I work with individuals who have anxiety, depression, trauma, marital/relationship issues, phase of life and professional development issues & addiction/recovery.
*Currently Not Take New Clients* Every person has a unique story regarding their life experiences. These events have shaped the way we perceive ourselves, our relationships, and the world around us. Often times, it is difficult to reconcile these beliefs, ideas, and feelings which can keep us feeling lost, discouraged, and unfulfilled. As a counselor I have the privilege to provide a safe space where one can explore and examine their experiences without judgement. Together we work to put the missing pieces together and discover healthy ways to define the best version of you.

I work with adults and older adolescents who struggle with depression, anxiety, grief/loss, relationship problems, and phase-of-life concerns.
I began working in the field over 20 years ago, in university counseling centers across the South. Now in private practice, I see adolescents-middle age adults. I strive to join my clients at the point in their process where old patterns are no longer working and collaborate with them to find new ones. I like to set goals together that provide a roadmap for the course of our work, and I challenge my clients to work on things not only in session, but also in their everyday lives. I view therapy as a temporary stop along life’s path; a realignment that sends my clients back out there as healthier and happier versions of themselves.

Specifically, I specialize in applying my approach to therapy with adolescents and adults on issues of relational difficulty, depression and bipolar disorder, grief, learning differences, personal growth, and spirituality.
You are not too scared, too lonely or too sad. There is hope for you. You are not too sick or too hurt. There is hope for you. You are not too broken or too damaged. There is hope for you. At times, life can be so painful that it is difficult to believe things will ever get better. During these times what we need, as much as anything, is someone to stand by our side, understand us, and remind us that we can, once more, be healthy and whole. This is the central component in my approach to therapy.

I’m here to help you explore anxiety, depression, trauma and their lasting effects on your life today.
Why can't I just, "be happy?" Does that sound familiar? It’s easy to feel that way especially if you’ve been thinking the same way for a while. Feeling unhappy is just that, a feeling. The good thing about thoughts and feelings is that they can change if you let them. I do believe we’re all doing our best, but sometimes we can feel stuck, whether it’s in our relationships, jobs, or in our way of thinking. We all want a full life—one not ruled by regret from the past or by fear of the future. We must let go of the "what if’s" and "should I" so that we can move forward.

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 Brentwood. 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.
