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.

Primarily, I see young adult females who are high functioning, and show mild to moderate anxiety and/or depression symptoms.
It is my primary goal as a therapist to help individuals establish personal and obtainable goals specific to their concerns, needs, and abilities. It is vital that in doing this, I am there as a guide and supportive figure only; their accomplishments will be of their own doing. The "game-changers" for my clients are the "AHA" moments; the moments they find themselves thinking about something differently from before. That moment can change a person, and it can change their destiny.

Deciding to seek psychological services can be a difficult step to make. Whether looking for therapy or an evaluation, the right clinician/client match is essential. As a psychologist, my goal is to respond to my clients with compassion, empathy, and in a non-judgmental way, as well as stay up-to-date with the most effective treatment interventions. Many of the people that I have successfully treated have struggled with low self-esteem, assertiveness difficulties, loss/grief, guilt, eating disorders, emotional eating, binge-eating, anxiety, panic, life transitions, divorce/separation, obsessive thinking, relationship struggles, "quarter life crisis," and depression .

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 Waterford. 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.
