If you are looking for a therapist who specializes in depression, anxiety, life changes, and helping people get over bad things that have happened to them in the past, you have found the right therapist.
"I don't know what's wrong with me, but I don't feel like myself." Many things can happen in our lives that cause us to feel, "off," or not like we used to be. We may think that we aren't enjoying life as much as we used to, we may find that we are too caught up in our own head to enjoy things we used to enjoy. If you are feeling sad, overwhelmed, anxious, worried, nervous, or having a hard time dealing with changes, therapy can help. Most of us want a life worth living: good relationships with ourselves and others, happiness, and motivation to do things that we want to do. If you're ready to make some changes and start feeling better, call me for a free ten minute consultation to see how I can help you get back on track to feeling better.

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 Baton Rouge. 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.
