Anxiety exists in a variety of forms (generalized, social, phobias, panic disorder). Untreated anxiety can feel overwhelming. Effective treatments for anxiety are available.


Depression is different from the blues. It can be caused by biological and/or situational factors. Several psychotherapy approaches have proven effective for treating depression.

Self Esteem

Healthy self-esteem is characterized by contentment, optimism and self-acceptance. Self-esteem can be damaged by abusive interpersonal relationships and limited experiences of success. Positive self-esteem can be developed gradually through therapy.
