    Depression & Anxiety

    Experiencing feelings of sadness or hopelessness?

    Struggling with anxiety or stress? Are you feeling “stuck” in your current situation? Therapy can help get you unstuck and we have space for you in our Catonsville office and hold counseling sessions virtually. 

    Living with depression and/or anxiety can feel overwhelming at times. Here is the good news… It can get better! Working with a counseling professional provides you with a safe environment to identify the thoughts, feelings, and patterns of behavior that are contributing to your symptoms. Counseling can also help you learn new coping skills to live the life that you want.

    – hot and cold flashes
    – shaking
    – racing heart

    – struggling to breathe
    – snowballing worries that get bigger and bigger
