blocking your fulfillment and compromising your wellbeing.
Using logic and study-proven techniques, we work with you to increase your emotional I.Q.; creating the mental balance and emotional stamina our often high-stress world requires. Skilled and invested, we reinforce effective strategies and empower you to create and sustain a regimen that will keep you healthy and happy for years to come.
