“When we are in a good space with ourselves, we achieve great things for ourselves and others. When we like who we are we treat others better. When we treat each other better we have healthier communities
and that’s how positive changes can happen.”
From folks on Skid Row to celebrity clientele in Los Angeles, day after day, client after client, for over 15 years, as a Clinical Psychologist, Dr. Liana has studied psychology and dedicated her life to helping people and has learned a thing or two about people along the way.
On this website, as a mental health clinician, Dr. Liana utilizes her knowledge of people and couples, and families, and relationships to share with you what she thinks our most common mental health trappings are and which therapeutic approaches work the best. She discusses topics that are most common to folks and offers sound and practical advice to those with questions or concerns.
As a writer, speaker, podcaster, advice columnist, vlogger, host, media psychologist, and consultant Dr. Liana’s mission is to address people’s psychological concerns and relationship struggles in a way that contributes to influencing people in a positive way.
As a media psychologist and consultant Dr. Liana’s mission is also to help disseminate accurate, scientific information and relay that to the public.
Why Dr. Liana is offering her professional experience here.
“We are indeed more similar than different. We need to know more about human nature and how to better understand ourselves and each other. With a little knowledge, some willingness and focus, and with support and practice folks can get to a better place then we are in a good space with ourselves, we achieve great things for ourselves and others.
When we like who we are we treat others better.“
This website is dedicated to those of you who haven’t been given a fair opportunity, don’t have resources, have struggled, can’t afford to see a therapist, etc. I am providing as much information as I can here to motivate you to learn and grow and be a good person in the world. I am grateful to the researchers, and educators and professors, and authors/writers, and social scientists, and clinicians. But I really want to thank those folks who have struggled and those who weren’t given a fair chance or the opportunity to be a better person.
While I can’t know you personally. I can share what I know about people and what I’ve learned, help over learning many therapies over two decades.
If you have a look you will find information that is helpful to you. I am doing my best to spend more time creating digital content. In the meanwhile, if you are truly concerned about a certain issue or problem, you should contact a local mental health provider sooner rather than later. There are some resources on my website which may help and we also have a clinical practice that can be contacted here.
This information is for you and I will do my best to keep it coming.
Feel like you’re the only person out there like you? (spoiler alert: you’re not)
