By using CBT/DBT and trauma informed care, clients address negative cognitive, emotional and behavioral patterns; gain skills to accept themselves, manage emotions, feel safe, implement long term coping strategies for fear, depression, anxiety, guilt, shame, substance use, impulsivity, conflict, irritability, persistent worry, depression, and trauma. I use trauma informed care to help with dissociation, trigger response and hypervigilance that cause unhealthy functioning, expecting catastrophic outcomes and more. I use CBT to teach, find and replace maladaptive thoughts that cause low mood and undesired behaviors.

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.

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.
