I work with ages 30 and above with symptoms of depression, medical crises, difficult diagnoses, any of life's challenges and love to work with families, couples, or individuals.
Are you in need of help right now? Maybe you are struggling with isolation because of this lock down we are all in, or you are fearful about what the future holds, or maybe you've lost someone either by an unwanted break-up, other painful loss or just feel depressed. I am a faith-based therapist with more than 30 years of experience providing help to clients whatever their needs may be. I was a debriefing specialist after the Oklahoma City bombing and 911 and was honored to help with both crises in an official capacity. I know I can help you with whatever you are struggling with and it is my desire to do that!

While symptom relief is the initial focus, my goal is to also help people understand why they began struggling in the first place, with the hopes the symptoms do not return.

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 Keller. 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.
