I treat adults and adolescents presenting with a range of concerns, including those suffering from depression, persistent depression, anxiety, addiction and those struggling with life transitions, shame, and relationship challenges.
You feel stuck. You may often find yourself feeling sad, angry, or irritable. Perhaps you aren’t sure what you’re feeling, but you know that something is wrong in your life. Maybe you’re not the person that you thought you’d become. Possibly fear and anxiety are holding you back. These feelings could be new, or so old that you cannot remember feeling differently. Regardless of how you got here, you are ready for change.

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 Columbia. 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.
