If you've landed here you are probably looking for information about anxiety and depression or are trying to find out about me as a therapist.
I've been working with clients for 23 years. I like to help people get better by using the best treatment information available help to them in a non judgemental environment.Together we make decisions about what interventions and suggestions work for them and what doesn't. Therapy in my office is a partnership.
On this website, I share my ideas and thoughts about anxiety and depression treatment and how we can interpret the research in a way that people understand so they can help themselves.
I created this website for my clients and for others who want information about how to best help themselves to feel better. I feel like there are many untrained people in our field, although well intentioned, and a lot of bad information out there.
It is not your fault you are depressed or anxious. If you are, you face some obstacles, and stigma from society. I like to do what I can to help you remove these obstacles and to help with this stigma in anyway possible. You owe it to yourself to be your best advocate. Perhaps you are the loved one of someone who struggles with anxiety or depression and you are their advocate. If so I hope this site helps you, too.
Depression and anxiety originate and are maintained through an intricate and delicate relationship between our mind (thoughts), body ( biology), and behavior. Our environment, life circumstances and family also play a role, as do our genetics.
Besides the best research on anxiety and depression disorders and treatment, I also share information about those areas that my clients talk most about and that seem to play a role in their depression and anxiety. Issues that pertain to family, work, relationships, and their sense of purpose in life.
Healing from anxiety or depression consists of examining how your thoughts, feelings or behavior patterns, which you may be unaware of, are contributing to your unhappiness.
Each person is different and unique, but we learn more about what might help each day. Some of the ideas here are helpful for one person but not helpful for another.
Here you will find the information we know about anxiety and depression explained in ways that you can understand so you can make informed decisions about what to do. It's difficult and overwhelming to know where to start and how to help yourself. Let this be the starting point of learning and your journey to health.
This website may not be enough to help everyone. Depending on the severity of your depression and anxiety you may require therapy or medication. If you have suicidal ideation please seek help immediately. That means going to the hospital or emergency room or dialing 911.
Above is a menu divided into sections. Each section relates to different struggles my clients cope with and might be helpful to learn about.
Do I need a therapist?
You may not need a therapist. It may be that after exploring these pages, and other self help resources, you can do your own anxiety and depression treatment! However, it's hard to make changes. The persistence and motivation required to be happy is great. A therapist can help you sort through and focus on what will help, make suggestions about medication or natural treatments, and provide you with the support and cheerleading necessary to beat it.
