Specific Issue(s) I'm Skilled at Helping With
My professional training, research interests and psychotherapy practice have been oriented to treating individuals who are suffering from depression and anxiety.
Depression can be experienced as debilitating mental pain. A lack of energy and motivation may coincide with a loss of interest in anything pleasurable. You may experience a deep sense of loneliness that no one understands. Frequent feelings of agitation, irritability and anger may result in actions that may further push others away. Difficulties with memory and concentration may reduce your ability to make decisions. These temporary deficits may result in feelings of low self worth and esteem. At times you may think that the only way out of this pain is to cease to exist, resulting in suicidal thoughts.
Therapy can help you resolve the pain and hopelessness of depression. In therapy you will once again experience hope and joy. Your level of energy and motivation will improve. You will be reawakened to the pleasure in activities you used to enjoy. Relationships with friends and family will once again bring you happiness.

What I Say to People Concerned about the Therapy Process
As a psychotherapist my professional ethics dictate that I can only provide therapy for mental health conditions for which I have completed professional training in the treatment of. As a result you can be assured that my services will be of benefit to you. I believe it is my professional responsibility to ensure you feel a sense of hope as a result of your first session. My therapy work with you is collaborative ensuring that the focus and pace of our work together is directed by your needs and level of comfort. This is achieved through my observation of your responses, professional sense of your readyness, and at times clarifying with you your level of comfort in processing a difficult issue.
