Many individuals seek my help in therapy because the anxiety and/or depression they are experiencing is negatively affecting many aspects of their lives. Common symptoms may include not feeling good about yourself, loss of connection with friends and family, diminished productivity at work, and/or an overwhelming sense of unhappiness, nervousness or angst.
In their primary forms, anxiety and depression can be excruciatingly painful and debilitating, resulting in a complete loss of interest in life and inability to function in daily living. However, even their milder manifestations can have an enormous impact, preventing clients from fully participating and enjoying life. For some clients, biological components of anxiety and depression are primary and are often treated in conjunction with medications; for non-biological causes, research shows that talk therapy works better. Yet, regardless of their origins, work with a therapist significantly reduces symptoms and enables clients to have more happy and productive lives.
