Covid-19 Message

These are really challenging times and the constant stress we are being put through sometimes feels unmanageable. If you're having a hard time sleeping, concentrating, motivating or feeling like yourself, you're not alone. You might be overwhelmed and feeling devastated by the news, worried about your friends and family and unsure how to navigate these waters.

Maybe you're actually doing ok, but finally have the time to slow down and need somewhere to unpack emotions that are finally coming to the surface.

Isolation is hard on us- we're meant to attach and be connected to others. The daily interactions that we have feed us and let us know that we're ok and that life is normal. For right now, all of that is turned upside down and if you're feeling the impact of that change, it's more important than ever to take care of yourself.

I'm helping people in that process through online therapy sessions. I'm offering video and/or phone sessions during this time and I am taking new patients. I am accepting patients anywhere in California. Please reach out and schedule a session or if you have any questions.

Entertainment Industry Therapy

The entertainment industry is fraught with land mines.

You make one wrong step and it feels like you could just lose everything. To make matters worse, there's not a lot of moderation or grey area; you're on top of the world one minute, and the next you're free falling to your destruction.

You're surrounded by praise, loud music, sensory overload, constant push notifications, and then suddenly…you're not. And the silence is deafening.

Navigating this rollercoaster and finding the middle ground would keep you from crashing, but you just can't seem to do it on your own.

No one warned you about this part of your career, and the comparisons you make between yourself and everyone else have you fully convinced that its you

From the outside, no one might guess what's going on inside. You've become a master at hiding your pain and the work it takes to keep that up is starting to wear on you. The pressure to keep up the façade is overwhelming and you fear you might crack. It has become exhausting.

I understand that you want to find the best therapist for you and that it's hard to even know where to start. Anxiety tells you that you need to deal with it NOW and that just makes it feel like one more added task that causes stress. Depression tells you that there is no point or that it sounds too hard to follow through. Your hopelessness becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy.

Hi, I'm Elise, and I help people in the entertainment industry find their footing so that they can continue doing what they love without letting it destroy them in the process.
