The number one priority I have when working with clients who are depressed is to help them see that they can learn how to cope with and manage paralyzing thoughts and feelings that hold them back in life. My clients and I work together to develop and implement several strategies to replace the negative, irrational and unrealistic thoughts they have with positive, rational and realistic ones. I also work with clients on exploring and understanding the underlying issues that may be contributing to their current feelings and problems. Through this process, clients stop repeating self defeating and self sabotaging behaviors to pursue and achieve their life goals.

In sessions, we will explore the ways in which your symptoms are affected by your relationships, including family and friends. You are given the opportunity to focus on the meaningful relationships in your life and how they may be contributing to your symptoms of depression. As these relationships are developed or improved, inter-personal connection is strengthened. This sense of support or emotional connection proves critical in alleviating depression. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is used to target negative thoughts, emotions, and actions that contribute to your depression. You will learn modulated, positive, and effective emotional responses to whatever life brings your way.
