Change is a constant in all our lives and it can take on many forms. Sometimes it can mean loss (death, divorce or end of a relationship, career changes or retirement, aging, family transition, moving to a new area) and sometimes it can involve helping someone you know cope with their changes or challenges (social skills, medical status, mental health, etc.)

I understand it is not easy to come to therapy but talking to family and friends is entirely different then talk "therapy". This is especially true if you are depressed , anxious, grieved, struggling in your marriage or have trauma. Just take that first step and make the phone call and I will guide you through the rest. My clients are so surprised to find out what a relief it is to come to therapy and wonder why they waited so long. My seasoned listening skills and thought provoking questions will help you know yourself better and reach your goals. My style is light and warm yet focused on results. Growth is my specialty!

People always tell me that they feel comfortable sharing their thoughts, ideas and feelings with me. I believe this is because they feel unconditional acceptance without any judgement. Many people I support are living with anxiety, depression , wrestling with a life transition, struggling in their relationships at home or at work, or just feeling stuck. If you are contemplating making a change in your life and are seeking guidance as you explore your options and the possibilities that change may bring, I can help.

My private practice is focused on helping individuals of all ages who are experiencing life transitions, depression , anxiety, trauma, addiction, parenting, and women's issues including postpartum depression .
I believe most people are innately resilient, and only need a fresh perspective to help them to restore balance to their lives. I begin by getting to know my client's unique life experience, beliefs, concerns, and behaviors. We then work together to identify, challenge and discard self-limiting beliefs and behaviors, and help them choose more constructive beliefs and behaviors that produce positive life outcomes.

Times have changed and so has family dynamics. Life has really been challenging and even though Covid restrictions have been loosened you still may be feeling overwhelmed, anxious or depressed as you transition back to the social environment. Perhaps the issues you were having with your spouse or other family members were put on hold during the pandemic or have gotten worse. Maybe you are having difficulty deciding on a plan to return to the office. Whether it's due to marital or family issues, socialization, work/life balance, financial issues or just the transition process... whatever the reason, you are not feeling "normal"

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.
