My experience has been working with dually diagnosed individuals, substance use disorders, trauma and stressors, grief, adjustment disorders, personality disorders, anxiety, depression, and life altering problems.
Nothing has the ability to stop life and wear you out more than when you are not able to get back on your feet or continue to push past the pain. At some point we all break. Have you pushed so hard and you just can’t get back to the old you? Or maybe the old you is not who you want to envision for your future. As a licensed professional counselor and licensed clinical addictions specialist, I have been a witness to some of life’s most precious moments and also some of life’s most challenging circumstances. My goal and desire is to help others navigate through their world and to find answers to some of life’s most difficult questions

It has been an honor to work side by side with and guide clients through challenges that seem impossible to overcome, including depression, anxiety, grief, sexual, physical and emotional abuse, substance use and unhealthy family dynamics.
Life can often be difficult causing individuals to feel lonely and overwhelmed. Many of my clients begin therapy because they are struggling with an emotional void and they are wondering how to live their best life. My therapeutic style is warm, non-judgmental, strength based and solution focused. The strong therapeutic relationship I work to cultivate is often the catalyst for my clients to become more self aware, insightful and in control of their 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 Monroe. 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.
