I work with individuals, family, and couples ranging from children, adolescents, and adults ranging from ages 14 to 80. I address issues such as anxiety, depression , bipolar disorder, , grief, drug and alcohol addiction, marital and relationship issues, positive communication, positive parenting, behavior modification, goal and career setting, self esteem, and relationship enhancement. My view of counseling is a helping process. Helping you make choices about what you want to be, have, do, and give to others. This involves a process of coming to an awareness of your needs and wants in a confidential, safe and accepting environment..

I help folks who are having issues with relationships, depression , anxiety, unwanted behaviors, coping with the past, and those having difficulty experiencing hope for the future.
Life can be hard. I understand... I have worked professionally counseling my clients for over 30 years. We work together to find answers to the struggles they are facing, and I have found that if a person truly is ready for change, with the right help and Helper, change will come. We all get "stuck" sometimes and may lose hope, but there IS hope. "We'll get through this together."

Searching for a counselor is a very intimate and vulnerable activity. Seeking help with relationship? Seeking help with managing anxiety? Seeking help with a history of trauma? Have you tried counseling before and it has not gone well? Have you thought about counseling before and never taken that step to make and attend an appointment? Attend counseling to help your healing journey move forward with someone who is not emotionally attached to any of the decisions you need to make. Journeys are a series of steps. I hope you find the courage to move forward in your journey. Soon adding Animal Assisted 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 Altoona. 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.
