My clients typically include those who experience anxiety, depression and are recovering from trauma.
xx I am accepting new clients for morning and early afternoon appointments xx Are you feeling overwhelmed, sad or anxious? Have you ever felt that you couldn’t share your story with anyone because you feel that they just couldn’t possibly understand or that they would somehow judge you? We all have a story, and often we have to just push it aside just to get through our day until one day we realize that our story has taken over and is now interfering with our daily life. I will work to help you find the right tools to rewrite your story while in a calming nonjudgmental space.

I like to think of myself as a seasoned clinician who has adapted and adjusted to the changing times. I have evolved my craft toward a mindfully oriented practice which I combine with cognitive, behavioral, insight and DBT techniques. My work supports adults going through their journey of radical acceptance focusing on those life changing events which can often cause emotional dysregulation. Whether the emotional rollercoaster is based on abandonment, trauma, inability to emotionally attach / detach to health relationships, aging, divorce, affairs or grief resulting in phobias, fears, anxieties or depression ,

."I belong, therefore I am." The sense of belonging has often been wounded, damaged or undeveloped. Initially in our family, later in school, with friends and at work. Through the process of exploration and self-searching, we can begin to let ourselves go. When we are kind, and less consumed by our own ego; the darkness of depression and anxiety have less of a hold and we can find freedom.

My clinical orientation is relational which is an approach that can help individuals recognize the role relationships play in the shaping of every day experiences, understanding patterns and how they can cause emotional distress in the family, intimate relationships, the workplace, new life situations and in anxiety, depression and stress.
If you are looking for help understanding how to break out of situations that have you worried, sad, anxious or simply, alone, I can help. Together, we can embark on a journey to explore new ways of learning how to make positive, lasting changes that will last a lifetime. My ideal client is willing to take a risk and committed to working on themselves. This means allowing nothing to get in the way of your progress, developing a routine and taking charge of the things you would like to talk about. I am open to a multitude of possibilities and understand that anything meaningful in life takes time, energy and effort.

At one time or another, any one of us may feel overwhelmed, anxious or depressed . We may feel we are alone in our suffering or going through something no one else can understand. We may turn to drugs, alcohol or reckless behaviors. Our relationships suffer, our identity and self-worth collapse, and the vision we have for a happy, fulfilled future seems impossible to achieve. For many, therapy provides the guidance, skills, support and insight to unravel the source of suffering and change limiting thoughts, beliefs and behaviors into healthy, adaptive ones.

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.
