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.

We all have disappointments and failed dreams but sometimes depression sneaks up on us and steals the joy from even the small things. It is challenging to find the balance between struggling against versus giving in to the lethargy. I help people explore needs, wants, preferences and obligations in order to identify where to focus the current limited amounts of energy and what is most likely to create additional energy. I provide a safe space where you don't have to put on a fake smile, where you can talk about the things that everyone else is tired of hearing about, and where you can explore what your depression might be trying to tell you.

Depression is a suffering that takes the joy out of life and seems endless and hopeless. It drains your self-esteem. It is a sign of a problem but it makes solving problems more difficult. Sometimes medication can help, but psychotherapy is more effective. There are several approaches to getting out of depression and I would use all of them. We can work to notice and challenge depressing thoughts. We can work with underlying trauma or loss where you may have begun to feel depressed. I can also support you to take the kind of actions that lift your mood. You will learn ways of being more nourished and fulfilled.

What if you knew that your brain has a built-in way to stop depression from dragging you down? Depression is a natural mind-state that every human knows, but sometimes depression locks onto us and won't let go. If this is happening to you, we can show you how to level the playing field in your favor, without medication. Not all counseling approaches tap into recent neurological research that shows that you can learn to separate from depressed parts of your mind and build new channels within you that are not clogged with depression static. Visit our detailed website or call to learn more about this modern approach to transform your depression and start living the life you've been missing!

A lot of people tend to blame themselves for having depression when they do not get better. They especially feel bad when they do not get enough support from their family members. When you have depression, you can’t just suck it up or ignore it. It’s not that simple. When you have clinical depression, you lose the ability to feel happy. But, through the therapy treatment, you will be able to regain your happiness back!

Most people come to therapy for depression, and this is usually after a loss. We look to see what that loss might have been and with your courage and my compassion, we do the grief work that is needed. Other people have suffered from "over control." That is, they have adopted unrealistic standards of self-control and perfectionism and find it impossible to fully embrace themselves. We work to help them with this task. Still others have depression as anger turned inwards. They find that when they are finally able to get in touch with their walled-off anger, they are able to feel less depressed.

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.

I have a great deal of experience helping clients who are going through feelings and symptoms of depression and/or anxiety. I use a variety of ways to guide clients to feel more content and happy. I use cognitive therapy with clients who tend to be perfectionists and/or are self-critical. I use gestalt therapy with clients who need to more fully express their feelings. I use hypnosis with clients who need to get in better touch with their inner strengths. Everyone deserves to feel good inside.
