When to See a Los Angeles Psychologist

In a world that exerts massive amounts of stress and pressure on all of us, more and more people are finding themselves in need of professional therapy. Life is full of adversity and is rarely without challenges. Sometimes, we can become so overwhelmed that it becomes difficult or even impossible to move on or cope with our circumstances. For example, social anxiety, clinical depression, or the death of a loved one are just a few of the many problems that can cause a person to need a psychologist.

There are many signs to look for that indicate it's time to get professional therapy. While the reasons are many, some of the most common reasons people seek help from a Los Angeles psychologist include anxiety and depression.


Everyone faces stress in their day-to-day lives. However, some stress accumulates and has a snowball effect on our psyche. Whether it's work, relationships, or the loss of a loved one, overwhelming or unremitting stress can lead to uncontrolled emotions, such as crying without warning or bursts of anger. Stress can also lead to extreme anxiety, depression, and isolation.

Further, this type of stress isn't always the result of external stimuli. Sometimes, we become absorbed in negative thoughts or emotions, especially if we have had traumatic events in our lives. Reliving these experiences in our minds causes abnormal amounts of stress, and over time, it can overwhelm us and cause our mental health to deteriorate rapidly significantly. An experienced psychologist, such as Dr. Jane Beresford can help.


If you are experiencing constant or frequent feelings of helplessness or hopelessness that persist for months on end; this is not normal! While there are things you can do at home to try to combat depression, the condition tends to linger and overwhelm individuals, encompassing and impacting every aspect of their lives.

Depression is a serious condition that causes people to lose interest in the things they once enjoyed, experience uncontrolled emotions, and experience fatigue or lethargy. Depression is not only bad for mental health, but it's also bad for physical health. Depression is a dark, lonely, and dangerous place.
