I hope to be able to assist people undergoing a wide range of issues, and I am especially interested in various forms of anxiety and depression .
Therapy can seem strange from the outside looking in. People often wonder how talking about their life with someone they are just getting to know can help them to better understand themselves, or to find greater peace and fulfillment. I believe that being deeply listened to is a need which everyone shares, and therapy provides an opportunity to experience exactly that. The listening and compassion that a therapist offers opens a space for an exploration of experiences, feelings, and thoughts to invite new ways of seeing, feeling, and thinking. Importantly, therapy also offers a relationship of support, non-judgment, and safety.

I specialize in helping those struggling with depression , anxiety, loss, transitional issues, and relationship challenges.
I am so glad you are taking the first step to get help. It is a sign of strength not weakness to seek counseling and I commend you for it. I know how difficult it was for me to seek counseling after a car accident. The help I received was so positive, that I decided to switch majors to become a therapist. I wanted to be a part of the healing process for others to have improved coping skills and a better quality of life.

From struggling to get out of bed because of depression to the never-ending anxiety from the unknown, let me be in your corner and get through this with you.

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 Toms River. 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.
