Perhaps you've been recently diagnosed with a long term illness or you've had symptoms for so long you don’t recognize yourself anymore. You know these health struggles are somehow behind your depressed and anxious feelings, and you feel alone…like no one understands. Right now, you may have more questions than answers, but one thing you know for sure is that you’d do anything to get your life back. You grieve for the person you used to be and find it hard to imagine yourself living a worthwhile life with this illness trying to drag you down every chance it gets.

Traumatic events or issues with family, relationship and work can lead to depression , chronic anxiety, grief and PTSD. Resultantly, the quality of life deteriorates. Psychotherapy (counseling) enables you to explore your cognitive and emotional sides. It involves connecting your past wounds and present emotions. Psychodynamic therapy enables you to go beyond managing your present emotions and go to the source. I have explored and had many diversified experiences in Spirituality which is important in terms of your present and past experiences. My holistic orientation includes heed to nutrition in all matters related to the MIND-BODY-SPIRIT connection.

I believe that each person is an expert in their experience and my role as a professional is to help you navigate through your issues. I understand that seeking help isn't always easy. My aim is to make sure you feel safe and comfortable. A therapy session to me should feel like a conversation not an interrogation; there's a flow, a direction, there may even be a few pauses but ultimately my goal is for you to feel validated, understood and equipped to manage life's challenges.

I specialize in areas such as anxiety, depression , grief, trauma & substance abuse.
I believe that authenticity is the gateway to the soul. When one needs help, it is often times difficult to become completely vulnerable enough to disclose to others and accept what life may throw at us. When we learn to expose ourselves wholeheartedly with someone we trust, I believe this is where true connection is established.

Layers of grief, complicated family history, a genetic predisposition to mental illness, a traumatic experience, stressful changes -- or a combination of these things -- can be very difficult to manage or recover from by yourself. A seemingly unendurable situation or relationship can be overwhelming without support. If you've done all you know to do and you're still feeling stuck, I can help. I'd like to partner with you to find the clarity, wisdom, strength, comfort and supports you need to feel better about yourself and your relationships -- and to enjoy your life more.

This includes, but is not limited to, anxiety, depression , substance use, relationship issues, and life transitions.
I believe that every person has the strengths and skills within themselves to create a positive change within their life. My goal is to create a purposeful, safe space where you feel comfortable to explore your inner self, experience growth, and feel supported. I also hope to create a non-judgmental, confidential space where you feel comfortable being vulnerable. Vulnerability can oftentimes feel uncomfortable, but with this uncomfortableness comes growth.

These approaches are suitable for addressing anxiety, depression , trauma, life transition and cultural and relationship or parental concerns.
For over 26 years I have been working with people seeking improvements in their personal lives or relationships. We live in a very divisive world and I welcome individuals, couples or families from all backgrounds. My approach is “strength-based,” which means that I look for client competencies and resources, and try to avoid pathologizing people because of their problems, past or diagnoses. How often and how long the therapy will last depends on client goals and treatment needs and will be mutually agreed upon. The atmosphere in my office is relaxed and warm, and clients are always treated with dignity and respect.

Many clients I see come in after suffering significantly from riding the highs and lows of intense emotional ups and downs and are in search of learning new coping skills, or strengthening existing ones. Some of these folks suffer from self-harming behaviors, suicidality, addiction, eating disorders, OCD, PTSD, or anxiety and depression . The common thread among them, however, is the desire to not only more skillfully regulate their emotions, but to ultimately build a life that they want to live, not just one that they simply are trying to endure.

Trauma comes in many ways and brings with it many difficult symptoms. Fear, worry, sadness, and a feeling that you can't cope are just a few. Others don't always understand you or know how to help. This is especially true for parents who want to help their children navigate traumatic experiences but feel helpless to know where to start. There is nothing more frightening than having a child or teen who is struggling with anxiety, depression , and/or suicidal thoughts. Teenagers often feel unheard and parents can feel helpless.

My ideal client is one who is an adolescent to young adult range. After working with this population for 15 years, I have seen a need for extended support outside of the school counseling realm. This is where many young people start seeking support and identify their needs. Sometimes school counseling cannot provide the time and attention needed to address the issue. The issues vary from depression , anxiety, lack of coping skills, self harm and other manifestations of an unresolved issue. If individuals work on addressing these concerns earlier rather than later, this leads to more success when dealing with life's struggles.

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 Birmingham. 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.
