My Approach to Helping
You want your depression to go away and your spark to return. I specialize in therapy for depression and low self-esteem. I can help you regain passion and meaning in your life. The cause of depression is complicated and often involves feelings of guilt, shame, and anxiety. I help you uncover the feelings, memories, and beliefs that have shaped who you are today, so you can get "unstuck" from the things that are pulling you down and holding you back. If you are like most clients, you will be quite surprised at what you will learn about yourself. Together we will uncover the deeper underlying issues that are keeping you depressed, so you can free yourself from them, and set your life on a different path.
How am I different from other therapists?:
I specialize in depression and low self-esteem
I don't just treat your symptoms, but help you get to the root of your problems so you truly understand the reasons WHY you feel depressed.
I believe in exploring your past to discover the ways in which earlier life experiences explain and continue to shape how you think and feel about yourself.
I take a non-pathologizing approach to your issues, which means that I don't treat your depression as an illness, but as a sign that you have become lost to yourself and need to address underlying issues outside your immediate awareness.
I know that you live a busy life, so I offer appointments during evenings and weekends so you don't have to take time off from work, and don't have to explain yourself to your boss or colleagues.
I invite you to look at my website (click link under my profile picture). Here you can find valuable information about depression, anxiety, and low self-esteem. If you are interested, you can also check availability, and book your first appointment directly on-line.
