My patients have difficulties with depression , anxiety, self doubt, and interpersonal relationships.
Authentic change happens from the inside out. It can't be veneered onto one's surface. Painful life experiences create a complex web inside that shapes a person's world. This web can limit one's ability to find joy and meaning in life. Psychotherapy offers a way to access deep emotional experience. As therapy proceeds connections will start to appear between past & current life experience. Problematic internal patterns will become visible and open to reevaluation and change. As internal stress decreases, clarity, joy and meaning will have the chance to emerge.

Together we work to develop a greater understanding of the many facets within them: the desires they have to expand themselves and their lives, and the parts where they get stuck and held back by experiences such as depression , anxiety, insecurity, trauma and pain.
It can be hard to move forward on your own. Many of the people I work with are young professionals who are unsatisfied or struggling in important areas of their lives. They are challenged by unfulfilling relationships with co-workers, romantic partners, dating, friends, or family members. Some struggle with their career and creative pursuits, or with major life decisions. The difficulties they face tend to feel familiar; patterns they have not yet been able to fully understand or find their way out of on their own.

I work with adults and couples of all ages wanting a safe and confidential environment, with an experienced therapist. We all want to feel happy, connected to people we love and/or connected to the work we do. These basic parts of life can bring tremendous fulfillment, but if not actualized, can evoke loneliness, depression , anxiety, anger or resentment. Sometimes behaviors intended to be helpful, create even more problems, and suffering. I believe in my work and my clients desire to move out of anxiety or suffering, and into a more satisfying and fulfilling life.

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 Berkeley. 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.
