The normal ups and downs of life mean that everyone feels sad or has "the blues" from time to time. Depression is different from normal sadness in that it engulfs your day-to-day life, interfering with your ability to work, study, eat, sleep, and have fun. The feelings of helplessness, hopelessness, and worthlessness are intense and unrelenting, with little, if any, relief. I have found in treating clients with depression that a multi-pronged approach is most effective and includes a combination of social support, lifestyle changes and emotional skills building learned within the therapeutic relationship.

Lack of pleasure, emotional deadness, lack of energy, withdrawal from those people and activities that we have valued, and a constant stream of negative thoughts about life are part of what depression does to us. Stress in relationships at home and work and early trauma can create depression. A caring relationship with an experienced and genuine other offers the way out of depression. This is what I provide for you.

I believe that depression is anger turned inward. I would use psycotherapy to delve into the reasons for the anger. Where did it originate and discuss methods to use on a daily basis to resolve this anger through a spiritual life and gratitudes. I would also take a family history and have the patient get a medical exam to identify the possiblity of it being a genetic disorder or physical malady. Concurring with the medical doctor or naturopath I would discuss methods to use through diet and exercise, meditation and social outlets to deal on a daily basis with the depression.
