Depression is the black hole of the soul. It seems to drag you down and steals the joy out of all the things you love and out of the relationships with all the people that you love. It makes you tireder than tired and crankier than you care to admit. Often you don't want to admit you're depressed and think you'll just push though it. Depression, however, is a real chemical imbalance that can be healed - but it won't just disappear. Get the help you need today to make it better for you and for those you love.

Depression can seem to impact every part of life at times and make any task seem like too much work. I provide my clients new ways of handling and challenging the negative thoughts that keep them feeling stuck. By using cognitive behavioral therapy, an evidence based treatment for depression, clients learn to change their thinking pattern that has led to a lot of their emotional pain.

So often, depression is a natural response by people who feel overwhelmed by all that is required to engage with and enjoy the world. After more than 30 years in the field, I have learned that the secret to helping clients get past that overwhelmed feeling requires only two easy steps. First, I listen closely to find out what people's natural strengths, skills, and gifts are. Then I gradually give them very small assignments called "baby steps" that rely on their strengths. Each small change has huge results, and depression soon fades away as each step is achieved.

As a psychologist, depression may be the most common complaint or difficulty that my clients experience. Put simply, depression can be a result of genetic/constitutional tendencies, environmental issues such as life stressors, or both. I often employ what is known as the cognitive-behavioral approach in dealing with depression, in other words looking at the relationship between negative, self-defeating thoughts, and the resulting emotion, e.g., "Stinkin' Thinkin'." I also place a large emphasis on important daily mood issues, such as sleep, diet, activity level, and receiving adequate light levels. An attitude of gratefulness is important in reducing feelings of depression.

Depression can immobilize, it takes! What is missing, what have you lost, why is there hopelessness? What does the depression look like, what does it do, how does it make you act, and how does it affect you and the people you love? What has been swallowed up in that big black vast hole? Is the depression ever gone, what were you doing when it was driven away, how long was it vanished, and what was the glimpse of hope you saw? When working with depression a key concept is to ask questions. The answers to the questions are where we find the solutions. I recognize that the individuals I see are the experts in their lives. I partner with them them in therapy to bring about change.

Being in a funk, blah, depressed, sad...........all of these sensations can grab hold of you like a lead weight, and can feel like a vicious cycle - when you feel this way, you don't feel motivation to do the things that would help you to feel better, so you keep feeling worse, and on we go. I can help you get "unstuck" from that thought process, work with visualization to help you envision being more content (which is half the battle), and even use specific therapeutic yoga poses to help improve your mood.

Long term research studies indicate that treatment for depression has lasting benefits. Canadian researcher Ian Colman, an epidemiologist in the School of Public Health at the University of Alberta, reviewed a long-running national population health study. He found that those who pursue treatment are three times less likely to be depressed eight years later. He also found that cognitive behavioral therapies are as effective as anti-depressant medications and that the two treatments in combination are even more effective. Treatment for depression can improve your sleep, and as a result improve your daytime energy level. This in turn, helps you cope with every day demands like paying your

People going through a depression often feel lonely, isolated and very frightened. They worry that their situation will never improve and that they are destined to a bleak and empty existence. Because they are feeling so badly, they do not see any options or possibilities for themselves and are convinced that the good things in life are not for them. Counseling is an opportunity to renew hope and to envision possibilities.

Depression can hit any of us at any time. Sometimes, this stems from some outside external force and sometimes it comes from within. I can help you work toward finding the things you enjoy again through the use of cognitive behavioral therapy, feminist therapy, and choice therapy. Often times, talking about your feelings, having a supportive environment, and realizing that there is hope can be just the thing to help get you back on track.
