Jon-Paul Bird is a therapist in Los Angeles, CA. Contrary to the classic tweed jacket, elbow-patched analyst that just nods and grunts, therapy with Jon-Paul will feel approachable and warm yet knowledgeable and trustworthy to sit with your most private thoughts.
If you are dealing with anxiety, work stress, relationship problems, and creative blocks Jon-Paul is trained to help you feel your best again. As a licensed marriage and family therapist (LMFT) he has years of experience working with entertainment industry professionals, high achievers, and racial identity issues in an effort to help them redefine their direction, improve satisfaction in their career and manage the stress that comes with it.
Serving busy LA-area professionals, Jon-Paul understands that getting to the office is not always possible.
