I believe that as humans we all experience suffering, and sometimes those negative experiences can impact the way we view ourselves, others, and the world. Stressful or traumatic experiences can lead to depression, anxiety, sleep issues, avoidance, and negative thoughts and emotions, including anger, guilt or shame. Many mental health issues and destructive patterns are developed out of difficult or traumatic experiences which are stored in our emotional memory networks and have yet to be processed in an adaptive way.

I have, however, developed specific passions for working with two populations: those struggling with chronic depression as well as individuals training to work in helping professions.
Let’s face it. Finding a therapist is a daunting task! There are so many variables to consider and it can be hard to know where to even start. In hope of making this process a little easier for you, let me take a few minutes to tell you about myself and how I practice. Life and experience have repeatedly shown me that the therapeutic relationship is instrumental for change and healing. As a result, I work to create an atmosphere in which each person feels safe and understood. Life has a way of wearing us down, and while we do the very best we can to get through, we can’t always do it on our own. My hope is to create an environment in which you feel supported and empowered on your journey. You are the only expert in you, and I am here to support your process of growth and healing, while equipping you with the tools to be successful. The process of therapy is sacred and one I take very seriously, but I also think it is important to have some fun and share a few laughs! Life is hard enough as it is!

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 Hillsboro. 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.
