Is depression hurting the quality of your life? Depression is a serious medical condition. It is not a sign of weakness nor the result of a personality defect. Depression not only affects your life, but also your entire family. Depression is used to describe a wide range of emotional problems. One-time periods may last for days or weeks while chronic periods can last for years. Chronic depression is different from the "blues". The blues are an unpleasant reaction to a sad event. Individuals may feel bad temporarily, but bounce back to their normal emotional state.

Life throws us curveballs...and sometimes we realize that our old ways of coping just aren't working anymore. Counseling can be immensely helpful in getting back on track or adjusting to new life circumstances that are beyond our control. Learning new ways to engage problems, improve relationships, and deal with our negative feelings can be very beneficial to establishing and maintaining health, wellbeing, and happiness--so that the life we are living is one we truly want to be in! I specialize in personal and relationship issues, coping with changes, and seasons of depression and anxiety.

Depression and anxiety make life harder to manage. Depression often feels like you are sliding into a pit of numbness, and you can quickly lose the ability to enjoy simple pleasures. Anxiety gives you the gnawing sense that something terrible is about to happen, complete with visceral warning signs, even when you are perfectly safe. Both are exhausting and turn daily life into a chore. Are you ready to get relief?

I work with a number of different types of people. Most common issues are depression, anxiety and substance abuse. Most folks initially just want a little hope. To be heard...to be understood...to make meaning of their experiences. Some need a new path. Some need to just improve the path they are on.

My approach to counseling provides a warm and trusting environment where you as a client can feel seen, heard, and safe while learning to make healthy relationship repairs with yourself and others. Whether you need help processing anxiety, depression, stress, or trauma, an increased sense of safety will give you greater freedom to examine patterns of behavior, thoughts, or emotions causing concern.

Most any therapist will tell you that they prefer seeing clients who are motivated to change. Clients presenting as "depressed" often express little or no hope. Clients with anxiety have difficulty seeing stressful situations as manageable. Couples often present with one or both doubting that the marriage can survive. I believe all clients have incredible inherent God-given resources to effect positive change. Likewise, I believe marriages are salvageable, if couples are willing to work, to be vulnerable, to accept, and to understand that the greatest expression of love is to fully know and to be known.

What type of Jackson mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist or psychologist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.

How to find a therapist or counselor in Jackson?
When looking to find a therapist, start by considering training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Finding a psychologist or therapist who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

How to use my insurance?
Understanding cost and insurance coverage is an important concern for many people. With some basic research and conversations with prospective therapists, you should be able to have a good understanding of the best way to afford therapy.
