My approach to therapy is first to fully understand your difficulties and then work with you to find the best ways to make changes that promote growth and personal fulfillment. I believe that it is crucial for you to feel that therapy is a safe space where together we can explore, examine, and be curious about your experiences and your relationships with other people. In my years of practicing, I have found that many distressing symptoms (such as anxiety and depression) often disappear when people have the opportunity to look closely at their relationships with others.

I understand how hard it is to sort through a list of names to find someone with whom you are comfortable talking. Clients often tell me that they felt at ease in our first phone contact. I love what I do; helping individuals and families understand and learn healthy ways to cope with issues like depression, anxiety, troubled relationships, & loss, and to make lasting changes in their personal lives. So many people feel overwhelmed and don't know where or how to start and it can be as simple as calling to set up the first appointment.

With a special interest in anxiety and depression spectrum disorders, I help clients explore how environmental factors (family, gender roles, work, ethnicity, economic situation, etc.) shape our adaptive and maladaptive coping mechanisms and patterns of response. Instead of focusing on "pathology" I explore clients' strengths and skills they already have to effect positive changes in their functioning and sense of well-being.

'Make not your thoughts your prisons' (Shakespeare). Anxiety, depression and relationship difficulties often get in the way of being at our best. Problems concerning anger, assertiveness, sexuality, spirituality and finding one's way in life are also more frequent than many realize. To be unshackled from these limiting psychological factors is to be quickened to growth and awakened to live out one's unique idiom. This results in more joyful aliveness, inspiration, and peace -- magnifying the difference you make in your life and in the world.

I work with adults who want to change patterns of thinking, acting, and feeling contributing to depression, anxiety, and dissatisfaction in daily life.
My approach to therapy is individualized and conversational, aimed at developing a respectful atmosphere in which troubling feelings, thoughts, and actions can be shared, reconsidered, and understood from a new perspective, hopefully with a sense of expanded choice, options, and decisions. Whether and how to change oneself can be explored from a pragmatic, step-by-step framework to a more abstract and emotional level. Usually both emotion and action come into play in any attempt to improve the quality of one's life and depend in part upon a personal connection between my client and myself that encourages effort and hopefulness.

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 Hockessin. 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.
