Depression and anxiety are the most common reasons that people seek professional help. In their simplest form, depression is suffering related to what's happened in the past; anxiety is suffering about what is yet to come. These feelings can be overwhelming and lead to a belief that life is not worth living, and things can't get better.
Frequently, faulty beliefs about one's self and others play a significant role. A professional can help you identify these faulty beliefs, question them, and develop new ways of thinking. In addition, we often have painful experiences from the past that we need to face, and feel, before we can move past them and the depression and/or anxiety they cause.
The good news is many people find relief from these conditions through counseling. I work with folks everyday who have decided to work at getting better, and building lives worth living. If you'd like this for yourself please contact me.
