My areas of expertise are treating depression , anxiety, grief and loss and trauma (PTSD).
We are born into mystery and we are on a spiritual quest to know ourselves more fully, to discover our life's purpose and to find our personal power. My therapeutic approach involves accompanying my clients on a journey of self-discovery and self-mastery. For, as Carlos Castaneda wrote, "We either make ourselves miserable or we make ourselves strong...the amount of work is the same." Ultimately, my goal is to be a mirror that reflects back to you your own innate goodness, strength and wisdom. We repeat what we don't repair. So, my job is to be a witness to your process of awakening the healer that's already present within you.

My ideal client is someone who is really ready to do some at times difficult, yet transformative work. I specialize in the treatment of anxiety, depression , ADHD and the common co-occurance of these disorders - although I tend to treat symptoms more than I focus on diagnosis. I use the most up-to-date and most-effective scientific methods for treatment. However, I am by no means a dry and robotic person as this last sentence might suggest! In addition to skill-building, I further help my clients dig deep and learn more about themselves through investigative conversations with the hope of minimizing or even eliminating symptoms.

I work with a wide range of clients from a variety of cultural backgrounds in person and remotely. Clients learn to reduce stress and work with their feelings in ways that lead to personal growth and development of effective interpersonal skills. Feelings that cause stress, anxiety, depression , excessive self-criticism, perfectionism and emotional flooding are processed so that these problem feelings can lead to growth, greater empathy for self and others as well as greater kindness towards others in their life. Additionally, clients who employ detachment as a means of self-protection develop emotional awareness and intelligence.

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 Downtown, Washington. 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.
