Whether you are searching for couples' or individual counseling, I can help you get started. Maybe you've reached a stumbling block in your relationship. Communication is often at the center. I am practiced in spotting differences in learning and communication styles, family culture, belief systems, and more, and helping you to develop skills to move forward. Perhaps depression or anxiety is what limits you in your life or your relationship. You're feeling lonely, sad, unmotivated, or you struggle with worry and fear, both of which are compromising your sleep, impacting your work or social life, leaving you feeling exhausted.

Over the years, I've developed expertise in helping people suffering from anxiety and depression .
I believe that therapy is a journey towards growth and change. Over the past thirty years, I've had the honor of sharing this journey with adults of all ages, as well as adolescents and children. In the beginning, I often help people with an immediate problem or crisis. My personal style is warm, supportive and interactive. I draw from cognitive behavioral techniques, which stress concrete, behavioral change. Gradually, I create a safe space where we can establish a trusting relationship. People begin to identify the patterns they want to change. They replace old behaviors with new ones.

Over the past 20 years I have learned that my clients come to therapy to be heard, understood, and to make sense of the complicated issues and relationships in their lives. People begin therapy for many reasons; feeling stuck, overwhelmed,confused or consumed with anxiety and depression . Couples come to therapy to improve their communication, to increase their co-parenting skills, or to enhance their emotional and physical intimacy. A good psychotherapy relationship can improve your feeling of well-being. It can be helpful during periods of transition and provide a safe place to explore past traumas or recent losses.

During this unfamiliar time of Coronavirus, I use teletherapy (meeting with people through video chat) to help people cope with the uncertainty of this time and managing pre-existing issues of anxiety, depression , life transitions, and LGBT issues. I have a special interest in providing support through the uncertainty of a medical diagnosis, treatment, and end-of-life issues. I also walk beside people as they cope with grief and bereavement. If it resonates with the person, I have experience leading mindfulness meditation sessions, which has been proven to alleviate stress and anxiety.

I have helped clients with concerns including, among several others, depression , anxiety, trauma/PTSD, and life transitions.
I believe that how we interact with others in the present often grew out of lessons learned earlier in life. Sometimes, people use strategies to cope with situations that once made sense but are no longer effective or useful. I also believe that everyone has strengths that can help guide decisions and behaviors in the present. I believe in a collaborative approach to therapy, where we become travelers on your journey; we look at concerns, explore their origins and feelings that arise, and discuss how to view and handle situations here and now.

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 Newton. 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.
