Anxiety and depression are very common. Psychotherapy can bring relief, healing and recovery. Psychotherapy has been an effective means for many people to get back their life. Here’s a run down on anxiety and depression.
Do you think you may struggle with anxiety? Some symptoms of anxiety are:
- Nervousness, restlessness or being tense
- Feelings of danger, panic or dread
- Rapid breathing or hyperventilation
- Increased or heavy perspiring
- Trembling or muscle twitching
- Weakness or lethargy
- Difficulty focusing or thinking clearly about anything other than the thing that worries you
- Obsessions about certain ideas, a sign of obsessive-compulsive disorder
- Anxiety surrounding a particular life event or experience that has occurred in the past, a sign of posttraumatic stress disorder
When it comes to anxiety, research shows psychotherapy can be an effective option. In psychotherapy, I will join you to uncover underlying causes of your worries and fears. Together, we can focus on learning how to relax, look at situations in a new, less frightening way, and improve coping mechanisms and problem-solving skills.

Do you think you might be suffering from depression? You are not alone. Know that one out of every four people has depression.
Some common emotions signaling depression are:
- Feeling hopeless
- Feeling isolated and out of sorts
If you are depressed, the following thoughts might often enter your mind:
- “I am worthless and can’t do a thing about it.”
- “I feel guilty about it, but all I want to do is just eat, sleep and be alone.”
- ”I hate who I am these days.”
- “I can’t stop crying, and that just makes me want to stay away from others.”
- “I feel gut-wrenching pain that no one understands.”
- “My life and the world around me are dark. I hate it, but I can’t change it.”
The good news is there is help for depression. Many of my clients find relief in realizing that their struggle does not own them and that there are many options available to regain hope.
My aim is to help you sort out and address environmental, biological, and circumstantial factors of your depression that you can change, while offering support and care through a very dark time. If you are hoping to lighten your load and feel better, please contact me today.
