Depression is such a challenging force, when it feels like it's overtaking you. What's more, we're told to "just get over it". It just doesn't work like that. Together we'll explore more of what's behind the depression, what it may be shielding you from, what it feels like in the body, and coping skills to help you move forward in ways that feel right to you.
I intricately and intimately understand the unique challenges that accompany childhood and adolescence. I know how to relate and build rapport with kids and teens. I believe that the greatest gift we can give to our children is the gift of nonjudgmental understanding, and it can be extremely helpful to provide them with an objective third party support. I specialize in helping younger individuals successfully manage their growing pains and navigate through the complex challenges of life.
Anxiety can stop you from doing the things you want to do or being around the people you want to be around. This serves as a barrier to living the life you want or it could even be a barrier to even function in the way you need. Through Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy and other therapeutic methods, we can determine the cause of your anxiety and help you find ways to lessen or eliminate it. I have been helping my clients overcome anxiety for over 20 years.
