My areas of expertise include depression, anxiety, self-esteem issues, caregiving stress, relationship issues, loss and bereavement, life transitions, and trauma.
***NOT ACCEPTING NEW CLIENTS AT THIS TIME*** In a time of such uncertainty, it is more important than ever to connect, feel heard, and to tune into ourselves. I use a relational approach to therapy which considers the therapeutic relationship to be transformative and healing, a vehicle for better understanding our internal world. When given the space to talk things out authentically with someone who really listens, we learn to tune into ourselves so we can move forward in a more constructive way.

I believe that each of us already possesses the ability to live a happy and fulfilling life. With greater self-understanding, we can discover and break through barriers that hold us back, find new perspectives, and achieve new goals. I work with people who are experiencing specific challenges--such as trauma or relationship issues--as well as those who suffer from anxiety, depression, feel "stuck in a rut" or are simply interested in exploring new ways to find more fulfillment in their lives. Whatever your goal, we can work together to achieve balance and lasting change.

Shoreline TMS offers Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation: an FDA-approved, non-invasive outpatient medical procedure for patients suffering from medication-resistant depression. TMS works by delivering short, powerful bursts of magnetic energy to the area of the brain where mood is regulated. Rapid pulses work to stimulate the nerve cells that are not firing at full capacity in the depressed brain. There are minimal side effects associated with TMS. A patient may be a good candidate for TMS if they are still suffering from depression despite having tried multiple medications.

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 Guilford. 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.
