Recognizing the need to seek therapy is both courageous and difficult. Working with a therapist who is a good "fit" is integral. I enjoy working with clients who are willing to do the work necessary to reap the benefits. I work with people who present with relationship difficulties, anxiety, depression, stress, trauma and other daily life issues. I have worked extensively with individuals and families in crisis. I work collaboratively with the client to establish ways to cope with their difficulties in a warm, empathic environment.

Through child psychotherapy and working in conjunction with parents, I have helped children and adolescents develop the skills needed to cope with depression, anxiety, and life's challenges and improve their ability to navigate the complicated years of physical, emotional, academic, and social development.
Maybe you've noticed that it's difficult to get up in the morning or that you are less interested in getting together with family and friends. Perhaps you've noticed destructive patterns in your relationships or that you keep "shooting yourself in the foot" at work. Conversations in therapy deepen understanding of distress and unproductive patterns of behavior. This new understanding and the tools you and I develop together can decrease distress and increase satisfaction with life.

Sometimes even positive life changes, such as going to college/grad school, having a baby/returning to work as a mom, getting married, new relationships, or relocating for a new job can create stress and distress. These difficulties can sometimes surprise you and leave you feeling guilty, unsure, and thinking you are the only one who is struggling to adjust.

I do believe each person and family has unique resources to activate healing processes. Brief Therapy requires a highly collaborative approach between therapist and clients, and focuses on practical solutions and clear communication. Brief Therapy offers a maximum of 10 sessions but usually don't need that many to promote change in the problem that is presented. I work with individuals, couples and families with a variety of problems: marital conflict and affairs, depression and anxiety, children and adolescent problems, addiction, eating disorders, stress and work related problems. I also provide online-therapy services.

I provide psychotherapy for those experiencing life transitions, loss, stress, relationship issues, low self-esteem, ACOA issues, anxiety, and depression. I help my clients to recognize and modify negative thinking and behavior patterns, to experience personal growth and greater self-awareness, and to attain positive self-regard and well-being. Change is difficult. Every time we transition, we experience some level of loss. Even those life events which society labels "joyful" are often filled with stress and anxiety. If you are feeling stuck, give me a call so we can talk about it. Karen G. Jacobs, ACSW, LCSW-C

Hello and welcome! Sometimes our lives are stable; however, there are times where we are suddenly confronted with traumatic experiences or losses, such as health problems (dx. of cancer or terminal illnesses), the death of a loved one, separation of the family, loss of work, problems with our children, or academic struggles. These situations can make us feel unsure of our own capacities and emotional strengths which can lead to increased vulnerability, and can cause us to start experiencing high levels of depression and anxiety, or other emotional pain/fears.

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 Rockville. 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.
