You’re stressed, on edge and maybe you’re even having trouble sleeping. Your mind is racing and you’re overwhelmed. You just want things to get better -- and now. Maybe you've even tried therapy before, but never with any lasting changes. Could this time be any different? Are you ready to find a new way? What would it be like if you could leave all that stress and anxiety behind? What would it be like to feel peace and contentment - on a regular basis?

I am passionate about supporting women who are experiencing unexpected disappointments and difficult life changes. They are feeling overwhelmed by life after high school or college, or need support with the challenges of motherhood, or are concerned about relationship difficulties, or the pain of a heartbreak that just won't heal. Some of the women I support share that they find comfort with extra food, or have worries and insecurities about their weight and body image. If you can relate, please know that you are not alone. If you are ready to break free, I am here.

My counseling philosophy is based on the empathic understanding of the individual's circumstances and challenges impacting their functioning in life. I believe that insight, working in the “here and now,” addressing short and long-term goals, and acquiring healthy coping mechanisms are crucial to overcome emotional distress and acquire emotional growth. My philosophy as a therapist is that the clients are the EXPERTS and that the therapist is the one that follows the clients’ lead helping them to understand and solve in a healthy way their inner struggles and conflicts.

Life can be a struggle because of our internal and interpersonal difficulties. It can also feel daunting to reach out to another for help. The courage it takes to reach out is already the change process in motion in your life. My approach focuses not simply on the shame, guilt, anxieties, doubt and traumas that bring you to psychotherapy, but what is right and where is the glimmer of change in your struggles and traumas. I address traumatic experience, grief, addiction, emotional disturbances, life adjustments, and interpersonal stressors. I specialize in addiction recovery, PTSD and emotional disturbances, and personal growth.

As children grow and mature, they face a wide variety of developmental challenges. Parents can begin to wonder, "Is this behavior normal?" or "Do we need help?" Oftentimes, the answer is yes to both questions. With over fifteen years of experience in providing counseling services to children; I have been able to help them and their parents navigate a wide array of issues. Because parents are the most important people in any child's life, I strongly emphasize family involvement in the counseling process while protecting the client's confidentiality.

As a fellow parent, I understand that there is no greater pleasure than to see your child happy and healthy. But excessive worrying, relentlessly demanding OCD rituals, the fear of vomiting, social anxiety, and self-harming behaviors like hair pulling and skin picking can rip away the joy of childhood and bring anguish to the family. I am a warm, compassionate, and very active cognitive-behavioral therapist with many years of success in helping children and teens recover from these challenges. I work as a team with parents, including them in at least part of every session.

I believe that the power of therapy comes through the understanding of how self defeating patterns of behavior interfere with our ability to have a happy and productive life. I believe that focusing and building on our strengths will enhance our functioning. Examining our behavior is critical to developing healthy options for ourselves and in our relationships. Through an open and respectful process we will examine the areas in your life that have interfered with your ability to make positive, forward thinking choices. As you develop different coping strategies the hope of change will support healing and growth.

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.
