I use cognitive behavioral approaches to depression which have been demonstrated by research. Cognitive therapy techniques involve learning to identify automatic throughts which produce or reinforce depression so as to learn how to alter these thoughts before they become overwhelmning. Behavioral approaches involve mobiizing oneself and developing constuctive and affirmative behaivoal patterns as opposed to such behaivors as withdrawal and apathy which contribnute to depression. With my approach, I select interventiosn which make sense to the patient so the patient feels confience that they can succeed.

Depression is different from sadness. The most common reason people come to therapy is because of depression. When we feel hopeless, uninterested in our lives, and sad most days, it is time to talk about it and begin feeling better. In my 20 years of practice, the majority of clients come in feeling depressed. I can help you begin feeling better in the first few sessions. We will identify what is causing the depression, help you heal it, and get on with enjoying your life.

Depression is a medical illness characterized by a sad mood, low energy, feelings of hopelessness and helplessness, and loss of pleasure or motivation. Capital Counseling treats depression using cognitive behavioral counseling and supportive psychotherapy which have been found to be very effective in helping individuals to overcome this debilitating condition. We also use group therapy which is helpful in overcoming the social isolation many people with depression experience. We often work in collaboration with psychiatrists and nurse practitioners who can prescribe anti-depressant medication to support recovery.

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.
