Simi Valley Counseling – Depression, Mental Health Services in California
People of all types of mental health backgrounds find counseling useful. Believe it or not, we often see otherwise mentally healthy people for coaching designed to help them “level up.” For example, people seeking to advance their careers or personal development can benefit from therapeutic coaching.
However, the majority of people come to us with something bothering them. Often, it’s serious—you may have suffered a significant trauma that you need help facing and moving past, or perhaps you need help adjusting to the loss of a close friend or family member. Or, if you’ve recently lost a job, are suffering or have a friend or family member suffering from substance abuse, the reasons for seeking help likely seem fairly obvious.
Still others don’t even know what’s wrong, only that something isn’t quite right. That’s okay. You know yourself best, and if you feel you need help, even if you don’t know why, contact us. As professionals, we’re able to help you pinpoint what’s going on—and more importantly, we can help you develop a plan to overcome whatever is holding you back from your happiest, healthiest life.
We’ve worked with clients facing many issues, including (but definitely not limited to) the following:
- Depression and anxiety
- Substance abuse
- Social isolation and loneliness
- Eating disorders
- And more
Whether your problem is listed above or not, your reasons for considering counseling are valid. We’ve seen all shapes and sizes of mental health concerns, and if there’s one thing we know, it’s that every person is unique and deserving of the best chance at a full, happy, and healthy life.

How Can Therapy Help?
Therapy is one of the most positive things you can do for yourself. During the first sessions, the therapist will talk extensively with you to get to know who you are—your hopes, dreams, past, and future goals. Then, we’ll develop a plan to get you from where you are to where you want to be. That will look a little different for everyone. If you’re experiencing social anxiety, we’ll figure out what the root of that anxiety is and help you process it. Then, we’ll likely use exposure therapy to gradually acclimate you to larger and larger groups. Or, if you’re experiencing grief, we’ll work with you to acknowledge those emotions and shift your thought process from a negative cycle to one in which you can accept life without that person.
Regardless of the particular needs you bring to therapy, one of the key goals is to teach you skills that will serve you for a lifetime. Sometimes, you may only need a few sessions to restore equilibrium, and sometimes it may take a number of sessions to get you to a point where you’re capable of handling your stressors and triggers independently—either way, healthy independence is the end goal.
