Introducing Makaylee Kelvington

Helping you overcome depression and anxiety

Anxiety and depression are common today

Anxiety and depression are common among teenagers and young adults, especially those in high school or college. Anxiety can manifest itself in many ways, including physical symptoms such as a racing heart, sweating, and difficulty breathing. depression, on the other hand, may cause a loss of interest in activities, fatigue, and feelings of hopelessness. If left untreated, anxiety and depression can have a significant impact on a young person’s life, including their academic performance, social life, and mental health. 

It is common for people today to be experiencing symptoms that include:

  • Self-harm

  • Self-medicating or using illegal drugs

  • Addictions – including alcohol, sex, social media or co-dependent relationships

Luckily, there are many resources available to help teens and young adults manage anxiety and depression. With the right support, it is possible to live a happy and healthy life despite these challenges. Since these behaviors can worsen anxiety and depression, it is important to seek help if you are struggling with these issues.

You can get better

I work with my clients to introduce real-world, easy-to-use coping skills to deal with anxiety and help prevent depression.

Some helpful coping skills for anxiety and depression include:

  • Gratitude practices including journaling
  • Talking to a trusted friend or family member

  • Participating in relaxation techniques such as yoga or meditation

  • Spending time in nature

I have found that for many of my clients, it is common to need someone like me to act as a neutral listener.  Many times your parents and friends, however well-meaning, are causing or contributing to the anxiety.  Why not get started today?

Set realistic goals

When anxiety or depression is impairing your ability to function in daily life, it can be helpful to set small, achievable goals. This can help you to break down what seems like an insurmountable task into manageable pieces. For example, if you are struggling to get out of bed in the morning, your goal could be to shower and get dressed. Once you have accomplished that, you can set another goal for the day, such as leaving the house for a short walk.

Celebrate Success

It is also important to give yourself credit for your accomplishments, no matter how small they may seem. Achieving your goals, even if they are small ones, can help to boost your confidence and improve your mood.

My Process

I have found that for many of my clients, it is common to need someone like me to act as a neutral listener.  Many times your parents and friends, however well-meaning, are causing or contributing to the anxiety

I use a variety of techniques to help you, but one of them is Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT).  CBT is a type of therapy that can help you learn how to better cope with stress and anxiety. CBT can teach you how to identify unhealthy thought patterns and behaviors, and replace them with healthier ones. This can help you feel more confident and comfortable in your everyday life.

I then use goal setting with my clients including:

  •  Identifying the goal
  •  Breaking the goal down into small, achievable steps
  •  Putting a plan in place to achieve the goal
  • Taking action towards the goal
  • Giving yourself credit for your accomplishments

Your end result

Working with me I will help you to be comfortable and confident with yourself.  This is facilitated by a sense of purpose and meaning.  This is fueled by positive self-talk.  You end up confident with yourself and enjoy spending time with yourself.

I will help you develop healthy communication and healthy boundaries with others, so you have a healthy lifestyle.
