I have extensive experience working with adults and older adults who are working through depression and anxiety, often related to life transitions, as well as clients who are struggling with anger management, relational issues, mood disorders, PTSD, loss, and grief.
As human beings, our lived experiences are often stressful, anxiety producing, and at times traumatic. As a psychotherapist who has been practicing for 20 years, my goal is to create nurturing environments where individuals can process thoughts and feelings, gain new insights, and work to develop more productive ways of coping with their lives and relationships. I aim to develop a secure therapeutic alliance with my clients, based on trust, a sense of safety, and respect.

I welcome the opportunity to work with adolescents and adults at various stages of the human-life-cycle. I often work with people who feel stifled by feelings of anxiety and panic, depleted by feelings of depression or emptiness, or reactive and out-of-control due to feelings of rage. While these powerful feelings can be overwhelming and disruptive, they are usually signs that something essential to our vitality, body, or relationships needs to be sensitively attended to and addressed. I provide a welcoming and confidential environment where a safe space is co-created and trust can develop over time.

Picture unburdening yourself of the weight you carry (anxiety, depression, self-doubt) in a healthy way.
When worry and self-doubt feel like a constant companion it may be difficult to focus on work, family, relationships. When you find yourself avoiding things such as conversations, that tennis practice or game, or that outing with friends, that feeling of uneasiness increases. You now fear the impact on your relationships, with colleagues, friends and loved ones as well as on your future goals. Now imagine learning and utilizing skills that allow you to overcome the stressors in your life while developing and nurturing your relationships.

Sometimes you do everything you're supposed to do and things go right. Sometimes you do everything you're not supposed to do and everything goes right. But what happens when almost nothing goes right? It's disheartening, disorienting, and undermines confidence. What can follow is anxiety (fear and threat come with disorientation), depression (apathy and hopelessness come with being ineffective). You may feel the world is conspiring against you. Often self-deprecation seeps in. You beat yourself up as you feel you've let yourself down, a self-betrayal informing you that you must be defective and inadequate.

Many things can trigger a call to a therapist: Overwhelming anxiety, persistent feelings of depression, unfulfilling or problematic relationships at home or at work, or sudden changes in life circumstances (health, financial, or interpersonal). Talking to a therapist in a supportive environment can be very helpful. Therapy helps you figure out what you want to get out of life, identify what gets in your way, and work out new ways of approaching your goals. When you come in regularly to talk, exploring patterns and identifying factors that interfere with achieving goals, your life tends to improve.

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 07039. 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.
