I have done a great deal of work with adolescents and young adults struggling with changes in life, those with chronic mental illnesses (to include depression , mood disorders, personality disorders, and psychosis), military families, those with anxiety/adjustment disorders, families (traditional, blended, single parent, and co-parenting), and couples.
Let me first and foremost congratulate you on taking the first step to changing the direction of some things going on in your life. Seeking therapy is no easy process and finding the right therapist is an even harder one, so it should not be taken lightly. You taking this step is a huge one that will reap positive rewards for you and your family. I believe that each individual and family has the ability to overcome whatever obstacles they face, and will work to help you unlock that potential while increasing self-esteem, empowerment, and connectedness. It won’t be easy, but it will be worth it!

Our experiences in life - relationships, career, family and community - bring us joy and fulfillment, but also challenges, stress, and loss, even trauma, anxiety, illness and depression . As young adults and adults, when these critical life events are left unaddressed, symptoms and stresses we carry can contribute to illness, work problems, psychological issues, unhealthy behaviors, isolation and low self worth. Clients with these concerns, as well as professional challenges, family needs, divorce and remarriage, and relationship problems, can find a therapeutic home to heal and to rediscover inner resources.

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 Norfolk. 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.
