On the outside it seems like you have everything together, but inside you feel unhappy and stuck. Instead of thriving, you are overwhelmed and exhausted. Part of you feels like you just can't manage it all. You spend your days feeling sad, irritated, and afraid. You wonder if you have the ability to heal and move through the obstacles in your way. Maybe you've experienced a trauma and you feel like you can't move forward in your relationships.

Psychotherapy can be an opportunity for healing and transformation. When life seems to be stagnant, painful or overwhelming, a therapist can offer solace, guidance and a container for the psychological process. I have spent several years accompanying others on the journey through healing and have a unique style of working with people. I seek to offer a non-judgmental place to work through whatever is causing pain in the life of the clients I treat. I believe each person has the courage and ability to overcome what holds them back and to embrace the person they were always meant to be.

Hello, my legal name is Joseph but you can call me Tommy. My work as a therapist is mostly informed by Attachment Theory and I currently work with individuals ranging from young adults to seniors. As human beings, we are meant to seek connection with others. Connection with a compassionate, caring, and knowledgeable therapist is one of the best ways to develop a more secure sense of attachment to the world around you. This connection can lead to the positive, long-term change you are seeking.

I work primarily with children, teens, and adults who have suffered traumatic events. I provide an outlet without judgement, helping clients work through unresolved feelings about past childhood trauma, family conflict, and broken relationships, which can cause significant distress, affecting other parts of their lives. I will help you break away from anything that is holding you back from being the person you truly desire to be. My style is eclectic, supporting individual needs, unlocking and developing each person's potential. With children and teens, I use Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy to assist clients in overcoming negative effects of the traumatic experience.

There are many paths up the mountain. I believe that each individual is as unique as the pathway they select in life. On every path there are difficult challenges that bring questions. Why do I feel this way? What am I missing? Is what I'm feeling a mental illness? Is my brain functioning properly? Do I need professional help?

Life sure can have its' ups and downs, this is true for all of us! Life can also be exciting and fun, as well as frustrating and painful. Life challenges can make us feel stuck, emotionally drained, ineffectual, and even hopeless. We all have strengths but sometimes we lose sight of them and feel lost, maybe alone. Therapy and the therapeutic relationship can support you in navigating an array of obstacles, finding clarity, opening up new possibilities, and moving toward a more fulfilling and balanced 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. 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.
