Depression comes in many forms. It does not manifest itself the same way in different people. Therefore I use an individualized approach in which I obtain a thorough history from you. I will ask you what symptoms you have been having and for how long. I believe in a holistic approach in which I get to know your many strengths, and we work together to use new ways of thinking in order to improve your moods.

Everyone gets depressed at times. But when it affects you day in and day out, interferring with your eating, sleeping, work and relationships, you may need someone to talk to professionally. Someone with training and experience and who is understanding and empathetic. Through cognitive behavioral, person centered, and solution focused therapy one can learn to feel good and be happy, setting positive goals and completing journal exercises to help you see negative patterns and gaining solutions to maintaining a positive attitude and outlook. If depression continues for a long period of time, a medication mangagement consult along with talk therapy may be necessary.
