I have spent years working with women experiencing depression , anxiety, eating concerns, work/career issues, grief and loss, relationship concerns, and difficulty with major life changes.
If you're struggling, you owe it to yourself and those around you - your partner, children, colleagues, friends - to take a step toward change. If you're like many women, you are in a constant balancing act. Whether your struggle is managing the day-to-day stresses of life or a more specific concern, talking with someone who will really listen, getting support, and having help to consider your options can make a tremendous difference.

We all get wounded in the battles of life -- some of us in tragically dramatic ways, and others of us bleed through the piercings of a hundred small injuries. Let me help you get to the core of the struggles and back on the road to living your life again. Perhaps it is an addiction you can't seem to get rid of, or that haunting sense of inadequacy or loneliness. It may be anxiety or depression , gender identity issues, or past trauma. Maybe for you a relationship you value has have become difficult or painful.

You don't have to be alone! If you are experiencing the aftermath of grief, such as the inability to sleep, depression , anxiety, isolation, or the inability to cope, know that your heart can find healing.
Are you starting to realize that life after grief is hard to cope with because you feel immense pressure from friends, family, and society on how you should grieve? You are not alone because grief is such a complex concept that it usually leaves the person feeling broken. Experiencing grief and trauma can feel like you're on the beach, and all of a sudden, a tidal wave crashes, and you feel terrified, confused, and stuck in place. You know what it feels like to experience these feelings and are ready to make a change.

Most of us want to be good people who have our needs met and enjoy our family and friends. Most of us struggle at times to get there. We need a little help: Someone to listen, help us think things through, or to give us some coaching about life and relationships. Or maybe we are in serious trouble and really need professional help. Taking that next step is often scary. For 30 years, Mark has helped 1000s. 85-90% of his clients say they are very satisfied with their counseling. He's genuine, accepting, effective. Ready to take that step?

I'm not the expert on your life, YOU are. With the perspective of an outside observer and insight born of experience, I seek to help you map out a path to pursue healing and wholeness. I believe that ignoring your heart is as dangerous as following your heart. I instead seek to help you understand what's happening in your heart, so you can explore your inner world and respond out of a place of self-awareness and growth.

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.
