My specialty is assisting in the change process - whether it is anger management, depression, anxiety, addictions, repairing relationships or improving parenting.
COVID has really helped people realize they need to work on some of their personal issues. Stuck, feeling somewhat hopeless of finding solutions? Anxious for improvement and open to information and development of new skills, YOU would benefit from my services. Stop blaming yourself for your problems, you are not defective. After listening and questioning, I most often can help trace problems and behaviors to learned coping skills which were modeled to you when you were young, or chosen as conscious or unconscious techniques you needed to survive. Clients have commented how much better they feel even after one session.

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 Irving. 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.
