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.

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.

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!

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.

Anxiety and depression are a part of everyone's life. When they become persistent or prevent us from moving forward in life it is time for professional help. I will work directly with you on relieving your symptoms as well as with a psycho-pharmacologist if medication is necessary. I use a mindful approach to anxiety reduction and relapse prevention for major depression. I assist you in learning how to work with mood shifts in a mindful way. You will learn how to notice thoughts and their impact on physical and emotional experiences, accept these thoughts and experiences, and use this information to develop a different relationship to thoughts, feelings, and bodily sensations.

Our approach to therapy focuses on the whole person and not just the symptoms. We are trained in various treatments they may be used by themselves or in combination with others, depending on our client's needs. We find that most of our clients benefit from a combination of Psychodynamic and Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT) to address depression. Psychodynamic Therapy will help you gain insight about how your emotions affect your behaviors. CBT also uncovers core beliefs, but it takes you a step further by helping you break those unhealthy thought/behavior patterns and replace with new ones. Contact us today to assess which approach is appropriate for you in managing depression.

Research shows that the most effective treatment for depression is psychotherapy. Depression can range from feeling down to major symptoms such as having trouble even getting out of bed or contemplating suicide (if you have suicidal thoughts or plans, call the National Suicide Prevention Line at 1-800-273-8255). Online counseling is effective for depression because it is easy to access: you can start treatment without even leaving the house.

Life can present you with difficult situations which are hard to process and move past. These challenges are not on your timeline and affect everything. Having worked in many healthcare settings, I am familiar navigating life-changing events and grief. I understand the territory of encountering loss, coping with trauma, the complexity of the medical system and living with illness. These issues can have ripple effects on your relationships, sense of self and perceptions of the world. I know how complex things can get, and I will support you during this process.
