I tried this (it didn't work unfortunately) and even deleted everything, reinstalling origin and sims 4 completely. I don't have any mods and I didn't have this problem until the last origin update of 2017. any suggestions?  I have some dlc packs would that effect it?

A new update to Origin was just released, 10.5.12. Are you still having the issue after updating?

I do have some cc on mine. I had a little just a couple of things and I added about 5 more and it won't open. I didn't think it was a problem. I honestly think that it is Apple computers and how sucky they are because I had no problem on my EP Laptop. Standard smile

Is the extra CC you've just added compatible with the current patch level of the game?
