Depression is misunderstood, widely experienced and for those who suffer from it, they are ripe for judgment from those whom have never had it. We know some things about depression. We know that it can be chemical but it is also situational. For whatever we know, we do know this. Depression is real and it can have devastating effects on a person, which impacts every aspect of life. It affects choices around food, alcohol, money, sex life, addictions, job performance, exercise, family relationships, parenting, etc. There is help. It is hard work. That’s the truth. There is a way through this pretty common part of life. If you think you are depressed, you probably are. There is no shame ....

I like a quote by Stephen King: "Monsters are real, and ghosts are real too. They live inside us and sometimes they win." Depression is an internal enemy that is no more a person than leukemia or diabetes. Depression tells three lies: 1. Everything sucks. 2. It's your fault and 3. It can't be changed. Depression isn't done until it's victim takes his/her own life. The good news is that this type of problem can often be fixed through completing a good evaluation and following it up with cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) and sometimes, though not always, medication. As a man I'll never give birth, but I've given more rebirths, to people suffering from depression, than I can begin to count.

People who struggle with depression are often misunderstood by the people around them. Often times people think they should just "snap out of it". What many don't understand is that depression can be a scary, debilitating illness that takes over a person's life. While depression can be situational or chronic, there are tools, strategies and medicines which are very effective in managing its effects. Clients can benefit by having a therapist that is patient and understanding who can both empathize with how they are feeling and offer ways for the person to take back control of his or her life. In a collaborative way, I work with clients to develop a treatment plan which gives them hope.

Depression is one of the most common reasons for seeking therapy, and it is very treatable with modern psychological approaches. The causes of depression can often come from multiple sources, and one of the goals of therapy is to localize and isolate those causes. Relaxation techniques, talk therapy and a combination of cognitive behavioral therapy are all effective methods for treating depression.
