The rules that depression plays by can change week to week, day-to-day. This makes it difficult for many to manage the symptoms on their own, trying to understand why they feel better some days, and others worse. I understand because I’ve been there.We work to understand your moods and symptoms, to get to the root of the depression, and develop skills and actions that work to improve your overall wellbeing.
In therapy we work to learn new ways to deal with your anxious thoughts, and the anxiety-provoking situations that may accompany it. By learning tools and skills to change the ways you think and act, we can reduce the impact that anxiety may have on you. Just as each persons anxious worries are different, so is the approach we take on tackling your anxious feelings and lived experience. We will work to create new skills based on your individual needs and comfortability.

Acceptance and Commitment Therapy or ACT is an action-oriented approach to psychotherapy that stems from behavioral therapies. In ACT clients learn to stop avoiding, denying, and struggling with their inner emotions and instead accept that these deeper feelings are appropriate responses to certain situations that should not prevent them from moving forward in their lives.
Somatic awareness is gained through developing and integrating a more complete connection with your body and its experiences. Through embodiment practices and techniques, the “Felt” awareness of physical sensations that is attached to emotions is cultivated and explored. Through this exploration, you may begin to unblock stored traumatic experiences in your body that prevent you from being fully present.
