I have significant experience working with clients who have a wide range of concerns including sexual trauma, depression, anxiety, family difficulties, peer problems, self-injurious behaviors, grief and loss, and adjustment and life transitions.
Chocolate, snowboarding, and shopping can be therapeutic, but sometimes they're not enough. I see teenagers, adults, and families when struggles get in the way of fun and suffering becomes too familiar. Friends and family hopefully are there when we need them, yet therapists can provide additional essentials: nonjudgmental, individual attention in a safe setting. Relationships are central to our well-being, and the therapy process involves building a relationship. Clients lead, and I listen to your goals and help you to identify unhealthy patterns, reduce negative self-talk, and learn more about how you view yourself and the world.

“When we deny the story, it defines us. When we own the story, we can write a brave new ending.” -Brene Brown Life can be challenging. Relationships are complicated. During difficult times, we may pull away from others fearing the personal connection or maybe we just need time to figure things out by ourselves. Sometimes this behavior will help, and sometimes it will not. We may reach out to family and friends thinking they know us best but continue to feel lost and confused. One thing is for certain: no one needs to face these difficulties alone.

After suspending my practice in early March, 2019, I have notified my clients that I have placed my practice on hold until pandemic conditions permit. Remote therapy can help many people but it does not conform to what I bring to my patients. It has been very meaningful to have worked with those of you I have seen over a 40 year career. Thanks for your trust in sharing your "stories" with me. I encourage, but you have displayed the courage it takes to make meaningful change. I hope to resume my practice when conditions permit.

Feeling overwhelmed is all too common these days. Sometimes, uncomfortable thoughts and feelings even keep you up at night. You spend a lot of time trying to convince yourself that everything is "fine,” but deep down you know it's not true. Hoping all of this would just go away hasn't worked. Instead, you feel sad, isolated, and scared. If you're being honest with yourself, you know things won't improve unless you take action, but it can be hard to imagine what would make a difference.

The confusion that comes with anxiety, depression, or conflicted relationships can make any person feels as if they are stumbling in the dark, unable to remember positive experiences such as simple happiness, curiosity, and fulfillment. Effective psychotherapy is like "turning on the lights" of awareness, allowing us to recover internal clarity, healthy connection with others, and meaningful sense of direction.

To do this, we usually 1) explore any straightforward or creative ways to alter life circumstances that contribute to the malaise, and 2) identify, then make and implement a plan to reduce any self-limiting thoughts, beliefs, assumptions, and doubts that contribute to my clients' distress.

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 Madison. 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.
