Do you want to turn your life around? Do you hope to find a way out and end the pain you may be feeling now ? Are you going thru life now and thinking "I have to turn my life around". In my twenty years of experience, I have come to understand that sticking to the process of therapy is a courageous first step. When you are in pain, it is very hard to find the hope and motivation to stay the course. I know participating in therapy can help. I can help you reap these benefits. It requires committing to this process. Commitment is the key and I believe that helping you gain insight will give you the power to find your way out.

I also work with men and women in their 30s and 40s who may be wondering what's next for them in life, with adults who have ADHD and other "neuroatypical" conditions, and with people experiencing depression and/or anxiety.
Sometimes it helps just to talk to someone. Someone who can listen with empathy and without judgment. Someone who can see patterns you may not have been aware of, who can help you talk back to that negative voice in your head, and who can help you renew your hopes for yourself and the future. Someone like me. To all of you I say, Come, let's talk about it, and together we'll find a way through this messy business of life. You are not alone.

I specialize in working with folks who struggle with borderline personality disorder, depression , anxiety, substance abuse and co-occurring disorders.
Hi, my name is Kelsie. For many of us, the response to painful thoughts, emotions and life events is to check out, numb, avoid or shut down. To me, therapy work is not about learning to get rid of all the "bad stuff." It’s about learning how to show up and keep going DESPITE the "bad stuff." I combine a warm and accepting style with concrete skills to help you regulate your emotions, tolerate distress, identify values and goals that make life worth living and challenge thought patterns that get in the way. Above all, my approach is collaborative: we will decide together what balance of those tools will work best for you.

Is trauma getting in the way of your relationships and happiness? Untreated trauma, whether big or small, can leave us feeling depressed , stuck, isolated, and fearful. I am here to provide a safe and constant environment to support you in working through unresolved traumas that are at the core of your symptoms. I believe that my role as a therapist is to support you in connecting the dots, identifying realistic solutions, paying attention to the mind-body connection, and building on your already existing strengths and resources. I want to help you become present and reintegrated.

I work a great deal with individuals who have suffered early childhood trauma and who subsequently find themselves struggling with adult depression and/or anxiety.
As individuals, we are so unique. We all come from very distinct backgrounds and life experiences, both of which impact our decisions, choices, desires and fears. These considerations all play a role in the struggles and pain we face. Looking at these areas of our lives and trying to understand their influence can be overwhelming and scary. For this reason I strive to create a safe, warm and non-judgmental environment where, together, we can explore collaboratively. This time together will allow you the space needed to evaluate your experiences and understand how they affect you and your relationships.

When life isn't going well, or you feel stuck, anxious, depressed or angry; therapy may help you to move beyond patterns and circumstances that you would like to change. Together we can explore what is keeping you from living the life you want, having more fulfilling relationships or simply moving through life with ease and joy. Whether you are experiencing symptoms of anxiety, panic, fear, addiction, numbness, isolation or depression therapy can help in facilitating change. Those who have experienced traumatic experiences or childhood neglect or abuse can benefit from trauma informed therapy to help move beyond the past.

Are you tired of spending time obsessing, counting calories, weighing yourself, compulsively exercising, or comparing yourself to others?

I enjoy working with children, teens, and young adults who are coping with trauma, anxiety/ depression , chronic illness, identity issues, and/or relationship/familial difficulties.
I believe it takes an immense amount of courage to ask for help when you feel like you are struggling. Life can be unfair, relentless, scary, and exhausting at times. As a therapist, I believe that exploring the root of those negative feelings, thoughts, and/or events that happened to you can be the driving force for establishing insight and positive change in yourself and in your interpersonal relationships. I aim to create a safe, warm, and transparent space for you to feel comfortable, confident, and cared for in.

No matter what race, culture, gender or age, you can experience depression . Every individual experiences depression differently. Depression can be caused by the loss of loved one, transition from one environment to another, feeling stuck, a break up, or other losses or changes in one's life. No matter what has caused your depression , variety of treatments and resources are available to you. Depression can be a lonely place. A place where you are surrounded by your darkest and deepest thoughts. A place that feels isolated. A place that prevents you from moving forward, getting out of bed, and having a fulfilling life.

I have helped countless clients work through relationship issues, anxiety, depression , life transitions, career choices/changes, marital discord, and stagnation.
As humans, we are all blessed with a host of undesirable experiences: family dysfunction, trauma, relationship issues, and career struggles to name a few—often resulting in anxiety and depression , Sometimes it feels like we’re being pulled in all directions to help others and we forget to take care of ourselves. This further undermines our relationships, career goals, and takes a major toll on our mental and physical well-being. In therapy, I will help you identify and prioritize personal and professional aspirations and help you navigate the roadblocks that prevent you from achieving them.

If you are currently seeking a psychotherapist you are already headed in the right direction. One of the hardest steps is the first step. Whether you are struggling with self compassion, anxiety, depression , or lack of focus, I can help. If you have a passion or internal drive to be a creative person, I live a creative life and have been in the arts for many years. With that, I understand the challenges that go along with operating in that framework. If creative endeavors are not your focus I can work with that as well. Ultimately we are on a quest to find our purpose and to be fulfilled with our lives.

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 Sherman Oaks. 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.
