I am accepting new clients, at this time. Life has changed greatly, in such a short time. Things are more uncertain. Some new battles arise. You have goals, for yourself, for your relationships, but you struggle to stay on track. Along with these new barriers, the old challenges of anxiety, depression , addiction, abandonment, not feeling like you belong and other still stand in your way. You feel lost, alone, without some of your normal coping skills and you’re having trouble staying emotionally (and possibly physically) healthy, during this time. You're ready and motivated to work on yourself.

One of the hardest things for many individuals is to make the decision to seek therapy. As a Licensed Mental Heath Counselor/Therapist it is a privilege to be afforded the opportunity to be a part of someone's process as he or she starts to break free from some of the limitations imposed on them by their own past, or the pain of their early relationships and experiences, to find their way, uncover their goals, and start to reveal who they really are. it is honestly one of the most rewarding reasons I am committed to the process of change produced through therapy.

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 Shirley. 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.
