Depression often causes people to feel sad, empty, or hopeless, and can cause a lack of interest in life. It can also affect a person's thinking patterns and physical health.
Anxiety can mean nervousness, worry, or self-doubt. Anxiety disorder is a mental health disorder that entails excessive, repeated bouts of worry, anxiety, and/or fear.
Obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD)
Obsessive compulsive disorder entails a distressful pattern of recurrent thoughts and repetitive behaviors. Obsessions are oftentimes unreasonable thoughts and fears that plague one’s mind to the point of compensatory behavior. This occurs despite logically recognizing the problem. The cycle is seemingly endless and instils feelings of hopelessness/helplessness. Severity of the condition varies but tends to begin gradually, becoming more intense under stress.
Distress stems from a subjective perception of something being unwanted, undesirable, or detrimental to your wellbeing. Excessive stress significantly impairs mental and physical health and is associated with many diseases and conditions.
Self-esteem is the degree to which a person feels confident, valuable, and worthy of respect. Feeling low self-esteem can influence overall well-being and be linked to anxiety and/or depression.
Social anxiety or social phobia is fear of social situations or a fear of interacting with people other than close friends and family. Social anxiety can be persistent, intense, and debilitating, greatly affecting daily life.

As a licensed psychologist, I am specially trained to work with anxiety-related, depression, insomnia, obsessive-compulsive disorder, and stress-related problems. I’m proud of my nearly 20 years as a therapist, researcher, and educator. I not only provide therapy, but research ways to make therapy work better, and teach others how to do therapy. Why does this matter? I use my experience to bring you up to date, personalized treatments that are known to work well for many people. I conduct all therapy online, a format that can be highly convenient. During my career, I’ve been fortunate to spread awareness about teletherapy among clients, students, and even outlets such as NPR, the Wall Street Journal, and the Cincinnati Enquirer. If you are considering teletherapy, I’m happy to help you weigh the possible benefits and downsides.
