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.

Depression is anger turned inward or against yourself. As anger builds within, an individual has three choices: To channel the anger energy assertively by expressing the feelings attached to the situations causing one to feel depressed; to express the anger through outbursts that can be very destructive to the self and others; to internalize the anger and become more depressed and less functional with time. My job is to enable you to learn how to identify and express feelings that are causing you to feel depressed. The next step is to change behaviors associated with your feelings freeing you from depressive thoughts and feelings.

Not all 'depression' looks the same. For some people, it can be feeling endlessly tired despite sleeping too much, a change in weight, and a seemingly viscous cycle of negative thoughts that trigger a low sense of self esteem and self worth. For others, it can be a heaviness or sense of sadness that lasts most of the time and involves a loss of interest in the things that once brought you joy. My approach to treating depression relies heavily on the scientifically supported methods of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy that can help you learn new skills to develop healthier ways to think that promote feeling better and decrease the frequency and intensity of the depression.

My goal with clients who suffer from depression is to get you up and going again so you can enjoy your life more, and experience greater meaning and satisfaction. Depression can make a person feel exhausted and gloomy, and it tends to make people think things will never get better. But depression is one of the most treatable emotional disorders. I am committed to supporting my depressed patients to become "formerly depressed," and to have some energy again, to have something to look forward to, to feel like life is meaningful again.

I treat depression in adults, adolescents and children using an integrative approach that combines psychodynamic and cognitive-behavioral therapies, tailoring treatment to each unique individual. Depression, even the most severe cases, is a highly treatable disorder. As with many illnesses, the earlier that treatment can begin, the more effective it is and the greater the likelihood that recurrence can be prevented. Psychotherapy addresses the thinking patterns that precipitate depression, and studies show that it prevents recurrence.

Often depression is held in place by thoughts and beliefs that suck the hope out of one's life. Therapy is effective in finding the source of the problem and providing tools for intercepting and changing the problematic thought patterns. Medication may or may not be needed to get the process started. When one gains the ability to envision a rewarding life, it often ends the cycle of depression.
