Our world has gone through tremendous changes in a very short time. We’ve been forced to adapt to a new way of living with changes in employment, online schooling, increased isolation and a reduction in enjoyable activities. Many people are experiencing anxiety, depression, increased conflicts in partner relationships and increased stress in parenting. These stressors also make it more difficult to cope with any other trauma past or present. You don’t have to go through this alone. I offer a safe, calm, compassionate space where you can express yourself freely without judgment. I approach counseling as partnering with my clients.

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 Rockford. 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.
