This might be a relationship issue, a personality problem which has bothered them from childhood, or a bio-psycho-social issue like depression or anxiety. I seek to help people by developing a relationship in which we can work in a therapeutic modality that is appropriate for them.

Additional trainings and expertise on substance use counseling, trauma, grief, depression , and anxiety.
These past few years have changed what we feel as normal, and for many, there are no easy answers to what the normal life looks like now. When we experience changing relationships with friends, family, and loved ones, we often feel overwhelmed in the face of those challenges. My counseling approach focuses on helping you better understand you, your life, to find clarity and purpose. I see couples, families, and individuals with a keen interest in teenagers and those experiencing transitions in their life. I am accepting and welcoming of different spiritual views, gender, gender expression, sexualities, etc..

Thank you for taking the time to seek counseling for yourself or your family. I know it is not an easy process to seek help from someone you do not know. I have been told I have a direct approach to assist in getting through painful memories at a gentle pace. I believe old pains can be healed if allowed to be shared and explored. I offer daytime, evening, and some Saturday appointments and use text alerts for appointment reminders. I offer both in-person and telehealth appointments.

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.
