Living one's life with courage, insight and vitality is not always easy. Relationships can be difficult, disappointing or elusive. Families and careers can be demanding and exhausting.

Anxiety and Depression are the most common reasons people seek help. Life transitions such as divorce, custody issues, behavioral problems, are some of the other issues. Besides having over 20 years in private practice I have had many life experiences that provide insight and help me to encourage clients to feel safe expressing their feelings and talking about the problems that brought them in for therapy. I try to maintain an atmosphere that is welcoming and relaxing for my clients.

With stress, depression ,anger or trauma, I have had the experience of providing direction for you to gain mastery over what appears uncontrollable.
You will select me as your psychologist not because I simply listen- but because together we will change, create, and organize your true self. After 30 plus years of working with clients in psychotherapy, I continue to look for the unexpected, the surprises, and the unknown, about the important people in your life and most of all, renewal within you. It is exciting to define new directions in a career or a relationship. As an older parent, I still look for overcoming the challenges in seeing how we all grow. I have had training in schools, agencies, and hospitals.

By together tackling stress, anxiety, depression , you can become more carefree and excited about life.
One of the bravest things you can do is begin to understand your own story. Are you struggling just to get out of bed each morning? Life just feels so full of anxiety and worry, by the end of the day you are left overwhelmed and exhausted. Is every happy moment overshadowed by depression , leaving you feeling like you are missing out on all the important little things in life? I understand the feeling of hopelessness, that nothing will ever get better. If you or your loved one are struggling and on the verge of giving up, it's time for a real change. Happiness is possible, and I would love to illuminate your path to self-discovery.

In addition to working with survivors of interpersonal violence (including sexual, physical, and emotional abuse) I have extensive training and experience working with depression /mood disorders, anxiety, eating disorders, perinatal mental health, and substance use or abuse.
CURRENTLY NOT ACCEPTING REFERRALS- Life is filled with moments of great joy, profound sorrow, and everything in between; at times navigating the ups and downs can be challenging. Often people get stuck in familiar patterns that aren't productive. One of the benefits of therapy is having an objective, non-judgmental ally to assist you through the change process. Therapy is interactive and collaborative. As a therapist, my goal is to help my clients recognize and utilize the strengths they already possess to create the change they seek in their 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 Essex. 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.
