Teens and young adults with anxiety tend to suffer a great deal. They often feel out of control, worry a lot, and live in constant fear. Rapid heartbeat, racing thoughts, sleepless nights, irritability, difficulty concentrating are just a few symptoms of anxiety. It can often hit out of the blue making the person feel like something awful is about to happen. Anxiety and depression can put a strain on relationships, cause job difficulties, interfere with school functioning, and make a person's self-esteem decrease. Is the current pandemic causing your anxiety to increase?

I work with clients on issues such as depression, anxiety, ADHD, gender and sexual identity, and navigating systems of privilege and oppression.
Hi, my name is Liz, and I'm a Nationally Certified Counselor working towards full LPCMH licensure. Therapy can be a life-changing experience, but admitting you need help can be difficult! Our struggles are often blamed on our own individual choices, without looking at factors outside our control. We may come from families where our mental health was ignored. We may be part of a marginalized group that faces systemic oppression. We may be neurodivergent and living in a world not designed for us, or have a genetic predisposition towards certain disorders.

Life’s challenges can allow one to believe that their situations are unique to them. Mental illness, addiction, stress, grief, and relationship struggles touch the lives of individuals on a daily basis. As women, we tend to believe that we can carry the weight of the world, but meanwhile, we're struggling on the inside.

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 Newark. 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.
