Mental Well-Being in 2020 & Beyond

As we get our footing in place for this new decade we realize so much of our professional success whether it be in the edit bay, the director’s chair or behind the lens has to do with what is going on in our brains. This month we are delighted to have Bill Leavitt, LMFT joining us to explore mental well-being as we tackle some of the key issues that affect freelancers and entertainment professionals. Come get information and tools on how to deal with the stress and uncertainly many of us face and make it a priority of taking care of your whole self this year!

Bill Leavitt is is licensed marriage and family therapist with a private practice in Burbank. His specialty is working with people who are stressed, anxious or depressed, and hitting a rough patch – grasping for answers and help.  He’s found that what we think, our self talk, drives the emotions, but also tends to be the key to open the door to other deeper aspects of our psyche that control our patterns of behavior. Once the door is opened a variety of techniques taken from a number of disciplines can be used. Bill has spent 12 years in the USMC and 20 + years in corporate America with an MBA. https://billleavitttherapy.com
