This last year has been so draining and you're just trying to stay afloat. Your anxiety keeps telling you that you have a million things that are left to get accomplished, and your depression is right there to tag in, making you feel terrible for not getting anything done on your list. You are trying to balance difficult co-workers, keeping (and maintaining) friendships, juggling 4 different schedules, and trying to keep your house from looking like a bomb went off. You smile through the day being a great pretender, only to be alone with your thoughts at night and feeling like you’re failing at adulting.

I work with youth and families who experience a wide range of referral concerns including anxiety and worry, obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), depression , disruptive behavior, ADHD, oppositional defiant disorder, sibling conflict, sleep concerns, school issues, toileting concerns, and more.
Taking the first step toward treatment isn’t easy, but neither is living in distress. Having a child who is experiencing a behavioral health concern can be frustrating, confusing, and frightening. But don't lose hope, there are solutions scientifically shown to be effective. As a licensed clinical psychologist, I exclusively utilize evidence-based treatments grounded in the science of behavioral health. I value collaboration and strive to ensure that treatment focuses on my clients' goals. Together we work towards a brighter future for your child and your family.

Counselor, MS, LPC

I also treat depression and anxiety disorders.
My approach to therapy relies on establishing a collaborative relationship with my patient(s) so that we can work together to identify the habitual patterns of thinking, feeling and acting that keep you from enjoying the quality of life you would like for yourself. I create a supportive environment that allows you the patient to talk openly without fear of judgment. By the time you leave therapy you will not only have solved the problem that brought you in, but you will take away a set of skills that will help you effectively cope with whatever challenges life may present in the future.

I work with adolescents and adults in the following: abuse / trauma (which can also include excessive criticism or shaming, or where one's needs were not met or boundaries were not respected), addictions, parenting, child behavioral issues, anxiety, depression , codependency, identity, self-esteem, domestic violence, and anger management.
"Freedom is what you do with what has been done to you," (Jean-Paul Sartre). We all have had things done to us. These things do not define us - the key is what we do with them afterward. I believe each and every person has what they need right inside of them; thus my job is not to fix or change, but to teach the skills to help you tap into that inner source. The answers you are looking for are available and can be found.

Depression , anxiety, low self-worth, and poor interpersonal relationships, are often symptoms of childhood trauma.
You don't really like to talk about your childhood or maybe you don't even remember a lot of it. You know parts were bad, the fights, addictions, mental illness, sexual, physical, and emotional abuse, maybe even the death of a loved one. You try to put it behind you but you struggle in your marriage and yell at the kids. Holidays are hard, and sometimes you wonder if it's even worth living. You overcompensate or try to be invisible, because that's how you learned to survive. You suffer from a sense of not being worthy or enough, but it doesn't have to be like that. Life can be good. You ARE worthy and you ARE enough.

Depression Therapists
Depressive disorders are characterized by persistent feelings of sadness and worthlessness and a lack of desire to engage in formerly pleasurable activities. Depression is not a passing blue mood, which almost everyone experiences from time to time, but a complex mind/body illness that interferes with everyday functioning. It not only darkens one's outlook, it is commonly marked by sleep problems and changes in energy levels and appetite. It alters the structure and function of nerve cells so that it disrupts the way the brain processes information and interprets experience.

Despite feelings of hopelessness and worthlessness, depression is a treatable condition. It can be treated with psychotherapy by depression therapists in Palmer. As with many illnesses, the earlier treatment begins, the more effective it can be and the greater the likelihood that recurrence can be prevented.

Psychotherapy addresses the thinking patterns that precipitate depression, and studies show that it prevents recurrence. Drug therapy is often helpful in relieving symptoms, such as severe anxiety, so that people can engage in meaningful psychotherapy.
