Depression can range from mild sadness to clinical depression requiring hospitilization. Depression has many possible causes, from dealing with mourning, situalional i.e. problems at work, marital/family issues and or health concerns. Or depression can be caused due to a chemical imbalance of brain chemistry. We believe a comprehensive assessment and diagnosis vital in the treatment of all forms of depression, because epression can manifest in numerous forms. Our clinicians are trained in both traditional and holistic (total person wellness) philisophies. Thus ensuring the best possible assessment, diagnosis and treatment plan is developed for each client.

Sometimes folks phone and ask, "Do you treat depression?" My first thought is that this is like asking your child's pediatrician, "Do you treat ear infections?" -- Depression is very common and most psychologists treat it. I believe that we need to aggressively treat the symptoms of depression so a person can get back to feeling better and being productive. Cognitive, cognitive-behavioral, and interpersonal therapy approaches are used. However, I believe we also need to go beyond symptom reduction (a disease model approach) and toward a broader understanding of a person's life challenges, aspirations and goals, and especially ways that he or she feels stymied or blocked ...

If you are dragging yourself around -- no energy, no pleasure in life, overwhelmed by feelings of sadness, helplessness or worthlessness, your mind may be telling you there is no hope. But the opposite is true. Depression is very treatable. Actually 80-90 percent of people with depression report feeling better if they go for assessment, therapy, and, if appropriate, medication. Let an experienced therapist guide you. When depression lifts, your energy and interest in life increases, you restore curiosity and creativity, you're less irritable and hard on those around you, you make healthier decisions, and you're grateful again for the beauty, humor, and love in your life.

Change can be hard...but not impossible; people can alter their lives. I want my clients to achieve their goals and navigate their way to fulfilling lives. Since 1988 I have had the privilege of helping clients of all ages and stages and have pursued advanced training in state of the art techniques. The opportunity to voice feelings and receive support in a confidential, non-judgmental setting is essential. My clients say my commitment, engagement and honesty helps them open up and be real with me. Through our work together, my clients become more self-aware of their emotional triggers, learn how their past affects their present and how to create positive changes in their lives.

Depression can be very frightening and dangerous. It takes many forms and requires sensitive and flexible treatment. I work with people who are depressed to understand the ways in which behaviors that are efforts to find relief can compound their suffering, for example crawling into bed or seeking comfort from substances like food, alcohol, street and prescription drugs. Together we develop resources that are more effective and reliable means of improving their disordered mood both as short and long term solutions. Over time, I work with people to understand their vulnerability to depressive episodes and find strategies to minimize their intensity and recurrence.

I can help you explore the history of your depression, whether it is situational, short term response to stress, or long term which needs to be evaluated for chemical imbalance factors. Talk therapy has been shown to be effective and long term talk therapy has been identified in a large client study as most effective when clients are asked what helped. I can help you to identify your unique childhood and family history experiences and how to desensitize, reprocess and learn to shift what doesn't work to more effective coping strategies. Homework and journalling are used to track your progress.
