Therapy for Depression & Anxiety

Do you feel anxiety about daily life challenges like your health, job security, or finances?

Anxiety

Does life seem overwhelming and hard, so you worry about being late, completing daily tasks, or the well-being of your loved ones?

Everyone at times feels anxious or depressed. It is normal to have some down days or to feel transient anxiety about the unknown, but, when you find yourself thinking more about what is wrong in your life than what is right, it is time to get help.

Do you:

  • Worry a lot about everyday things?
  • Feel restless and have trouble relaxing?
  • Find it hard to concentrate?
  • Have trouble falling asleep or staying asleep?
  • Find yourself irritable or feel “on edge”?
  • Feel tired a lot of the time?
  • Get easily startled?
  • Do you worry excessively about your performance at work or school?
  • Do you worry about such things as catastrophes, such as earthquakes, climate change, or war?
  • Do you wonder if life is worth living? 

How I work 

How I Work

My approach is practical and straightforward. Because I have worked so extensively with depressed and anxious clients, I know how to short-circuit inner self-talk, so it turns from negative to positive. In addition, it is important to rule out medical or diet related factors in mood issues. Don’t let your emotions rule your life, contact me today and get the help you need.

Short term treatment for anxiety and depression can help you feel better quickly. I use many tools and techniques: CBT, Heart Math, EFT, TFT, biofeedback, the Alpha-Stim, hypnotherapy, meditation, and many other tools. Instead of living with the angst of your feelings, call and change your future and your life now. 

  “May today there be peace within. May you trust that you are exactly where you are meant to be. May you not forget the infinite possibilities that are born of faith in yourself and others.  May you use the gifts that you have received, and pass on the love that has been given to you. May you be content with yourself just the way you are. Let this knowledge settle into your bones, and allow your soul the freedom to sing, dance, praise and love. It is there for each and every one of us. We're fools whether we dance or not, so we might as well dance.” ( Japanese  Proverb)

Stress Management

Are you stressed out regularly?

Does life seem overwhelming?

Do you wish you had more hours in a day?

It is important to find balance in all areas of your life in order to live a healthy and stress-free life.  You need a Stress Management toolbox that includes many options that fit every situation and your age group.

Meditation, mindfulness, self-hypnosis, breathing techniques, Heart Math, the Emotional Freedom Technique and many other practices can easily be integrated into your lifestyle. I teach my clients how to integrate these tools into their daily self-care routines.

Balance and self-care are essential components in stress reduction along with a consistent practice of empowering self-talk. Stress Management is a skill, easily taught.

Meditation

Do you meditate daily?

Are you stressed during your day?

Do you take time for your inner life process? 

Do you journal?

Meditation Quote

The benefits of meditation are well documented scientifically. Meditation is always beneficial, and I encourage my clients to add this tool to their daily self-care. In order to benefit from meditation, it is important to practice daily and to learn how to meditate.

When I began meditating many years ago, I knew very little about its benefits. However, within a week of starting to practice Transcendental Meditation, I found I had more energy, could swim double the number of laps I could previously swim, and my day seemed easier and more harmonious. I have continued to mediate twice daily since 1974 but have integrated other meditation and consciousness tools into my work and practice. This arena is one that sparks my passions, and I love exploring their expanding awareness with my clients. Learn to meditate. The benefits speak for themselves.

Life Transitions

No man ever steps in the same river twice, for it's not the same river and he's not the same man. (Heraclitis)

Do you feel fulfilled with your job, relationship, family life?

Do you struggle day-to-day to feel aliveness and joy?

Are you going through a life transition? Are you going through a career change, loss of a loved one, the birth of a child? We all go through periods of change and realignment in our life. Each transition carries with it its own challenges and stressors and navigating these changes can be disorienting and confusing. I help my clients navigate these life transitions by guiding them toward clarity and by supporting the through difficult times. In addition, at all times finding your truth is important and sometimes it takes courage to be true to yourself and the depth of your being.

Life Transitions Quote

Thus, all life transitions are challenging as is finding your true path. Wanting to be on their “right” path is a goal many of my clients talk about. It is a worthy goal, but often hard to pinpoint or find. With careful questioning and honest assessment of your strengths, weaknesses, and values, you can find your ideal path without a lot of struggle or angst. I often ask clients: “Do you love what you do, and do what you love? 

help you change your course to one that brings you joy and fulfillment. This work focuses on what you love to do and creating ways to fill more of your life with these pursuits.

What is in your way? You may be using automatic negative thinking. Catching yourself and changing your self-talk is critical in redefining your future. You may be reacting to people and things in your life rather than being the creator/chooser. How you communicate with yourself and others is key in any relationship. By working with your own language, and the way it affects you, you gain mastery and effortlessly change your patterns of behavior. Part of the work I would do with you would focus on how you communicate with yourself.
