Depression Therapy Services in Bethesda, MD

Also Serving Fairfax, VA

If you are one of the millions of people who suffer from depression and anxiety, getting through each day can be a major challenge. When you are depressed, you can have difficulty finding the energy and focus to complete even simple tasks, and being present to your family or job can be daunting. When anxiety strikes, your heart rate increases, your stomach may become upset and thoughts race uncontrollably through your mind. Depression and anxiety also can interfere with your eating and sleeping. 

I can help you alleviate your depression and anxiety. Both depression and anxiety manifest in the body.  They don’t just affect your thinking. Core Energetics goes beyond talk therapy and involves your whole person in addressing these issues.

David Burns, who wrote Feeling Good: The New Mood Therapy, is a leading expert in working with depression and other mood disorders. Burns notes that in addition to changing how a person thinks, activity is a second major approach to mood elevation.  

Additionally, anxiety producing situations cause physical tension in the body.  Margaret Wehrenberg, author of The Anxious Brain: The Neurobiological Basis of Anxiety Disorders and How to Effectively Treat Themrecommends physical exercise to treat anxiety. Exercise can reduce the tension in tight muscles, use up the adrenalin of the stress response, help rid the body of toxic cortisol and increase blood flow to the brain, which facilitates thinking and problem solving.


Targeted Core Energetics’ movement and breathing exercises combined with thoughtful processing of the underlying issues can alleviate your depression and anxiety. To heal and transform your depression and anxiety, please contact me. I look forward to helping you renew your mind, body and spirit.
