I have worked with individuals experiencing anxiety, depression , anger, isolation, gender dysphoria, and substance abuse.
Finding a therapist that fits your needs can be a daunting process. To create change and facilitate healing, one must find a therapist that they are comfortable working with. I strive to build therapeutic relationships based in safety, security, authenticity, and trust. There is no one size fits all approach to therapy. Rather than looking at what's "wrong" my focus is on your strengths and accomplishments, and how I can help you visualize them. My goal is to work as a team with you to help facilitate the change you are looking for in your life.

I work with people who want to overcome personal obstacles that seem to recur again and again. While it is sometimes possible to face such issues alone, you may reach the point where another set of eyes and ears is necessary. Difficulties such as anxiety, depression , low self-esteem, trust, and anger issues, can be more complex than they first appear. Together, we will pay close attention to the way you experience yourself and others. Over time, you may begin to see and do things differently and with a greater sense of freedom and authenticity.

As an experienced depression /anxiety/trauma therapist, I believe that we all have the power to change.
*Accepting New Clients* Are you having difficulty relaxing and keeping your anxiety level down? When people come to therapy, they may be fed up with excessive worry, feeling like they can’t get their life together or that their confidence has taken a hit. You may be frustrated with feeling triggered in everyday situations. You might not even remember a time things didn’t feel this way. But one thing is for sure: you’re ready for some relief. You’re ready to feel better about yourself. You’re ready to learn tools to manage strong emotions. Most of all, you’re ready to break free and create the life you want to live!

My approach is empathic and inviting and our sessions include collaboration so you can meet your goals by decreasing symptoms of anxiety or depression , identifying healthier patterns, improve relationships around you, or find your true potential.
Are you feeling stuck and struggling to make a healthier change in your life? Is your anxiety crippling you or do you feel down and can’t shake it off? Many people deal with anxiety, depression in silence, especially the ones adjusting to a new identity such as parenthood. Others’ anxiety comes from challenges at work, relationships and other life stressors. I work with clients who struggle in silence and constantly ruminate on changing yet they might not have the tools nor the energy to get out of feeling stuck.

I have experience utilizing trauma-informed therapy with children, adolescents, and young adults in the management of depression , anxiety, grief, life transitions, low self-esteem, and interpersonal conflict.
I believe that every person holds unique life experiences that cumulate to create the story of who they are. These stories provide context to how people express themselves and view the world around them. Within the therapeutic space, I seek to meet clients in a warm, non-judgmental environment, one that is guided by a holistic framework to identify what health and wellness look like for each individual. By incorporating a strengths-based approach and emphasizing acceptance, I focus on collaboratively exploring each person's story to find the balance in accepting what they cannot control and making changes in areas they can.

It is not uncommon for individuals to experience anxiety, depression , or feelings of inadequacy at some point in their lives. Due to our social environments, how we respond to these unwanted feelings varies from person to person. This can lead to interpersonal conflict, relationship issues, stress with life changes, social anxiety, and ineffective coping. At Astute Counseling, we strive to support and help navigate these challenges.

Choosing to pursue therapy is a difficult decision but one that can offer great benefit. I work primarily with individuals struggling with depression , anxiety, and problems in their interpersonal relationships. Often clients I work with report feeling "stuck" in their lives. My approach is practical and present-focused yet grounded in the an understanding of the ways our past experiences may have contributed to our present difficulties. I help patients explore and work through what gets in the way of them leading a meaningful, satisfying life.

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. 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.
