Adults most commonly seek individual therapy for depression and anxiety.  While symptoms vary for each individual, it often means you’re feeling overwhelmed, stressed, more tearful than usual, not eating or eating more, having trouble getting up in the morning or are sleep-deprived, feeling anxious and fearful and not knowing what caused it.  What you do know is that you’re not feeling right. 


You may know what it is that’s bringing on these feelings, or making them intensify, but often it hits you out of the blue and you really aren’t sure how or why it started but just know you want it to stop! So how do you know if you should see a therapist?  


You don’t need to wait until everything in your life comes crashing down to see a therapist.  In fact, the goal is to catch these feelings and symptoms as early as we can and help you return to a place where you feel back in control.  It’s miserable to feel like you’re just trying to survive day to day, pushing through being overwhelmed, sad or anxious.  I’m here to help you figure out what’s happening and give you skills and perspective to turn things around. 


Grief and loss is something I know all too well.  While many people think it refers just to the actual death of someone close to you, it can also involve loss that comes in many other forms and results in overwhelming sadness.  Grieving doesn’t follow a straight path…it comes in waves and often without warning.  While it is a very natural process, it can cause interruptions in your relationships and daily life.  Therapy with someone who understands gives you a time and a place to openly grieve, and develop productive ways of functioning while still honoring your loss.
