In my experience, the best way to address a problem is head-on. If we avoid the things, people, and places that are stressing us out we only prolong our feelings of anxiety and depression . I believe this policy sticks whether we are dealing with avoiding cleaning a messy house, walking on eggshells with a significant other, or feeling at a loss when your child just doesn't listen. My solution-focused approach to problem solving is ideal for assisting you in many of life's challenging moments.

Wellness is a matter of balance. Anyone who struggles with addiction, depression , anxiety, bipolar disorder, PTSD, or ANY experience of overwhelming emotion, can relate to a sense of imbalance. Often times we develop strategies to tip the scale. Unfortunately, we may find strategies that become part of a cycle of avoidance. I can help you break this cycle by creating strategies that promote balance, rather than a constant see-saw.

Let me help you find your inner strength! I am trained in EMDR and becoming certified in Sand Tray Therapy. I am also working towards my License as a Clinical Alcohol and Drug Counselor.

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.
