Experienced with providing family counseling, working with blended families, families coping with terminal illnesses, depression and anxiety.
I understand that life brings unexpected transitions. During these transitions people sometimes need someone to help facilitate change, someone to listen without judgment, or voice their thoughts in order to gain a fresh perspective. The goal in counseling is to help those in crisis, navigate through grief, anger, confusion, and those who feel out of control gain control. I have worked in several inpatient hospitals and private practice for six years and that has allowed me to counsel military families, clients with suicidal thoughts or attempts, addicts, and those who struggle with psychosis.

Did you know that 1 in 5 people in the United States live with a significant mental health condition, according to the National Institute on Mental Health? Unfortunately, many do not reach out for treatment and support due to fear, stigma, shame, and doubt. Research over many decades has shown that counseling/psychotherapy provides hope, healing, and relief to those dealing with emotional distress and relationship upheaval. If you or your loved one are struggling with a mental health condition, know that you are not alone and that there is help.

It seems like everyone around you is smiling and enjoying life. How do they do it? They look so confident and carefree, while even the smallest task feels insurmountable to you. Just going about daily life is like climbing a mountain, yet never reaching the top. The moment your eyes open, anxiety and depression greet you, stalking you throughout the day. Your mind is full of criticism and self-doubt. Yet you keep your pain a secret, because you're mortified and ashamed. Besides, your life is no worse than anyone else’s, right? Would they believe you’re suffering -- or blame you for feeling so bad? Maybe you even blame yourself...

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 Magnolia. 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.
