Depression , anxiety and problems in relationships often cause deep anguish and pain, just getting by each day can be difficult. We often struggle in silence, believing things will never get better or that no one could understand. Well-meaning friends and family urge us to “just get over it”-but that often that makes us feel alone. I believe every person possesses the potential to transform their life. With the right support and ability to learn healthy coping skills, we will work together in a collaborative process to create the change you have been waiting for. Therapy is a place just for you, to be heard, validated and supported.

I have experience working with the adolescent and adult populations in PHP/IOP levels of care along with clients in an outpatient setting, dealing with anxiety, depression , bipolar, addiction, personality disorders, and psychosis, to name a few.
Life can be hectic at times, and will lead us to prioritize anything and everything else before ourselves. There may be times where we feel lost and unsure of what to do. This can be an overwhelming feeling and may lead us to question who we are and what makes up our identity. By entering the journey that is therapy, you will be able to finally prioritize getting to know yourself; your likes and dislikes, triggers and strengths, as well as developing the wisdom to become A Better You.

"What good is psychotherapy if you're up to your a** in alligators?" A phrase that was used by my favorite professor in graduate school. My goal as a licensed clinical social worker is to meet individuals where they are in life presently, whether they need to process ongoing psychological challenges, or current anxiety and stress related to everyday concerns. With my patients, I want to help process through feelings, thoughts, and behaviors and help facilitate a better understanding of any underlying issues. Ultimately, helping individuals to be able to live a more healthy and productive life.

Currently not accepting new clients. Do feel your emotions, thoughts, and life are controlling you instead of the other way around, despite outward appearances? Are there things you’ve wanted to talk about and share but feel afraid or ashamed of? Do you yearn to feel accepted, understood and crave balance, peace, and awareness? You don’t have to do this alone. I have walked with many through their “darkness” whether it’s Depression , Anxiety, trauma and been a companion to those on a quest for growth and understanding. I know how lonely and scary it can feel to face these things alone.

Life is a wonderful, and at times difficult journey. When you experience anxiety, depression , trauma or relationship/family issues on top of the pressures of daily life, coping effectively can be overwhelming. Yet know that with the right support and toolbox of skills, you have the ability to prioritize your happiness and achieve your goals. Your journey to assemble this tool box does not have to happen alone. I can provide a nurturing space where you can gain insight into unwanted patterns of behavior, identify and challenge unhelpful automatic thinking patterns and get in touch with your innate strength.

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.
