Like chronic pain, depression is a presence that reduces a sense of a positive future and fulfilling present. Its shadow has many origins, running from genetics, learning from depressed family members, to traumas and other difficult life events. My goal is to help clients learn how to accept the depressed emotions without judging them, and to understand that their pasts do not determine their futures. The client then gains the freedom to create new futures that are more hopeful and fulfilling. I do this by using a combination of meditative techniques, hypnosis, EMDR, and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy.
