You are a highly capable person with a mountain of responsibilities. People depend on you, and you never fail to deliver. But there is a hidden cost to living this way, and it's starting to add up. You're burned out, depressed , and wondering "Why do I work so hard? Who am I without my work? My family duties?” Of course your mind is going to sad and dark places. Your personal priorities are at the bottom of a never-ending list of to-do’s. Oddly enough, when you think about making a change for the better - something always gets in the way. Self-doubt, another task, someone else’s problem, or an urgent deadline.

While my practice includes addressing many areas of concern, including anxiety, depression , relational difficulties, and life transition issues, I also devote about 50 percent of my time to evaluating and treating pregnancy and post-partum anxiety and depression .
I have been in clinical practice for close to 20 years. I have enjoyed working with children, adolescents, and adults as they identify and overcome the barriers that impede their ability to experience wellness and life satisfaction. These barriers range from relational and life transition concerns to significant health issues such as depression and anxiety. My therapy approach is holistic and collaborative. Together we identify and address the impact of potential contributors to current concerns. These could be past hurts/traumas, biological or hormonal imbalances, current social supports and outlets, as well as spiritual concerns.

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.
