About Bruce Young's service

Bruce Young is a licensed therapist with extensive professional experience, based in California. He is internationally renowned as a published author, filmmaker, and acclaimed clinical educator. With a focus on helping clients facing disruptive or significant stress and anxiety, trauma and abuse, loss of motivation, low self-esteem and confidence, and depression, Bruce believes in treating everyone with warmth, empathy, genuineness, respect, and compassion. Through skill-based strategies of behavioral change, tailored to each individual’s unique needs, Bruce works collaboratively with his clients to develop effective solutions based on their history, strengths, cognitive patterns, and social support. He understands that seeking a more fulfilling and happier life takes courage, and he approaches his clients as equals, valuing their cultural, ethnic, and racial values. Confidentiality is of utmost importance to Bruce, with the exception of cases where there is a risk of harm to oneself or others, where involving significant others such as family members, friends, or professional caregivers becomes necessary to support treatment, care coordination, and recovery.
