My passion for counseling includes but is not limited to couples, families, and individuals with depression or stress related challenges.
All of us go through struggles and challenges in life but we don’t have to let them define who we are as individuals. I am privileged to be able to hear the stories of couples and individuals who have had their share of challenges. Being an excellent active listener will be an essential role I will play on our journey of mindfulness, self-care, and the expression of feelings. My most important goal for my clients is to provide a safe judgment free space to work through those difficult challenges while encouraging growth.

I work with adults and adolescents who experience anxiety, depression , grief/loss, relationship issues, work & school difficulties, and life transitions.
People seek therapy for a variety of reasons and at various times throughout their life. The decision to see a therapist may be centered around a recent crisis that is causing emotional stress, a desire to address long-standing symptoms or simply a wish to make a change in one’s life. Whatever the reason, I see psychotherapy as an opportunity for you to get to know yourself better and work towards leading a more meaningful life.

Are you anxious or depressed ? Is anxiety or depression interfering with your life? Anxiety and depression can be paralyzing and may prevent you from living the kind of life that you seek. Typical coping strategies may provide limited but not lasting relief. I can help you to identify, modify, eliminate or manage the behaviors and beliefs that fuel anxiety and mood disorders. By learning a new set of skills, you can pursue the life you desire free from the burdens that have held you back.

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 Columbia. 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.
