We all experience ups and downs in life. This is normal and pat of living life. However, depression is characterized by feelings that are much more intense, let longer, and interfere more intensely with day-to-day functioning and interaction with other people. It is a serious condition that can impact every aspect of your life. It can affect your family relationships, work relationship, and impact negatively on your sense of self worth. Depression is very treatable. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy is our primary approach to treating depression and it has been proven to be effective for most forms of depression and even to prevent the occurrence of future depressive episodes.

Research has shown that cogntive behavioral therapy is effective for treating depression. Therefore we will collaboratively work to help you address the cognitive, emotional and behavioral factors that may be contributing to or maintaining your depression. Addressing these factors will effectively reduce depressive symptoms and increase hope. Part of our work together will include helping you better understand what depression is, and teaching you to identify and resolve beliefs that you may have developed about yourself, the world and others that often contributes to depression. We will also use an approach called behavioral activation to help you increased energy and activity level.

It is common to feel down or 'blue' at different points in our lives, when we are overwhelmed with stress, coping with a loss, or dealing with a difficult transition. When depression becomes chronic, it can be seen as a non-verbal way we communicate to ourselves and others around us a deeply personal message, which we may not be consciously aware of: I’m hurting, I feel helpless, I can’t accept something shameful. I work with you to understand what your depression means in the context of your history and how to use it to mobilize your self-awareness into greater alignment with your values, aspirations and goals. You benefit by becoming empowered to act and choose how you want to live.

I view depression from existential, cognitive behavioral, psychodynamic, social learning, systems, and medical models. I view that shame, low self-concept, and deeper identity and existential issues often do underlie moderate and severe depression, and support SSRI or SNRI interventions for postpartum moms and clients with moderate to severe depression, with recurrence. I employ assessments and CBT homework assignments to help clients reduce their negative cognitive lens, and encourage client resilience through positive coping skills (e.g. exercise), meaning-making, and positive psychology exercises (e.g. gratitude and altruism).

You will learn how to live your life to the fullest.

Depression is a cloud over one's life. For those afflicted with depression, please understand you are not alone. You are not going out of your mind, and the black cloud can be lifted. As a depressed Christian, don't feel ashamed. A sad truth is that many Christians attach spiritual failure to depression. So, they suffer in silence, hoping, and praying for deliverance. For clients wishing to be treated without habit forming drugs, I can assist in finding a reprieve, through Bibliotherapeutic, and God's earthly grown methods. If it is determined that medication is required, I can provide a referral. With both methodologies in place, the mind, body, and soul can be successfully restored.

Depression is a syndrome, not a distinct disorder. There are many paths to and out of depression so no one single approach is likely to be effective with many people. So part of my approach is to do a careful evaluation and to be sure that all psychological and biological bases are covered. For some, the chance to share, discuss, express, be acknowledged is primary. For others, alterations ways of thinking and accepting their internal states and responses may be called for. For yet others, involvement of a spouse or significant other may be the ticket. I do refer people for medication if it seems appropriate, but only when it seems truly necessary and other things seem insufficient.

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.

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!

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.
