If you are struggling with depression, anxiety, social issues/relationships, life transitions, work difficulties or substance abuse, we will work as a team to resolve them.
If you are searching for a therapist, that probably means that something is not working for you in your life right now. My goal is to provide a safe, warm environment for you to explore all of the reasons that you made the decision to seek help, and then to assist you in formulating your own goals. After conducting a thorough assessment, I will be a thoughtful listener, and also an active participant in the subsequent exploration. While therapy can be challenging, I work hard to make you feel understood, and to help generate potential solutions.

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 Springfield. 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.
