I see a variety of clients experiencing trauma, PTSD, anxiety, depression, relationship issues, life transitions and grief.
The world offers many challenges, many responsibilities, sometimes it can feel overwhelming. I think of Life as an ocean, and our emotions, experiences and processes as waves. Sometimes the tide laps our toes, and we can breathe deeply, but other times the waves are so tumultuous it feels like we could be swallowed up. Big waves are much easier to face with support, someone who offers presence, bearing witness to our pain. Sometimes we simply need an extra hand for steadiness to help us get back up. It can feel difficult to ask for help, and to trust another. The journey is yours, and I am honored to support you on that journey.

I want to know what brings a smile to your face as you realize that your life is waiting to be lived. Smiles might seem a remote option at this time, or even completely forgotten. You might be in pain and you hope for change. You might even think that there is something wrong with you. There is a part in you which knows the task at hand and exactly why it is here. It knows how to be alive and how to share that being with others. I am curious about that part. I work with adults, individuals and couples.

I practice holistic psychotherapy; I see each individual as a whole system (body, heart and mind) existing in a social/cultural context. I believe everything is interconnected and each piece is important. Yet we often live in a trance of disconnection; from ourselves, each other, and the planet. When we deny the interrelatedness of all things we suffer and struggle. The mind dominates the body, the body betrays the mind, the mind punishes the body, the body exhausts the mind, and so on. Healing involves bringing these inner wars to a truce.

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 Nevada City. 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.
