I have had the honor of working with families, couples, adolescents, children, and individual adults over the past nine years. I offer support for couples and families seeking to reduce conflict and to increase relational intimacy through improved trust and communication, as well as helping parents build positive parenting/co-parenting skills. My work also includes assisting individuals who are struggling with anxiety, depression, problematic behaviors, and negative relationship patterns. I also offer therapy from a Christian framework, if so requested. I believe that empathy and respect for others is profoundly important and feel honored to walk alongside people as they seek emotional healing.

I'm overwhelmed by the stressors of life, and they seemed to have taken over my spirit, energy and my relationships. I feel anxious, depressed, disconnected and most of all confused. I want to feel good again, I want the love of my life to see me again, I want to have confidence in myself, my marriage and most of all I want to live again.

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 Ventura. 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.
