I counsel individuals struggling with anxiety, depression , stress management, emotional abuse, family dysfunction, ADHD, and much more.
Are you struggling with day to day stress, transitions in life, relationship issues, health concerns, or loss? Sometimes it's the weather, the time change, or the holidays that can throw things off. Whatever is going on, life can get overwhelming and an outside perspective can help. I strive to meet clients where they are and help them feel as comfortable as possible while we identify their personal goals, develop a plan specific for them, and work to bring peace and functionality back to their world.

I counsel adults with a variety of issues including (but not limited to): depression , anxiety, grief, career, relationship or family problems, pre-marital, and spiritual difficulties.
Whether you're struggling with a difficult situation, or would like to invest in improving a relationship, taking the first steps to find a counselor can be daunting. We all have struggles and need help from time to time. It's important to find a competent counselor that you can trust. I consider it a privilege to be a counselor, to be invited into my client's stories, and to walk along-side them in the midst of the challenges they are facing.

In addition, I have extensive experience in working with individuals that struggle with depression , anxiety, PTSD, ADHD, and substance use issues.
So many of us are walking around with unhealed wounds. Healing is a process that takes time, support, encouragement, courage, and validation. Therapy can be an integral part of the healing process for many. I utilize therapeutic approaches such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Internal Family Systems Theory, and Attachment Theory to help clients navigate the healing process. We dive deeply into unconscious processes and work on bringing them into consciousness. We work on quieting the inner critic and living in true authenticity through vulnerability and courage.

I specialize in working with pre-teens to young adults, however I have experience working with clients of all ages. I am also particularly interested in helping men, who often have a hard time reaching out for assistance. I begin my work with clients by first building a positive rapport and trust. I don’t believe therapy needs to be boring, and I enjoy bringing humor into the therapeutic environment. My clinical approach to therapy depends on the needs of the client. I have helped people with anxiety, anger expression, depression , trauma, educational challenges, sudden life changes, and grief.

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 Alton. 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.
