Research shows that depression and anxiety are both complex experiences, involving varying elements of biological/genetic predisposition, the circumstances of one's life, and internal psychological issues.
The good news:
My experience is that with an integral approach--taking into account how anxiety and depression affect your body, heart, mind and spirit--that there is the real possibility of breaking down the internal and external elements and actually overcoming these states. You can develop a deep understanding and mastery of depression and anxiety; no one is doomed to the mere "management" of symptoms.
My work is to help you make this fundamental change.
Exploring all aspects make permanent change possible.
I focus on an integral approach to change. Since depression and anxiety are complex, permanent change requires an approach that gets at all the different roots. As in gardening, if you just pull the tops of the weeds, eventually the roots left in the ground will sprout again.
My goal is to help you to live a more joyful, accepting life, with less time lost to anxiety and depression, and more time gained for living. Learn more about how and why I can help.
Depending on your individual needs, I use a combination of the following therapeutic techniques:
My work is active and engaged, oriented towards supporting you in learning and practicing your way out of depression and anxiety. I am passionate about the possibility for permanent changes, which can, and does, happen.
