All of us as human beings experience depression from time to time. We are creatures of habit and some of us can get into patterns of being depressed on a regular basis. Depression can come from multiple sources. A lack of confidence and self-esteem are major causes of depression. Depression can also be seen as the opposite of expression, meaning that some people hold anger and assertiveness inside. That powerful energy needs to go somewhere, so it is turned back against the self, resulting in depression (sort of an attack against the self). My approach is to help you become more aware of what may be contributing to your depression and addressing those issues. I am good at helping people shif

When a client feels depressed, I take the time to get a history of the depression, as well as a clear picture of overall health status. Often depression is rooted where something is stuck, or unprocessed, and if we can get to the root, and bring understanding and compassion there, relief can come. Depression also is notorious for its long list of false beliefs and cognitive distortions: "It's hopeless." "I'm not worth it." etc. In a good therapy relationship, we can challenge these and build the Truth Muscle, which talks back to the distorted thoughts and asserts what is really true. And sometimes depression is secondary to diet, sleep, stress, etc. If so, this is where we begin the work.
