My work with children/adolescents includes: anxiety, depression , behavior concerns, and coping with family, peer, or life issues.
Accepting New Patients --- Taking the step to begin therapy is a brave choice. I understand that it frequently comes at a time of vulnerability when emotional pain or life problems are intense. As a therapist, I provide a safe, non-judgmental space to begin understanding life circumstances that are creating concerns for you. I approach therapy as a collaborative process and understand the importance of trust and empathy in the therapeutic relationship. I am a licensed clinical social worker (LCSW) and I work with people of all ages.

I've worked with adults and adolescents struggling with depression , anxiety, low self-esteem, life transitions, trauma, & stress.
You are going through life surviving but aren't really thriving. On the outside, people might not even notice anything is wrong. Inside, you're second guessing yourself & struggling to find balance. It's difficult to feel like you know who you are or how to be yourself around other people. These feelings may be affecting your relationships, school, parenting or career. Through our work together I will help you engage more fully in the present, & work towards the best version of yourself. It is hard work but can be done with gentle guidance. I'm trained in EMDR, CBT and EFT.

Do you notice that you struggle with the same kinds of problems, emotions, and relationships over and over again? Have you tried different coping skills without success? Do you turn to things like substances, unhealthy relationships, or mindless internet scrolling to take the edge off sadness, anger, fear, or loneliness? Explorative, insight-oriented, in-depth psychotherapy can help you understand and finally transform these dynamics, increasing your well-being and sense of self. This lasting change offers an opportunity to expand your world.

My approach as a psychotherapist incorporates the belief that in therapy, we are not merely addressing symptoms such as anxiety or depression , rather, we seek to understand how these manifest and learn how to overcome them not only during treatment but in the future as well.
With the worry and uncertainty surrounding the Coronavirus, many of us are facing new challenges that affect all aspects of our lives. If you are worried about your health or the health of a loved one, your financial situation, adjusting to working from home, currently not working or afraid that you will not be able to work, dealing with increased family tensions, feeling the loss of not being able to see your family members, or the grief of having lost someone to this virus, you don’t need to face these challenges alone.

Are you struggling with feeling overwhelmed yet without purpose? Relationships with others feel off or conflictual? Anxiety, depression or irritability seem your constant companion? I work with teens, adults, couples and families to identify where they feel unheard, unappreciated and unfulfilled. These feelings can serve as guideposts to areas that need more exploration. Oftentimes generational issues surface showing how one generation can leave lasting imprints that effect future parenting, relationships and feelings of worthiness and sense of identity. Lingering belief systems can cause havoc to our happiness or life choices.

Therapy is an experience where human beings learn to live differently. Differently is the key word. Different can look like less depression , more spontaneity, or deeper and more mutual relationships. Different can be learning to say "yes," "no," or "maybe." Different can be improved physical health, less anxiety, or sustained sobriety. When one begins treatment there's usually a percolating idea of what needs to be different. Helping you clarify the ways you'd like to live differently, what has gotten in your way up to this point, and how those changes can be made is psychotherapy.

As we go throughout our lives, we often tend to get all wrapped up in the journey to provide a better life for ourselves and our loved ones. However, sometimes we don't take enough time to show love to ourselves, and we are often left feeling unfulfilled, restless, or exhausted. Whether you are facing issues such as anxiety, depression , addiction, or even just need some help "doing life" in a different way, my hope is that I can offer a space where you can breathe, speak freely, and decompress from the daily stresses of life, as I meet you right where you're at in this present moment.

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 Clayton. 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.
