When life drains you and leaves you feeling overwhelmed and without energy, counseling can help. Therapy can help you explore the issues that are weighing you down and help you find ways to cope with pain and fear that may be holding you back. Sometimes, we get caught into patterns of negativity and therapy can help change these patterns and let you see new possibilities. Self esteem and positive feelings can be cultivated and enhanced. Hope, energy, and passion can be restored through the counseling process.

Although their are various symptoms attributed to depression, at its core it involves a loss of one's sense of passion and purpose in living. I help people recover their lost sense of passion and purpose by helping them look deep inside themselves for what they have lost. It is not easy work, but it is very rewarding. Once this work is done, the symptoms of depression are no longer needed.

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.

There are many forms of depression. Some people have a major depression needing both counseling and perhaps medication. Other people come in with low level depression or situational form following a loss or perhaps a trauma. Some people need to process their situation and see it from a different perspective along with exercise, connecting with other people, joining support groups, focusing on moments when they felt strong and competent. I will design, along with you, strategies to help manage the depression and bring hope back into your life.

I approach Depression from several angles. 1)Lifestyle changes (adequate sleep, exercise, nutrition, fun activities), 2) Underlying beliefs about oneself that contribute to low self-esteem and shame, 3) Positive support system of friends and family, and 3) The possible need for medication or natural supplements if there seems to be a true brain chemistry imbalance that cannot be fully addressed just with regular therapy. I have found that ALL of these areas must be addressed in order to effectively treat Depression.

Depression breeds hopelessness, a pervasive darkness that can make it difficult to reach for help. You may feel a low grade of chronic depression in which you can function but rarely seem to enjoy anything you do. Or it may feel like there’s a refrigerator on your chest, making it difficult to even get out of bed. Others around you don’t understand, telling you to “cheer up” or “get over it,” not understanding why your mood is so low. While the best results are often a combination of therapy and medication, therapy alone is often successful in treating depression. Good therapy will provide a path out of depression, a journey that has you feeling better and more hopeful along the way.

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.

Depression can feel like a dark cloud that hovers over you. Sometimes it can come with no warning and feel like the cloud will never go away and like you’ll never see the light of happiness. I provide a safe place for people to talk about their feelings and some tools to help people get some relief from depression. People’s strength to get through tough days and tough times is inspirational. I am reminded of this quote A.A. Milne writes for Christopher Robbin: “Promise me you'll always remember: You're braver than you believe, and stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.”

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.

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.

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 linked to certain EEG patterns of cortical under-stimulation. Knowing this science provides many additional avenues of approach. But we also need to change the mental pathways that lead to depression...this is not easy, but it can be done. I felt so strongly about this, I wrote a book about it: "How to Eliminate Depression and Negative Thinking".
