Feeling hopeless, worthless, joyless, without choices or chances is a desperate way to be. Maybe you feel this way every winter. Maybe a certain situation has you overwhelmed. Could be midlife hormones, or maybe you can't point to any clear cause at all. Depression has ahold of you. My approach is to find and treat the cause, and help you confront the traumas, people, suppressed angers and prolonged disappointments that contribute to this suffering. You'll learn effective mood management tools, and I'll help you accelerate the ability to recognize what routinely triggers depression in you. Therapy will help you create a well of resilience. Let's start today.

While external circumstances and biology definitely can affect our moods, so can our underlying beliefs about ourselves and our relationships. My goal is to teach people how to explore their feelings without being overwhelmed by them. Once we become more connected safely to ourselves, our connection with the external world begins to change too. We may also look at changing diet and exercise, find ways to balance work, play and rest so you can feel replenished and nurture what is meaningful 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 is a complex syndrome that means different things for different people. Self blame and judgment can be part of the picture. Depression can be a crisis and also an opportunity to address current circumstances that are troublesome and patterns that do not contribute to healthy living. Often depression is about a need to let go of past hurts, address beliefs that are not "the truth," and learn new coping skills. Therapy offers a safe place to focus on this.

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.

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.
