While sunny California may be known throughout the world for having some of the most desirable places in the world to live, there are certain cities that truly stand out even in this state.

Also, many individuals will seek individual counseling during and after divorce as this traumatic life event can come with a number of substantial mental health concerns.

Anxiety, depression, suicidal thoughts, extreme mood changes, insomnia and more can all be side effects following a divorce. It is not uncommon for individual on either side of a divorce to experience these challenges.

One of the most common things that mental health care professional treat is depression—this is true whether it is new onset depression, or a clinical, ongoing issue. Depression is a very serious issue not only in states like California where divorce rates tend to be high, but around the country as well.

Depression not only severely impacts overall quality of life, but it is linked to drug and alcohol abuse as well as many individuals use these substances in order to try and cope with their lingering depression. This is a problem around the country and particularly in California where the percentage of individuals using and abusing drugs is even higher than it is in the rest of the country.

  • Do I think my condition requires a specialist?

  • Is location an important factor to me? Am I more likely to go to my appointments if the office is near work or near my home?
  • Do I want ongoing support, or do I want a “cure” as soon as possible?
  • Are drugs or prescriptions something I would consider as part of my treatment?

You should also check with your insurance company at this time to determine whether or not your insurance plan will cover the therapist you are interested in. It is always smart to check on this first before you make an appointment with a therapist or counselor.
