Understanding Anxiety, Depression, Thoughts and Moods

Many people have difficulty allowing themselves to fully experience their range of normal human emotions.  We feel sadness, anxiety, anger, shame, or depression and we are told to or learned to avoid feeling them.  Whether we allow ourselves to experience these real moments, or we avoid them with other behaviors, they're still there.  They are present, and they don't go away.  In fact, the emotions we avoid feeling not only remain in some way, they also increase in volume and show up in unexpected and intrusive ways.  


Whether you're suffering from panic attacks, anxiety, postpartum depression, long-term sadness, or fluctuating moods, you can and you will feel better.  Learn to understand your experience, and how to improve your overall well being.  I support holistic approaches to treatment, traditional western medicine, and behavioral modifications that help you understand your internal experience and live your best life.
