My focus is primarily on treating anxiety, depression , trauma, panic attacks, obsessive-compulsive disorder, and social anxiety.
What people don’t usually realize is therapy is an investment. Many of the changes an individual makes in counseling are lifelong. Committing to therapy on a regular basis can enhance your well-being, improve your insight, and build your self-confidence. As your therapist, I can provide a non-judgmental ear, and we can utilize tools to help your mood, decrease your mental health symptoms, and boost your ability to cope with whatever life throws at you. I offer individual therapy and couples therapy, and I see adults and adolescents from 13 years old and up.

Stress, anxiety and depression can prevent us from living our best life.
Relationships are complicated, and we all need someone to occasionally help us make sense of our current situation. Counseling does that and more. Women face unique issues and experiences. Motherhood, work stress, family conflict, self-doubt, and other problems can add up. Come spend some time taking care of yourself when the demands of life become overwhelming. You are worth it.

I work with adults who are struggling with a depressed and/or anxious mood to experience a more hopeful and purposeful life. Former clients who had a background of trauma, grief/loss, mood disorder, or had become stuck during a time of transition say that through therapy they were able to regain a balanced and satisfying life. Counseling involves digging deep, learning new ways of thinking, challenging old behaviors, and being courageous enough to believe that you can change and grow no matter where you are in your life journey.

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 Waco. 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.
