EMDR therapy has been proven to help people recover from trauma and other distressing life experiences including PTSD, anxiety, depression, and panic disorders.
Have you found yourself dealing with experiences, thoughts, or emotions that feel out of control or overwhelming? Life is messy on this side of Heaven and you do not have to go through it alone. I believe we were created to be in connection with other people but often our experiences and unhealthy relationships have made that difficult. The support and connection from a skilled therapist can be invaluable when you find yourself in those broken moments. It is my hope that for at least one hour each week, you can come, sip on some coffee or tea and not feel like you have to fix everything on your own.

Whether struggling with addiction issues, codependency, grief, divorce, spirituality, anxiety, depression, or life transitions, I can help.
Whether going through life challenges, relationship struggles, or just finding yourself "stuck," one of the best things to help is to invest in yourself. Would you be willing to let someone come alongside you who is trained to listen more deeply, look at things that you may or may not have considered, and provide a safe place to be brave? Making life changes can be hard, difficult, and challenging but you do not have to go at it alone. Let someone come alongside you who wants nothing more for you than your absolute best!

My primary area of interest and training is working with children under the age of 10 dealing with issues of anxiety, depression, trauma, abuse, autism, developmental delay, divorce, grief, medical issues, behavioral problems, and more. I believe children have limitless potential for growth and they have an innate capacity for resiliency.

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 Tupelo. 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.
