Depression is often misunderstood. Family and friends give well-meaning advice such as "you need to get out more." It would be nice if that's all it took! While medication is sometimes needed, it takes several weeks for you to feel the full effects. A therapist who specializes in working with depression can often offer some quick benefits. Low self esteem and/or a history of abuse or trauma is often at the very root of depression. I am certified in a particular therapy that relieves that type of hurt. Call me for an appointment, and together we can work to get you some fast relief from depression.

Depression is a common but serious condition that is highly treatable. Depression can make everyday activities seem unbearable, things that used to be enjoyable lose value, and comfort may seem difficult to find. Depression can often interfere with relationships and responsibilities if left untreated. There is hope for regaining your love for life, happiness, and comfort. You are capable of growth and worthy of happiness.

Depression is often a result of failed or failing relationships or a lack of fulfullment in life. I work with my clients to understand how their behaviors and relationships are currently effecting their emotions and what changes need to be made to live the life they wish for. Commonly, clients leave the first session feeling a greater sense of hope due to homework assignments they've been given and/or validation of their emotions.
