As a nonbinary trans guy and gender affirmative therapist, I know how scary it is to interact with providers who are poorly informed about issues facing the trans and nonbinary community. Having a clinician who is informed and affirmative can make a huge difference. I specialize in helping individuals navigate their gender journey and provide support to the LGBTQIA+ community. Since we are more than our gender or sexuality, I also work with a variety of other issues such as depression , bipolar disorder, anxiety, trauma, grief and loss, general life transitions, self esteem, assertiveness and boundary setting, to name a few.

Currrent Reviews at www.jsptherapy.com. Parenting and relationships don't come with instructions. Couples often say: "We constantly argue and never resolve anything. Give us some communication tools." Individuals tell me: "I'm stuck. Anxious. Depressed . I want to enjoy life." These are fixable problems. For over 25 years, I have helped people identify what stands in the way of them giving and receiving the love they want and the life success they desire. If you are exhausted from trying, or the one most hurt, I can help you focus on what's within your control to change situations.

Depression , anxiety and LGBTQIA+ are some areas of specialization as well as any relational concerns with family, friends or one or multiple romantic partner/s. Life is a rollercoaster (up, down, up, up, down) and the path to healing is not often a straight line. Whatever it is you may have going on, talking about it often helps. If you are looking for a safe, supportive environment to heal, explore, learn and ultimately grow you are in the right place.

Symptoms to be aware of are poor school or work performance, alcohol or drug use, suicidal thoughts, anxiety, depression , low self esteem, or inability to determine and progress on life goals.
I have a passion and skill for working with individuals and families facing diverse challenges. Family challenges may arise as communication barriers, child development concerns, overwhelming emotions, or unhealthy behaviors. When these situations become unmanageable or disruptive, psychotherapy for individual family members or the entire family has been shown to help alleviate suffering and return people back on track with their lives. The foundation of my work as a psychotherapist is to help individuals, family members, and groups work through these types of conflicts.

In my counseling practice I help people make sense of the chaos and trauma they find within and around themselves. I help my clients build coping skills and work toward fulfilling short- and long-term goals. Generally speaking, the clients I work with struggle with anxiety, depression , trauma, stress, and/or life transitions. Recognizing that specific types of stress, such as second-hand trauma, occur in helping professions, I provide counseling to medical personnel, educators, counselors, yoga teachers, physical therapists, and others who do helping/service work.

I believe we all have good intentions. I've been working in counseling for 15 years, and I've found that everyone is trying to do what they feel is right. Unfortunately, experiences that shaped us and the environment in which we were raised can lead us to question what we believe to be right. This confusion can lead to depression , anxiety, attention deficit, and addiction. I love working with clients who know what they want to do and who they want to be, but are struggling to make that happen. Contact me. Let's work together to create your best, most authentic self.

Depression Therapists

What is the goal of therapy for depression?

Therapy for depression has several major goals. One is to relieve the mental pain of depression, which distorts feeling and thinking so that sufferers cannot see beyond their current state of mind or envision feeling better. Another is to give people the mental tools to recognize and correct the kinds of distorted thinking that turn a problem into a catastrophe and lead to despair. Therapy also teaches people how to process negative emotions in constructive ways, so they have more control over their own emotional reactivity. And it helps people regain the ability to see themselves positively, the motivation to do things, and the capacity for pleasure.

What happens in therapy for depression?

Perhaps most important, no matter the type of therapy, patients form an alliance with the therapist; that connection is therapeutic in itself, plus it becomes an instrument of change. Patients learn to identify and to challenge their own erroneous beliefs and thoughts that amplify the effects of negative experiences. They learn to identify situations in which they are especially vulnerable. And they learn new patterns of thinking and behaving. They may be given “homework” assignments in which they practice their developing skills. In addition, good therapists regularly monitor patients to assess whether and how much the condition is improving.

What therapy types help with depression?

Several types of short-term therapy have been found effective, each targeting one or more areas of dysfunction. Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) helps clients challenge their negative thoughts and beliefs, learn new behavioral strategies, and curb reactivity to distressing situations. Behavioral activation (BA) is a form of therapy often used in conjunction with CBT; it focuses on engagement in rewarding activity as a pathway to changing negative feelings and disturbed mood. Another widely used approach is interpersonal therapy (IPT), which targets the social difficulties that both give rise to and get exacerbated by depression. Therapists may combine approaches as needed.

Can therapy for depression be done online?

Studies have found that online therapy can be highly effective for treating depression, although it may be more challenging to build a good therapist-patient alliance on screen than in person—at least at first. However, online therapy can offer considerable advantages. Accessibility and convenience are tops among them. Some people actually find it easier to talk about problems online than in person. While online therapy typically limits visibility of facial expression and body gestures that give important nonverbal cues to a patient’s state of mind, it can give therapists a glimpse into a patient’s world and life, providing information that can be highly useful in guiding therapy.

How effective is therapy for depression?

Many studies show that therapy is highly effective provided that patients complete the prescribed course of therapy, commonly 16 to 20 sessions. Over the long term, it is more effective than medication and the effects are more enduring. As a result, psychotherapy has the power not just to relieve current suffering but to prevent future episodes of the disorder. Therapy reverses the dysfunction in neural circuitry that disposes individuals to a negative view of themselves, the world, and their future and they acquire coping techniques, problem-solving skills, and understanding of their own vulnerabilities that are useful over the course of a lifetime.
