Depression comes as a whisper of condemnation or of shame for our behaviors or our feelings or our inadequacies. It insinuates itself into every dimension of our lives, sapping our joy and energy for life. It grows into a black cloud and finally a heavy burden which weighs us down. But emotions have their own logic. Let me help you unravel the perplexing logic of your depression and rebuild healthy and stable emotions.

Depression is not only a chemical imbalance in the brain, but a state of being. My goal with clients is to increase their level of functioning, to establish healthy coping skills, and coordinate with their primary care physician for medication management if appropriate. Clients with a depression diagnosis can greatly benefit from therapy when they are active participants in their own treatment.
