Common Concerns


People who struggle with depression often feel down for extended periods. They lose interest in activities that they once found pleasurable. Depression negatively affects millions of Americans each year.

Anxiety and Stress

Stress and anxiety are related, but often confused. Stress is tension associated with a specific event (e.g. a test or a job), while anxiety is a non-specific worry about the future. To find relief, people with anxiety may turn to repetitive routines, preoccupations, or addictions.


Addictions occur when we continue to repeat a behavior despite the negative and destructive conseqenences resulting from that behavior.  Untreated addictions can have devastating results in our lives, but help is effective and available.   


Experiences that overwhelm or scare us can leave a lasting impression. The symptoms can leave us stressed, depressed, and have negative consequences for our work and home life.


Feeling understood and understanding one's partner is what allows couples to deeply share one another's lives. Often, couples struggle with communication issues which actually mask and may exacerbate deeper relationship issues.


Trust plays a vital role in sustaining a relationship. People trust differently. For some, trust is established quickly, but more commonly it is hard-earned.  Similarly, some are able to forgive quickly, while others (most of us!) find it ver difficult.


Self-esteem is a feeling of personal worth, confidence, and competence. It is important to be able to value yourself regardless of your current state of personal achievement, beauty, or intelligence. Your self-esteem creates the foundation for a full life, great relationships, and a feeling of well-being.
