My specialties include working with depression , anxiety, and relationship issues, as well as issues surrounding marriage and divorce.
I've worked successfully with adults and adolescents for 20+ years. Many therapists are seasoned and technically sound, but to many clients, something still feels lacking. I receive repeated feedback regarding clients' appreciation of my nonjudgemental support and guidance, my ability to understand the great shame people feel about their relationships and lives. I have a knack for forming trusting relationships with teens, allowing them to experience open communication, which, over time, tends to replicate itself within the family system. I can help you with feelings of insecurity, anxiety, depression . I understand addiction issues and treatment strategies that work.

Beyond knowing a therapist has degrees and a license a list of credentials do not matter much in your choosing. Therapy is more art than science. Nor may you be impressed with a long series of my professional accomplishments. What you want to know is: Can I stop the pain? Can I make your depression and anxiety go away? Can I fix your career or relationship problem? The answer is: No, I cannot. But together we can. If you will bring the motivation and some willingness to trust I will bring knowledge and the ability to shift things. And perhaps, with the help of an unseen grace, together we can heal the hurt and find a solution.

Fortunately, professional counseling and psychotherapy can help you develop ways of moving forward through the places where you feel stuck. The empathic, and non-judgmental therapeutic relationship I offer can help you discover, or rediscover, your own strengths to heal, thrive, and create the relationships and life you desire.

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 Walnut Creek. 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.
