We all do our best to have an abundance of hope in our lives. Sometimes circumstances, emotional wreckage and frustration prevent our reaching our goals and expectations. By identifying the emotional toll charged by an endless cycle of frustration, a personal plan of growth will be put in place. This approach short-circuits frustration and provides hope now and into tomorrow. Dr. Eljay has 20 years of counseling experience in lessening this burden.

Nobody should feel depression. As a therapist who has also suffered from depression, I fully understand the difficulty it brings in ones life. I have therefore tremendous empathy for the client who struggles from depression, and will do whatever I can to help. I will work closely with your Psychiatrist, and if you don't have one, I will find one for you, so that if necessary we can apply therapy in conjunction of medication.

My work with clients who experience depression involves the identification of one's 'internal working model' or lens that filters one's experience of self, other, and life in general. Persistent, negative thoughts about oneself ('I am worthless'), the other ('People cannot be trusted') and the future ('there is no hope that things will change') shape experience and relationships thus perpetuating a negative cycle. Experience of self and other within a safe, nonjudgemental, strength based working relationship fosters movement towards trust, self-worth and hope.

Do you feel that depression is crushing you? Depression results from repression of traumas as well as emotional deprivation, etc. from family of origin and current situations and relationships. Ms. Tracey's approach to healing depression is to help unearth the root causes and to find new, healthier ways of relating to the inner dynamics of the depression. Ms. Tracey also uses Schema therapy, a cognitive approach, and to uncover false beliefs about oneself which dramatically changes one's self-esteem and relationship issues. Uncovering hidden beliefs about oneself. This uncovers buried feelings and helps to alleviate depression. It creates hopefulness and new energy for life.

Through the use of cognitive behavioral therapy, patients will learn the relationship between their thoughts, feelings and behavior. They will learn relaxation techniques and coping strategies to tackle difficult situations. Patients will learn coping skills to handle stressors which may be precipitating a change in mood. Developing interpersonal skills is key to establishing better relationships with significant others, family, and friends.

Depression is often controlled by our unconscious feelings, thoughts, memories, and dreams. Drawing on Positive Psychology and other therapeutic models, I help clients to understand how we relive early experiences unconsciously, and I coach them on behavioral techniques they can use to overcome the vicious cycle of negativity and change their present. These include a blend of empirically based techniques clients can use at work or at home to overcome depression, end self-sabotage, and get unstuck.

Through mindfulness I will help you to let go of negative thoughts and enrich positive experiences. I will help you build and recognize your strengths. I will help you understand how interpersonal dynamics may be contributing to your depression. I will create a safe place so you can explore thoughts and feelings enabling you to gain clarity regarding desires and goals.

When you are depressed, you lack energy and motivation, and want to isolate, which is one of the worst things you can do. Negative thinking drags you further into a hole, and staying alone with your thoughts can make the depression worse. I will help you evaluate your thoughts and your situation more objectively, and give you ideas about how to begin to pull yourself out of the darkness. Trying to do it alone can just prolong it. Sometimes you just need a hand to pull you up. I can do that.
