Working on oneself may come as a challenge, an obstacle that may stand in the way of you becoming a better version of who you would like to be. Are you having trouble adjusting to changes in your life, such as anxiety, anger issues, difficult events, depression or some form of trauma? Therapy can be useful in helping individuals manage those stressors, and improve relationships with significant others, family members, and most importantly self. It may seem difficult to acknowledge what you're going through mentally, but the first step is knowing that you want to be that better you in every sense.

Karen Rountree Palmer
Licensed Professional Counselor, MEd, LPC-S
In my work with clients struggling with anxiety, depression and addiction, I use a combination of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Mindfulness Based Techniques to help gain coping skills and self awareness.
I believe counseling is a holistic, healing and empowering process. There are many times throughout our lives when we get stuck in transitions, feelings, or in our own mind. Counseling helps us get comfortable within ourselves. It creates self-awareness, self-acceptance and self-compassion which in turn changes our perspective as we walk through our daily life.

My experience includes a wide range of mental health concerns including anxiety, depression , ADHD, self-esteem, behavioral issues, and life transitions.
I approach counseling from a collaborative, goal-oriented perspective using a strength-based mindset. I believe it’s important to emphasize an individual’s strengths rather than issues because it can create a more creative, authentic, and empowering experience. I believe that therapy is not a one-size fits all and that it can be a learning process. By using a collaborative approach, we can work together as a team.

Deatrice M Green
Licensed Professional Counselor, PhD, NCC, LPC-S, RPT
As a therapist specializing in depression , anxiety, relationships, and addiction, I appeal to people struggling with feelings of hopelessness or helplessness, excessive anxiety, fatigue/low energy, low self-esteem, concentration or decision-making problems, mood swings, couple or family relationship problems, parenting issues, or over-reliance on alcohol/substances.
Therapy involves collaborating together to identify your strengths and to develop effective solutions to the issues, patterns, thoughts and actions you are experiencing in your life. I strive to provide clarification, encouragement, interpretation and information to facilitate you working toward your desired goals. Our emphasis will be on here-and-now choices to re-orient yourself to the present rather than just exploring the past. We all have an underlying drive to reach our maximum potential; I see therapy as a tool for uncovering that drive and finding self-actualization and my role is to encourage you in that exploration.

What is the goal of therapy for depression?
Therapy for depression has several major goals. One is to relieve the mental pain of depression, which distorts feeling and thinking so that sufferers cannot see beyond their current state of mind or envision feeling better. Another is to give people the mental tools to recognize and correct the kinds of distorted thinking that turn a problem into a catastrophe and lead to despair. Therapy also teaches people how to process negative emotions in constructive ways, so they have more control over their own emotional reactivity. And it helps people regain the ability to see themselves positively, the motivation to do things, and the capacity for pleasure.
What happens in therapy for depression?
Perhaps most important, no matter the type of therapy, patients form an alliance with the therapist; that connection is therapeutic in itself, plus it becomes an instrument of change. Patients learn to identify and to challenge their own erroneous beliefs and thoughts that amplify the effects of negative experiences. They learn to identify situations in which they are especially vulnerable. And they learn new patterns of thinking and behaving. They may be given “homework” assignments in which they practice their developing skills. In addition, good therapists regularly monitor patients to assess whether and how much the condition is improving.
What therapy types help with depression?
Several types of short-term therapy have been found effective, each targeting one or more areas of dysfunction. Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) helps clients challenge their negative thoughts and beliefs, learn new behavioral strategies, and curb reactivity to distressing situations. Behavioral activation (BA) is a form of therapy often used in conjunction with CBT; it focuses on engagement in rewarding activity as a pathway to changing negative feelings and disturbed mood. Another widely used approach is interpersonal therapy (IPT), which targets the social difficulties that both give rise to and get exacerbated by depression. Therapists may combine approaches as needed.
Can therapy for depression be done online?
Studies have found that online therapy can be highly effective for treating depression, although it may be more challenging to build a good therapist-patient alliance on screen than in person—at least at first. However, online therapy can offer considerable advantages. Accessibility and convenience are tops among them. Some people actually find it easier to talk about problems online than in person. While online therapy typically limits visibility of facial expression and body gestures that give important nonverbal cues to a patient’s state of mind, it can give therapists a glimpse into a patient’s world and life, providing information that can be highly useful in guiding therapy.
How effective is therapy for depression?
Many studies show that therapy is highly effective provided that patients complete the prescribed course of therapy, commonly 16 to 20 sessions. Over the long term, it is more effective than medication and the effects are more enduring. As a result, psychotherapy has the power not just to relieve current suffering but to prevent future episodes of the disorder. Therapy reverses the dysfunction in neural circuitry that disposes individuals to a negative view of themselves, the world, and their future and they acquire coping techniques, problem-solving skills, and understanding of their own vulnerabilities that are useful over the course of a lifetime.
