Are you feeling down? Do you have difficulty getting a good night sleep? Do you lack the energy or interest to do the things you once found interesting? Depression is a state of being that can impact us physically, psychologically, and spiritually. Depression can be overcome or greatly managed, but it does take work. Psychologically, the work requires you to become increasingly mindful of your thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. Once we are able to see, we have the option to change.

There are many varieties of depression, from the nearly universal experience of “blues” to soul-crushing, “can’t lift my head out of bed” depression. We help sort out the source of depression, which can include being emotionally “underfed”, to un-grieved losses, trauma experiences, biological disorders, family emotional inheritance, and a lack of connection with your inner source of guidance. After exploring the experience of depression, and the context of a client’s life, we collaboratively shape a plan of treatment, and carefully monitor progress. We coordinate with other care providers, such as physicians.

One out of four people will have a depressive episode during their lives. Some suffer from chronic depression. The best approach for chronic depression is medication and talk therapy. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, in particular, can help the client identify, process and alter ideas and thoughts that interfere with adaptive living. Breaking through and restructuring these maladaptive thoughts can alleviate depression. This technique is a collaboration between the therapist and client, and can greatly improve the quality of one's life.
