Most individuals contact me because they are anxious, depressed , or feel that they are functioning below their potential.
Most individuals come to me when new or stressful life circumstances have overwhelmed their traditional coping strategies. We work together to understand the circumstances that they are facing, the distress that they are experiencing, and explore strategies for reducing their distress and enhancing their well-being. Together we form an understanding partnership that enables them to face the world with more effective coping strategies and improved relationship skills. My theoretical approaches include cognitive behavioral therapy, psychodynamic therapy and positive psychology. My clients describe me as warm, empathetic, wise and practical.

I focus on treating early adolescents and young adults (ages 10-18) struggling with anxiety, self-esteem, and depression issues. I am especially experienced working with young girls who are experiencing difficulties navigating their family and peer relationships as well as mood swings and emotional regulation challenges. By helping my clients identify what is (and is not) in their control and looking within themselves to see what strengths they didn't know they have, I believe that anyone—no matter their age or background—can achieve their goals.

Through child psychotherapy and working in conjunction with parents, I have helped children and adolescents develop the skills needed to cope with depression , anxiety, and life's challenges and improve their ability to navigate the complicated years of physical, emotional, academic, and social development.
Maybe you've noticed that it's difficult to get up in the morning or that you are less interested in getting together with family and friends. Perhaps you've noticed destructive patterns in your relationships or that you keep "shooting yourself in the foot" at work. Conversations in therapy deepen understanding of distress and unproductive patterns of behavior. This new understanding and the tools you and I develop together can decrease distress and increase satisfaction with life.

I have experience in working with individuals who suffer from depression , anxiety, experiences difficulties with managing day to day stress, and those who have a history of trauma that find it difficult to move forward in their lives.
As humans, we all experience hurt, overwhelm, and uncertainty at some point in our lives. Usually, when someone comes to therapy, it’s once they have tried everything and nothing has worked. They feel defeated and lost. My calling is to serve those who are in the dark and need assistance finding the light. I believe that unresolved trauma and other issues can hinder progression in life and cause us to become trapped in areas of our lives that we are unsatisfied with. Because of this, I work diligently to help connect the dots between past and present experiences to facilitate understanding, acceptance, and growth.

I am an interactive therapist, interested in helping clients reduce symptoms of distress, usually anxiety or depression and explore with them the roots of their distress. I find whether it is addiction, eating disorders, chronic pain, or straight forward relationship issues, understanding the "why" as well as the "how" to fix it, helps the problem and symptoms subside. Clients that work with me finish therapy with a greater awareness of themselves which helps them avoid difficulties in the future as well as a host of healthy coping strategies to help get through the rough times ahead.

Hello and welcome! Sometimes our lives are stable; however, there are times where we are suddenly confronted with traumatic experiences or losses, such as health problems (dx. of cancer or terminal illnesses), the death of a loved one, separation of the family, loss of work, problems with our children, or academic struggles. These situations can make us feel unsure of our own capacities and emotional strengths which can lead to increased vulnerability, and can cause us to start experiencing high levels of depression and anxiety, or other emotional pain/fears.

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 Rockville. 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.
