I believe that anyone who wants to make a change in their life can do it. My style is laid back, with an emphasis on listening and getting to know the client on their own terms, and assisting them with self expression when needed. My orientation is self psychological and relational. For some issues, I find that a more structured, directed approach is helpful. I have recently incorporated DBT skills groups into my practice.

I have been in private practice for 13 years in Columbia Maryland, and provide individual, couple and group psychotherapy to adults and adolescents. My personal philosophy has always been to be of service to others. I have created a process to bring in to conscious awareness patterns of limiting beliefs and blockages in a place where healing and personal growth can flourish in an environment that is safe, confidential and free of judgement. The journey to the authentic self is one that requires courage, determination, self-reflection and unconditional love of yourselves.

Difficult feelings can be a doorway for personal growth. Living in modern society with it's many stressors, it is easy to lose connection with what gives us fulfillment. Relationships may fall apart, anxiety may plague us more hours than not, or we may just feel " stuck" and not living up to our full potential. Therapy can help. Although taking the first step to enter therapy can be anxiety provoking, the inner rewards of the experience can be well worth it.

Everyone experiences loneliness, frustration, anger and discouragement at times - these are normal human emotions. However, when you feel these negative emotions more than occasionally you can spiral downward and your life can feel like it’s “out of control”. You may have been able to work through difficult situations in the past but, everyone needs help at some point. You are already taking the first step by considering therapy which takes some courage in itself. Arranging a free, confidential phone call to discuss your issue is the next step.

I use a brief therapy approach. I enjoy working with relationship issues in the family, the workplace, or in your social life. Sometimes couples are not ready to come in together. One partner may come in to work on underlying issues prior to couples therapy. One partner can also make change in patterns alone. I also work with individuals who are facing decisions regarding marriage, divorce, children, work or advanced education. I communicate with clients in a straightforward and open way. Symptoms often reflect longer-standing methods of coping with stress and people, which can be changed, often quickly.

It's easy to feel like you should be happy. But when doubts about your strength and value come creeping in, anyone can feel like they don't measure up. Family, relationships, trauma, embarrassments, anything big or small can hurt, under the wrong circumstances. Therapy isn't about making things perfect, it's about feeling calm and confident in yourself, even when things feel broken. Loving yourself might seem like a huge, impossible goal, but I believe that it is the best goal you can ever set.

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.
