You may be searching for a therapist right now wondering if psychotherapy will really make a difference. I understand it can be hard to take the first step, to trust that you will be understood and that change is possible. Maybe your best efforts at shaking depression or avoiding getting into painful repetitive conflicts at work or at home haven't succeeded in the way you hoped. Or maybe you feel lonely or anxious or sad and don't know why. Perhaps an unexpected life event has thrown you off your feet.

My specialties include working with clients struggling with eating issues and disorders, body image problems, depression, anxiety, relationship issues, divorce, trauma, loss and difficult life transitions.
Entering therapy shows motivation to heal and grow often at a time when one feels most vulnerable. My approach to those seeking help through my practice is one of warmth and respect. I try to create an environment where clients feel free to discuss any problem. In my view the positive connection between therapist and client is essential to success.

The challenges, difficulties, or traumas we encounter in life can make us feel anxious, depressed, vulnerable, or even overwhelmed. Psychotherapy begins with finding someone you can trust, not only to lend a compassionate ear, but also where you can reflect and discuss openly your thoughts, feelings, and actions. I believe in working collaboratively, interactively, and respectfully to create a safe space. By exploring how your ways of coping may have developed and what they may serve, we can help you discover more varied ways of responding to life's struggles, enabling you to feel more hopeful and empowered.

“I once heard a child who was afraid of the darkness call out: "Auntie, talk to me, I’m frightened.’ ‘But what good will that do? You can’t see me;’ to which the child replied: ‘If someone talks, it gets lighter.”(Sigmund Freud) I believe that through talk therapy, we can overcome whatever lies at the root of the problem. Together, we will try to better understand what has brought you to the consulting room, whether that be relationship problems, social anxiety, depression, trauma, self doubt or a specific issue you would like to address.

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 Brookline. 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.
