One of the most meaningful things you can do is to learn to treat yourself with kindness and compassion. It may seem simple, but bad relationships, traumatic experiences, and difficult life transitions have a way of changing how we think and feel about ourselves - usually for the worse. We too often find ourselves lost in the emotional pain, feeling unfulfilled in our lives and gradually losing hope that things can get better. But it doesn’t have to be that way! I want to help you feel connected with yourself again. To create those healthy boundaries. To feel unburdened from the depression/anxiety/anger. To heal. To grow.

I offer therapy for adults and couples experiencing relationship issues, anxiety, stress, depression, work/life balance, and major life changes.
**Now accepting new clients** When clients first come to therapy, they describe feeling overwhelmed and pulled in so many directions. The pressure they feel to "have it all together" gets in the way of living the life they truly want. Whether it’s with family and friends, spouses/partners, or with coworkers — they feel responsible to take care of everyone else except for themselves. While working with me, clients are better able to prioritize their own well-being, strengthen their relationships, and find greater day to day balance.

I have worked with a broad range of issues, with extensive background in eating disorders, issues of adolescence and young adulthood, life transitions, depression, anxiety problems, low self-esteem, and Asperger's Disorder (including relationship issues).
I emphasize a collaborative approach to therapy--I bring 24 years of clinical experience, as well as enthusiasm, hope, and a dose of humor, and ask only that you bring an openness to change. Together, we identify specific life goals and generate plans to achieve them. Ultimately, you will come to understand that you make perfect sense; you may just not have been able to use this self-awareness to make the most productive decisions. My strong suit is quickly identifying underlying problems and patterns, as well as personal strengths and resources, and from there we chart your personal path.

Mindful Medication Management(tm) after 25 years of clinical experience my fundamental belief is this that true healing begins with mindfulness. My practice is a marriage of the science of western medicine and the art of eastern healing philosophies. Medications help control symptoms while mindfulness helps uncover root causes of disease. Mindful Medication Management means I provide needed prescriptions for anxiety, depression, cognitive impairment/dementia, and sleep disorders while using an integrative approach to help uncover possible causes such as nutritional deficiencies, hormone imbalances, or other stressors overlapping symptoms. Together we design strategies that may help gradually reduce dosages or the number of medications you take.

Mental health is not just addressing illnesses such as anxiety and depression, but an arena for promoting our resiliency in managing stress, and pursuing relationships, career goals, and our overall life satisfaction. I believe that through psychotherapy we can heal old wounds, learn to maximize our abilities, and accept and cope with our limitations in order to minimize their interference in our pursuit of our life's goals. We are complex emotional systems of inherited predispositions and vulnerabilities, as well as a multitude of learned psychological attitudes and beliefs. Ultimately, each of us uses these tools to cope with life's demands and stresses.

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 Ellicott City. 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.
