I use mindfulness techniques and cognitive-behavioral approaches in working with patients. That being said, every person is unique and treatment should not be "one size fits all". I believe that it's vitally important that treatment techniques are tailored to the individual patient and the problems he or she wants to work on. I have extensive experience treating patients with a variety of anxiety disorders, depression and mood disorders, adult ADD, adjustment disorders and stress related problems. The core of my approach is to help people unleash their own inner motivation for change. I work with adults and teens.

Feelings of anxiety and depression are signals. They are NOT your fault. They tell us about unresolved and repressed feelings originating from painful situations - past or present. They usually occur either in the work arena or in relationships or both. Unresolved events can block development and subsequently produce a sense of despair. I specialize in getting to the 'root' of issues; helping to resolve that which has not been adequately dealt with, thereby facilitating development to resume.

Depression and anxiety can manifest themselves in a myriad of ways.
Life, with all its challenges can be overwhelming. Finding a trusted professional to process and explore these experiences can be helpful and meaningful. Therapy should be a non-judgmental experience so you can feel comfortable learning more about yourself. I view therapy as a partnership, you are the expert in your life. We can work together in discovering more effective ways to confront life's challenges.

I support adolescents and adults navigating a diverse range of problems, including depression , anxiety, trauma, and life transitions.
We all have an elemental instinct to feel balance and contentment within ourselves. However, emotional distress borne of life stressors, trauma, and inner conflict often compromises our ability to access joy and live in harmony with our values. I work to create a relationship grounded in warmth and non-judgment that supports your sense of safety and experience of feeling heard. Together, we identify areas of focus and explore what carries the capacity to help you reconnect with yourself and your life in meaningful ways.

I have significant experience working with those navigating trauma, depression , anxiety, PTSD, suicidality, grief/loss, low self-esteem, and ADHD.
As a firm believer in the power of genuine human connection, the dynamic between my clients and I is of my highest priority. A professor and mentor once said, “The question should not be, ‘What’s wrong with you?’ But rather, ‘What has happened to you?’” This quote shapes every conversation I hold with my clients. I am dedicated to breaking down the stigma of traditional talk therapy, particularly for young folks, by empowering my clients to rewrite their own narrative and understand their neurological roots, to become the best version of themself, for themself, their relationships, and their future.

For example, you feel depressed and withdraw from friends when actually deeper relationships are important to you.
It takes courage to go to therapy, especially when you feel stuck. That is why I appreciate the importance of a safe, nurturing and non-judgemental environment. There you can explore who you are, what is important to you and to repair what is keeping you from moving forward, whether it is depression /anxiety, relationship issues or an eating disorder. Once you have self-awareness, strategies and support, you will be able to make better choices and be the person you want to be.

You’re feeling overwhelmed. Your thoughts just feel out of control and disruptive to your life. Sometimes you feel defeated because everyday tasks seem like too much to handle. You have started to wonder if it will ever get better. You can recognize that there are factors in your past that have probably contributed to the way you feel now. Or maybe this just came completely out of the blue for you. Either way, you are struggling to make sense of it. You know that this isn’t the way you want to feel and you’re done trying to figure out how to make it better on your own. We at Lamppost Wellness are here to light your path to healing.

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 Evanston. 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.
