When who you are on the inside doesn't match who you are on the outside, dissatisfaction, irritability, depression and/or anxiety can be the result.
You want more out of life. Maybe you want to be more happy or less anxious or maybe you want a better quality of life or to grow in a new direction. It can be confusing because your life is not miserable but it just isn't what you hoped for. You gave and you continue to give but you're just not feeling the joy. Its starting to get you down and you find yourself escaping to Facebook and Instagram or getting lost in another Netflix series because you're bored or maybe it helps you mange the anxiety that pushes into your throat when you actually sit and think about where you are, how you got here and where you are going (or not going).

I help individuals address feelings of depression, anxiety, posttraumatic stress, secondary traumatic stress, grief, loss, overwhelm and burnout.
Sometimes we all need to be heard. We need someone to hold space for us so that we can share our experiences and process our hurt and losses. Parents, caregivers and those in helping professions spend a great deal of their time holding space for others. Doing this work can sometimes leave a person feeling empty, tired, and unappreciated. Helping, caregiving and parenting often trigger intense feelings related to past difficulties. The role of a parent, caregiver and/or helper can expose one to new trauma that needs and deserves to be addressed. You deserve to be witnessed and heard the way you witness, hear and honor others.

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 Traverse 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.
