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.

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 East Lyme. 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.
