I've helped many people with depression, anxiety/worry/stress, addiction, couples issues, self-esteem, weight, sleep, and anger issues.
I will work with you to capitalize on your strengths and help you identify and move beyond unhelpful mental and behavioral patterns lurking in your blind spots. Rather than talk endlessly about your problems, we will instead use various empirically supported techniques to step back from your problems and explore new behavioral and belief options that better correspond to your key goals and values. Then you'll practice these new perspectives and strategies at home in your real life until they feel more natural. **Please phone me first as I do not always have daily email access.

My focus includes working with anxiety, depression, and the general sense of not having reached one’s potential.
What often brings people to therapy are troubles with unknown parts of themselves. I strive to create a warm, collaborative experience through which to encounter and more deeply understand these dimensions. I’ve found it is through this understanding that one can move from suffering toward a more expansive sense of possibility.

I have worked with a range of patients and problems, including depression, anxiety, trauma, loss, anger, relationship issues, identity conflict, and struggles with self-esteem.
I view the psychotherapy process as a collaboration, where the two of us are working together to make sense of the obstacles interfering with your emotional well-being. My treatment approach is psychodynamic and relational. I find that closely attending to shifts in the therapeutic relationship - in a safe and empathic manner - can be powerful in unlocking painful patterns and enhancing personal strengths. My aim is to help you gain a fuller understanding of yourself and, in turn, more freedom of choice so you can live a more meaningful life, with greater comfort.

I specialize in working with adolescents and adults in the areas of trauma, anxiety, depression, life transitions, and identity.
Life is a complex journey that challenges us as we move through it. All the experiences we encounter affect the way we interact and interpret our internal and external worlds. When these worlds become overwhelming, associated with negative beliefs, and/or affect our daily functioning it may be time to find support. I believe that we all have the ability to overcome barriers and obstacles that come our way throughout this journey. Each of us can grow and change through the very strengths we have within ourselves. Sometimes these strengths can be hard to access when we are going through a challenging time.

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 Philadelphia County. 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.
