Has "life" impacted your self esteem and how you navigate your day to day? Do you have the desire for change but not sure where to start? Does having the support to help you navigate the depression and anxiety sound like a relief? My goal is to meet you where you are and to push/support you to become a more confident version of you. We get stuck. We subscribe to others expectations. We can operate with a negative filter. We compare ourselves to others. We deserve more, we are more and together we can obtain more. I look forward to helping you uncover what is holding you back from being your best.

Collaborating with individuals and couples, I have seen significant improvement in the quality of their relationships and a marked decrease in their anxiety and depression .
For more than twenty years, clients have taught me about frustration, worry, sadness and striving to feel better. I work with clients who want to be happier and less anxious, who want to improve their performance, and who want to interact positively in important relationships. Working together, we identify and increase patterns of behavior and ways of thinking that are most productive, eliminating unhealthy behaviors. I also share tools for growth, updating my clients about research findings pertinent to their concerns. Solution-oriented therapy allows clients to set and achieve their goals, becoming happier and more optimistic in the process.

I love working with talented, bright individuals who need the space to find or rediscover their voice in the midst of anxiety, depression , difficult relationships, trouble at work, trauma or loss.
When things seem out of your control, it can be difficult to stay focused and feel empowered to make good decisions for yourself and create the life you want. If you are a capable, driven individual and you are wondering why you feel stuck, or unhappy, you are not alone. We all need help at times accessing our own voice, working through the ways we are stuck, and finding happiness through the choices we make. I am currently offering tele-health (secure video chat) intake, and therapy sessions for those needing extra support right now, and those not wanting to wait to seek help until after the COVID-19 situation has eased up.

Feeling anxious or depressed as a result? Maybe you feel like things would get better as time passed, but they have not.
I thoroughly enjoy working with "emerging adults." Those who may be struggling to find their sense of identity and adapting to the greater demands and responsibilities of adulthood. Have you recently had a baby, and you're struggling with the transition to motherhood? With advanced training in perinatal mood and anxiety disorders (PMADS), I have a passion for working with women who are struggling to connect to their baby or finding it hard to feel like themselves again. I also enjoy working with couples and aim to help couples identify repetitive patterns of conflict and access emotions underlying the conflict.

I support children, adolescents, and young adults facing anxiety, depression , identity struggles (i.
Children and adolescents feel the weight of the world as theirs is only just beginning. Understanding and managing emotions they may not be ready yet to conceptualize is a challenging thing to go through. I believe that society can sometimes undermine the amount that children can go through and the volume that it affects them long-term. I feel that allowing a safe and free space for children and adolescents to feel everything can allow for the opportunity to open up, heal, and learn how to handle those big feelings coming in.

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 Old Town, Alexandria. 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.
