Anxiety and/or depression are the leading reasons people seek counseling help. Studies have shown people with emotional problems visit their physician with complaints of a physical nature more frequently. Just like the commercial says, “depression hurts.” More often than not, anxiety and depression are derivatives of a problem of a more specific nature. If you are not aware of why you are depressed or anxious, I can help you have insight into what may be causing your distress. Once identified, a new perspective or learning new coping skills may help you manage the issues in a way to decrease your distress and increase your emotional well-being. We can work together with a collaborative approach to restore your motivation and create a happier, healthier you.
