Depression is often a very debilitating condition that many people live with. It keeps us from living the vital, healthy, whole lives we are meant to live. Coming to understand the underlying causes of depression (often associated with anxiety) is a important part of my work. Approaching the depressed client with compassion,promoting healing and resolution, we can move through the pain and disempowerment to a re-emergence of life and energy.

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.

I have great respect for people who are struggling in their life with an overall lack of satisfaction and motivation. I will help you identify those “triggers” that cause your low mood, and to develop coping skills to help you feel better. My clients report that they are able to sense and identify mood fluctuations as a result of our counseling sessions. Clients that are on medication can expect a team approach to their wellness, as I consult with physicians. If you are reading this right now, you or someone you care about is struggling with the ability to sustain important relationships. If so, you can call or email me to determine if counseling is right for you.

Depression is generally considered a reaction to physical or psychological stress, and any number of stressors can lead to depressive symptoms. These can include personality, environmental, or biomedical factors, i.e. chemical imbalances in the brain, trauma, and/or situational factors. Sometimes illness or certain drugs (including alcohol, prescribed medications, etc.) as well as improper diet and nutrition contribute to depression. Treatment includes identifying and understanding the underpinnings and circumstances of your depression (insight), learning helpful coping skills, and getting extra support so you can feel better and recover.

Understanding depression as anger at past events can help clients to understand and gain incite as to why they no longer care about life in the present moment. Often anxiety accompanies depression as worry about the future makes thoughts overactive. By using acceptance and commitment along with day to day wellness methods, we can work together to transition you back into looking forward to living your life in the moment as best as we all can. It is not an easy task to manage our lives successfully but staying stuck will only bring more regret.

If you’re struggling with depression, you may feel overwhelmingly sad, lacking the energy to do the simplest things, and disconnected from others. But you don’t have to face depression alone. The process of therapy can provide the support and guidance you need to begin to heal. I help my clients access their innate strengths and learn to trust the wisdom of their emotions. As you develop coping strategies to navigate painful feelings, you will gain a new sense of your power and competency. Therapy provides the opportunity to learn to connect with those you love in healthier ways, to discover an enhanced sense of well-being, and to live more fully in the present moment.

Depression is not a good thing. Our society sees it as a copout and rightly so. Many depressives are 't able to work or play or even love - the three principles of Sigmond Freud, the founder of modern psychology. Furthermore, depression is spiritually wronv It needs to be medically or Biblically remedied before something else goes wrong. The depression easily becomes addiction to moral turpitude so depressives can die! This is a society which believes in happiness. So the depressions severity needs to change.
