Psychologist

OC Anxiety Center, Ph.D.

Licensed Therapist

Within driving distance of La Palma

The mind is incredibly malleable. Our environment and reactions to it continually form thoughts and processes for thinking. Sometimes, this happens without our consent or awareness and we end up with thought patterns we cannot find our way out of. We may not even know where they came from.
